Hey there! My name is Wes. I live in Portland, OR, and I will lay down drums on your track! I love to play funky music but I definitely appreciate a great song and anything with a backbeat. I've been playing the drums in various ensembles for over 10 years and studied with some amazing teachers at Berklee College of Music and in also Portland.

My playing style has been described as jazz, hip hop, groove, r&b, soul, rock, rudimental, and funky. I also program beats, and also can provide a hybrid of live and programmed on request.

Drums:
Ludwig Classic Maple 22x18/12x10/15x16
Ludwig Black Beauty Snare Drum 5x14
Allegra Maple Snare Drum 7x13
Sonor Black Mamba Steel Snare Drum 5x10

Cymbals:
Cymbal Foundry 22" Ride, 16" Crash, 14" Hi Hats (Turkish-made)
Zildjian 20" K Kerope Ride
Sabian 16" AAX El Sabor Picante Hand Crash

Percussion:
LP Matador Bongos 7.25" and 8.5" natural rawhide heads
LP Matador Congas 11" Quinto & 11.75" Conga natural rawhide heads
Djembe with natural goat skin, hand carved in Ivory Coast
Shakers (various textures)
Tamborine (various)
Claves
Cowbells (various)
Various other sounds
Bass Drum beaters (felt, wood, puffy, plastic)
Sticks, brushes, mallets, and more!

Electronics:
SPD-SX Sample Pad
Novation Launchpad X

Microphones:
Audio Technica ATM250 hypercardioid kick drum mic
Audio Technica ATM650 hypercardioid snare mic

I will send you a stereo mix of my drums (4 tracks), recorded on a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 into Ableton Live. On special request, I can book out a professional studio and pull out all the stops (additional fees apply in that case). Send me a message and let's start a conversation.
