Pete Warner on SoundBetter

I record drums, and percussion in my own studio in Bristol, with a vast range of drum sounds and stylised options, and a high quality selection of mics, to get you the best stems possible.

A couple of years back I needed to find a place to teach my drum students in a more professional setting. In the space I have now, I have upgraded the quality of the sound isolation, the sound treatment, and the recording equipment I have. Now I record sessions there every week. Get in touch and I'll record yours.

In just the last few years, I’ve played with 30+ bands, some of the shows ranging over 10 countries. Genres include many from Jazz, Hip Hop and Drum and Bass through to folk, country and more experimental electronic performance.

I have been working as a drummer, session drummer, booking agent, festival booker, sound engineer, promoter, venue music manager, stage tech, music teacher, drum workshop leader, tour driver and tour manager in the last 18 years and building up my experience in all these fields.

Now I am focused on recording drums and providing songs with great drum tracks. Constantly upgrading my equipment, and looking for better sounds and angles.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Pete did a great job at laying down drums for us! He exceeded our expectations on time scale and made the process of transferring the tracks so easy. The quality of the recording was excellent and Pete was happy to make revisions to the take on request. Would highly recommend him.

    Pete is a fantastic drummer and he was able to step in and produce some bouncing grooves for me with a speedy turnaround. I Highly recommend this man and his services. He has a great ear and is total pro.

    I have worked with Pete many times over the years and can fully recommend him as a session musician, promoter, sound engineer and tour driver. The fact that I have worked with him in these capacities many times is testament to his abilities. He is one of those rare people who are not only extremely talented but also very organised, communicative, full to the brim of optimism and a "can-do" attitude. A rare breed indeed!

    As a sound engineer it's always a pleasure to work with a great drummer like Pete, who is also careful to select the right drum configuration for the project. His attention to tone is real nice, he's extremely efficient and i'd highly recommend him for any session drums you need.

    Working with drummers from distance is difficult. Pete Warner went above and beyond my usual expectations sending high quality pre-mixed demos, rapidly responding to communication and above all being pro-active. Oh and did I mention his drums sound sweet - that classic sound we needed for our folk/rock track.

    Pete was a great drummer to work with! his turn around was really quick, providing awesome drum tracks in less than a week. He could play any style I threw at him and even took my picky nature on the chin! Would definitely recommend him!
