Bodo Schopf on SoundBetter

drummer for Michael Schenker

Hi, my name is Bodo Schopf and I am a session and live drummer. I live and work in Porto San Paolo Italy. I've been playing drums for over 40 years and I have been recording drums and percussion on over 300 Albums and over a thousand trailers and commercials, I'd love the opportunity to drum on your song!
All I need is a stereo rough mix of your song without drums starting from, & the BPM. We talk about the vibe and sound you want. Then you send your files via WeTransfer or similar.
After the recording, I'll send you an Mp3 of your song with my drums, then we talk about any changes you may want, once you're happy I'll send you all individual drum tracks, and a stereo drum mix if required.
And I will do all I can to make sure you get exactly what you want for your song.
I also play percussion Latin Style, and Ethno percussion got a lot of percussion Instruments.
Some of my credits: Michael Schenker, Eric Burdon, Chris Thompson, Hazel O`Connor, Mick Jackson, Eloy, The Sweet, Wrecia Ford, Chris Norman, Andy Johns, Frank Filipetti, Marc Sway and many more

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

    Thanks to Bodo, our songs have gone to a new level. We needed someone who would understand our brand of music and would play with the fire and passion that he possesses. His timing and choice of fills is just beautiful! Our sincere Thanks to you Bodo. :)
