Creative Drummer - New Sounds

Dario Esposito on SoundBetter

Drummer and producer 25 years experienced in various musical generes and for many artists. Maximum attention at instruments, vintage, modern and electronic sounds. Great recording studio room and only top microphones. Collaborations with important progressive rock, experimental, and jazz groups, pop artists, songwriters and soundtrack composers.

I love record my drums and enhance the tracks of the artist I work with.
During this process for me is fundamental entering with mind and body in the mood of the song. I choose the right setup, with a extreme importance in the tuning, and on creating che right sound for the track. The choice and position of the microphones is also foundamental. If required I do drum arrangiaments for the tracks I have to play on.
I always sand an mp3, and if all is ok I send all the drum track up to 16 files.
I'm proud to be endorser of Ludwig drums, Paiste cymbals, Vic Firth drumsticks, Remo drumheads and Roland electronics, and to play very beautiful instruments. I also have a great studio room sound that make my drums sound incredibile! My gear now is:
