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 room sound 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:

  1. Review by Ludovica

    Dario è un musicista sinceramente innamorato del suo strumento, entusiasta e sempre pronto a recepire i suggerimenti dei collaboratori. E' sempre alla ricerca di soluzioni e ama mettersi alla prova: doti preziose e sempre più rare. Complimenti e grazie di cuore per aver lavorato con noi! Alla prossima! :-)

  3. Review by Alessandro Gregori

    Dario non è soltanto un grandissimo professionista, ma anche una grandissima persona. Ho avuto l'enorme piacere di conoscerlo alcuni anni fa per le registrazioni di alcuni brani e Il suo impatto sull'arrangiamento fù da subito incredibile per qualità ed interpretazione. Strumentazione di altissimo livello, accompagnata da un talento straordinario.
    Artista con la A dei giganti.

    Dario as well as being a friend is an exceptional drummer and his contribution to "The Ancient Samovar" on www.ellesmere-project.com was highly professional and of highest quality. Thanks again Dario, a warm hug from the heart. Roberto Vitelli

  5. Review by Paolo Camerini

    Ho lavorato con Dario per il mio ultimo cd con il progetto Traindeville ed è stata una bella collaborazione, Dario è molto professionale e siamo riusciti a intenderci e ad entrare in sintonia anche a distanza, gli ho spedito i brani da registrare e ci siamo confrontati sui possibili arrangiamenti di batteria. Il lavoro è stato ottimo, le batterie ben registrate, sono molto soddisfatto!!
