Acoustic drum tracks

Bespoke live custom drum tracks – recorded through top-notch gear

With top-notch recording gear and a selection of modern and vintage drum kits, plus a wide choice of cymbals, you can be guaranteed a drum sound to compliment your song perfectly!

Professional studio-grade drum tracks

If you want the absolute best in studio-quality drum tracks, this is the option for you. Your drum tracks will be recorded in my purpose-built studio which has been acoustically treated to ensure the drums sound the best they can. Careful attention is given to each microphone placement, ensuring there are no phase issues.

Sculpt the sound you want in the mix stage by utilising the array of microphones (13 in total!) used to capture the kit.

“I’ll never look for another session drummer again. Max NAILED his parts, followed suggestions / requests above and beyond expectations and provided the highest quality output possible. If only every musician was this easy to work with! I don’t just endorse his service, I truly urge it.”

Pricing guide

In order to be fair, I have moved away from a fixed pricing scheme. Every project is different, with varying levels of complexity and requirements.

To give you an idea, prices typically range between £60 – £110 per song.

You can request a quote from me below and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

All quotes include:

You will receive up to 13 unprocessed multitrack files as WAVs ready for you to mix right away within your software (Logic, ProTools, Cubase etc). These are recorded at 44Khz, 24bit unless specified otherwise.

These consist of:

  • x1 Snare top
  • x1 Snare bottom (phase reversed)
  • x1 Hi-hat
  • x1 Kick In
  • x1 Kick Out
  • x1 Sub Kick
  • x2 Rack Toms
  • x2 Floor Tom
  • x2 Overheads
  • x1 Room Mic

Your session will be charted out and set up to a click.

Up to 3 revisions to your track. The first take you receive is labelled V1. As part of the price we can go up to V4. If we exceed V4 further amendments will be charged at £8 GBP per subsequent revision.

This might seem obvious, but you would be surprised at the amount of times I have clients tell me about poor communication when using similar services in the past. As part of the price, you will receive direct and timely communication throughout the process.

You don’t pay until you are completely satisfied. This ensures you walk away with drum tracks you love!

Discounts for larger projects

If your project consists of 3 or more songs, then I'm pleased to offer discounts on the total cost. The more songs I record for you, the bigger the discount.

Simple all-inclusive price

Hiring me to record remotely will always be far more affordable than renting a studio, hiring an engineer AND drummer separately.

Secure payment via PayPal®

You only pay when you're 100% satisfied with your drum tracks. Once you're ready to pay, all payments are made via PayPal® for ease and simplicity. Residents of the UK can pay via BACS payment if they wish.
