“Max did great percussion tracks for a song I’m working on, accordingly to what I asked him and better! He’s got the skills to play and obviously the knowledge and equipment to record as well. Easy going, fast and efficient. Great!”

Pricing guide

In order to be fair, I have moved away from a fixed pricing scheme. Every project is different and requires varying amounts of time and effort.

As a guide, percussion tracks can cost between £15 – £50, depending on complexity, requirements and optional extras.

All prices include:

Up to 9 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.

Percussion instruments include:

  • Cajon
  • Shakers
  • Tambourines
  • Woodblocks
  • Cowbells
  • Bongos
  • Congas
  • Darbuka

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 percussion tracks you love!

Discounts for larger projects

I'm pleased to offer discounts when booking 3 or more songs in one go. That way I can get the kit set up exactly right for your project, and give all my attention to your tracks with minimal changes required between songs. Recording this way gives you the best results and is encouraged.​

Secure payment via PayPal®

As mentioned above, you only pay when you're totally satisfied with your percussion tracks. Once you're ready to pay, all payments are made via PayPal® to ensure a hassle-free experience. Residents of the UK can pay via BACS payment. All major currencies accepted.
