Session Drums & Percussion
Your songs could stand out from the rest with a unique percussive texture and groove with custom online drum tracks! Drums are recorded in an acoustically-treated room with professional quality microphones and equipment. Mixing is done in ProTools 10 with tasteful and high quality EQ, compression, reverb, and other effects. All musical styles welcomed! Turnaround time is generally 2-4 days. Tracks can be delivered as individual tracks, stems, or a stereo mix. For the assurance of all involved, a basic contract will be signed by both parties before recording.

Some pieces of music just don’t require real drums. In that case we’ll go with programmed drums using high-quality industry standard samples for a wide range of electronic and acoustic sounds. We can all tell when drums were programmed by a non-drummer – please don’t let it come to that! Rates calculated based on project requirements.
Jeff fills in regularly with a few groups, and is available for live performances in the Philadelphia area for drum set and/or percussion. Rates vary depending on the specifics of each gig – send an email and we’ll get started!
Whether it’s in person or online, I offer private lessons by the hour or half-hour. This is not limited to drum set – consider some world percussion and music theory also! Rates: $35/half-hour, $50/hour.
