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 are welcomed and encouraged! Turnaround time is generally 2-4 days. The final product can be delivered as individual tracks, stems, or a stereo mix (or any combination thereof). For the assurance of all involved, a basic contract will be signed by both parties before recording.

Here is one such piece for 5-octave marimba, commissioned by Steve Weiss Music to showcase the gorgeous low frequencies thanks to the Basso Bravo Resonators on the Marimba One “Izzy”! Enjoy “Episode II”, written by yours truly, performed by Dave Stockton:

Drum Programming:

Some pieces of music just don’t require real drumsIn 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 each project’s individual requirements.

Live Performance:

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 let’s get started!
