There are a few skills that can put you above the rest.

Drum Recording is one of them.

It can be very hard, and not many want to truly master the craft.

In fact, many will set up drum mics as a way of triggering drum samples, with no intention of keeping the sound of the real drums.

Why not just get electronic drums to trigger your samples?

And some have done exactly this. There is a fantastic drummer in Australia that records heavy metal grooves and drum fills on an electronic kit. People buy his MIDI tracks to fill in with their own samples.

I don't mind samples when they are blended in to make a larger than life sound, but I believe there should still a foundation of a great drum sound from real drums and cymbals.

Recording drums is becoming a lost art.

Because drum recording is hard and it takes work.

But what if you could master it? What if you were the best in your area for recording drums?

That's why I developed a course that teaches you how to master the art of drum recording.

I start with the basics, and teach you a method that is my no-fail approach. Then I teach you about drum tuning, drum muffling, room acoustics, close mics, and everything else that it takes to master the art of drum recording.

You may know me from YouTube where I show one or two techniques, but this course is the entire concept. The whole picture. I can only give a small piece during a 10 or 15 minute YouTube video.
