Hello and thank you for enquiring about getting some fantastic drums for your project! Below is all the information you need about my rates and processes. Hopefully I have covered everything here, but if you have any questions at all, please give me a shout!
My rate is $160/£120 per song, regardless of track length etc (seems an easier and fairer way to do it), this is all inclusive, so drums, percussion, overdubs, edits (if needed).
I ask for a 50% deposit of $80/£60 to secure the booking, with the balance to be paid only once you are happy and everything is signed off.
To get started please send a deposit via PayPal using the link below or via BACS to:
Mr Joseph E Montague 60818093 601455 Natwest (UK only)
Once you have sent the deposit please fill out the booking form and upload your tracks using the link below and I will be in touch very shortly to arrange a call and get the session booked in!
Fill in the form below, with details for the song(s) and I will email you to book in a day/time for a phone call, which will usually be a day or two before I record the session.
Communication is key during this process, so it’s important to talk through exactly what you want from the drums on the song. When we talk I will have learned the song and listened through the references, and I will usually have some ideas for the drums for us to discuss too. It’s also just great to say ‘Hey’ and have a bit of a chin wag if we’re making music together!
I will then record the drums, and email you an mp3 of the song along with the new drums, as well as a stereo WAV of just the drums for approval. We can discuss and repeat this process until you are happy that the drums are sounding fantastic. Upon receipt of the remaining balance I will send you the multi-tracks via a Dropbox folder for you to download.
Once the process is complete you will receive a full set of multi-tracks, as well as my stereo drum mix. This way every option will be available to you, whether you want to use my drum mix, mix your own, or send them off to your mix engineer.
The stems will sound great as soon as you pull them in to the project. I am a firm believer of getting it right on the way in, so have a significant collection of high quality microphones and outboard, including AKG D19, Coles 4038, Reslo RB-1s, Neve 1073s, API 512 and REDD.47 valve preamps, DBX compressors, Pultec EQ, Revox A77 (Studer) tape machine and a vintage analogue Alice 828 Mk II mixing console.
My passion is helping you find the perfect drum part for your song, I love the whole process, from hearing the song for the first time, discussing parts and sounds, to delivering a take that makes you grin from ear to ear. Ultimately I want you to be completely buzzing about your new drums, and I will bend over backwards to make sure that happens!
