Creative drums, percussion, acoustic live loops and sounds for your songs.

I’m a drummer and percussionist based in Hamburg, Germany.

I’d love to help you creating the drum and percussion parts for your song. After finding out what approach you’re looking for, I will take a deep dive into my instrument collection. It consists some of the finest drums out there, like Craviotto’s, A&F drums, AK drums, Vintage Ludwigs, or single bass and snare drums from Sonor, Yamaha, Noble & Coley and others. A variety of amazing Istanbul Agop cymbals, tons of percussion, as well as special treated drums are available right on the go.

The main recording room is dry and focused in sound, so that basically a lot of sound options are possible here. Additionally there is a bigger live room available next door, which sounds fantastic for acoustic instruments like drums.

I do record with Coles 4038, Lauten‘s, Josephson‘s e22s, United 47 FET, as well as the classics (Beta 52, SM 57, MD421, etc.). My recording setup consists of Universal Audio interfaces & preamps, Neve style preamps and others. I track everything with UAD LUNA or Logic and my setup is remote ready with Sessionwire.

I’m looking forward to get in touch with you.

    Marco is very easy to work with super friendly, extremely talented, organized and professional.
    He knows exactly what the song needs and with his exceptional drums skills combined with a
    great choice of drums and mic’s he delivers ready to mix files every time. After more than 10 songs working with him I can say he’s my go to guy.

    I highly recommend Marco.

    Looking forward to the next collaborations!

    Marco recorded all the drums and percussion for my last two albums. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Marco delivers first-class sound quality and tasteful, creative and song-oriented grooves. He has a high level of musicality and pays attention to every little detail. He is a super nice guy and always a pleasure to work with. I can highly recommend him and will definitely work with him again!

    Marco hat für mich im letzten Jahr die drums für ein komplettes von mir produziertes Album eingespielt.
    Da ich Gitarre/ Bass etc. und keyboards Jeff Peacey ( Lake ) zu Hause aufgenommen habe konnte ich praktischer Weise Marco‘s Aufnahmen aus seinem Studio verwenden. Resümee: Erstklassig, hervorragend ! und das in jeder Hinsicht, technisch, musikalisch, menschlich . Unbedingt zu empfehlen !

  4. A: Both do have their own advantages.

  5. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  6. A: I´ve been a professional drummer since almost 25 years now. I have had a lot of experiences in all kinds of different studio, as well as live scenarios. I’ve always been focused on playing the song, always focused on getting the sound, the groove and the feeling. A couple of years ago I started to get more and more into the engineer world, as I wanted to be able to record myself in order to develop my sound more and more.

  7. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  8. A: Get the sound at the source right first, always follow your inspiration and sometimes less is more.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  13. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  14. A: Creating musical drum and percussion parts, that sound great and support the song a hundred percent.

  15. Q: What's your typical work process?

  16. A: First of all, having a conversation with the client to find out exactly what the client is looking for. Then starting the creative part, searching the right sound, starting right at the source: The right instrument in the right tuning and treatment. My goal is to support the song and find the best sound, groove and approach for each song.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

I know every drum very well, so I will have the perfect answer for every situation ready to go. Right next door in the same building there is a bigger live recording room, which sounds fantastic and can be rented additionally on a daily basis. After finding an appointment, live remote sessions via Sessionwire are available. I record everything via my Universal Audio interfaces, working mostly with UAD LUNA.
