Bodo Schopf on SoundBetter

professional session drummer takes your song to the next level

Hi, my name is Bodo Schopf and I am a professional session drummer. I live and work in Italy. I've been playing drums for over 40 years and I have been recording drums and percussion on over 300 Albums and over a thousand trailers and commercial. I'll take your song to the next level.
I play drum sets from Premier, Pearl and Ludwig, great sounding room, I use high quality microphones, you have the option of a dry room up to a big sounding room, but you get different room sounds from me through different microphone positioning. All I need is a stereo rough mix of your song without drums starting from 1.1.1.1, & the BPM. We talk about the vibe and sound you want. Then you send your files via sound better.
After the recording, I'll send you an Mp3 of your song with my drums, then we talk about any changes you may want, once you're happy I'll send you all individual drum tracks, and a stereo drum mix if required.
Some of my credits: Michael Schenker, Eric Burdon, Chris Thompson, Hazel O`Connor, Mick Jackson, Eloy, The Sweet, Wrecia Ford, Chris Norman, Andy Johns, Frank Filipetti, Marc Sway.
Track list of my demo: 0:00-0:45 save yourself, McAuley Schenker Group 0:45-1:30 out in the cold, Hartmann
1:30-2:15 anytime, Mc Auley Schenker Group 2:15-2:45 annihilate, EP,2:45-3:30 Example of my Premier drum,3:30-4:15 Example of my Pearl drum, 4:15-5:00 Example of my Ludwig drum.

    Yet one more stellar drumming track from Mr. Bodo. It's like he gets inside the song and looks at all the moving parts.

    Bodo added his very own unique, flair,swing and groove to one of my songs .
    I recieved loads of drumtracks, which will give a lot of options during mixing.
