Session Work

In case you need a drummer…


  • Hannes writes and works out drum lines with you.
  • He records the drums in his own studio.
  • Hannes will re-record and edit drum parts until YOU are 100% satisfied.
  • Finally he delivers the individual drum tracks for each channel recorded.
  • If needed Hannes can also deliver a fully produced stereo mix of the drums, or mixed stems of individual drum sections.
  • He’s gonna store the files on his hard-drive for a later access


The standart rate is 300 € for one song, which includes writing, recording, editing, uploading and file storage – stereo mixes of the drums can be provided on request. This price also includes studio time, engineering and editing. If you consider that usually just renting a decent external recording studio alone will probably cost you 300 bucks per day, Hannes’ rate isn’t so high after all – because besides renting the recording studio you also hire a highly renowned professional drummer. So what are you waiting for? Just drop him a message and see if he’s available for you!
