Bring On The Drums

Getting great drum sounds is more than just "getting a great drum sound". It's about getting a sound that is right for the song. Context is EVERYTHING! Drum recording is our specialty at Ultimate Studios, Inc and we work tirelessly to get the perfect drum tones for each and every artist. That is our promise to YOU!

Drums are a complex instrument to record well and capturing great sounding drum tracks is a combination of recording techniques and performance. The way we record drums at Ultimate Studios, Inc is to go over every detail to ensure the best sounds possible for your songs.

Besides being an accomplished drummer himself, Producer/Engineer Charlie Waymire is extremely adept at working with drummers to get the best possible performance. This is one of the many reasons that Ultimate Studios, Inc has become a home for drummers to record their drum tracks.

Charlie took on the daunting task of building his own drum friendly, affordable drum recording studio where he could create the drum sounds he had always envisioned.

With a fantastic sounding live room, and a Trident 88 console at the helm, Ultimate Studios, Inc has quickly become the “go to” hub for drummers of all styles including Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Ray Luzier (Korn), Josh Freese (Perfect Circle), Benny Rogers II (Mariah Carey), J.R. Robinson (Michael Jackson), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper), Mike Avenaim (Scott Weiland), Jeff Bowders (Paul Gilbert), Greg Garman (Selena Gomez), Nick Adams (David Cook), and many others.

The live room is a spacious 600sq ft and can be completely customized to each and every project, making the room extremely versatile.

Besides having a room made for recording drums, Ultimate Studios, Inc. has a collection of great sounding drums from Pearl, Gretsch, Yamaha, and Ludwig as well has bags full of fantastic sounding Paiste cymbals.
