THE DRUM DUNGEON
The DD Studio mainly focuses on good sounding Drum recordings, with a fine selection of top Mics and pre amps.
Mark Cross, a world class drummer, who has worked with bands like The Scorpions, Firewind, Helloween, Kingdom Come, Ian Gillan, Tank, Joe Lynn Turner and Tainted Nation is the brainchild behind the Studio.
“The Drum Dungeon was an idea a few years ago and I kept the name particularly for drum recordings, sound creation and productions. Since the Studio now offers more than just drum recordings, the “DD” was added as a “department” besides the other activities.
To be honest, until this beautiful facility had been found, all there was before, felt like crawling out from the dungeons and now we´ve got daylight!! However the name is so cool and had to be used!” (Big smile!!)
As a busy drummer, live and in the studio, Mark offers his drum services to the industry, may it be for a record label, a producer, a band or a solo artist.
Everyone is welcome to record here, you can bring along your own engineer, producer or work with our team and use Mark´s skills to get the sound you want.
Nothing is impossible, as an old friend always used to say.
“The internet has made instant communication possible, as well as rapid file sharing to quickly complete productions. We can exchange files via our ftp servers and deliver edited and great sounding drums for you.
You don’t have to be a famous Musician to work with famous Musicians, I am very keen to explore and share every opportunity with you.”
Mark’s longtime experience as a recording and touring artist, as well as a recording seminar tutor for SAE allows him to apply top playing, recording and mixing skills and bring your production to a world class level. In the past he has also worked with producers like Charlie Bauerfeind (Helloween), Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore), Kip Winger, Tommy Hansen and Kostas Kalimeris (Black Rock Studios).
