Josh Freese At Ultimate Rhythm Studios!

A new project featuring members of the band Tomorrows Bad Seeds has been tracking drums at URS for their upcoming album. They’re using some pretty awesome drummers and last week was Josh Freese! Besides being a phenomenal drummer he’s one heck of a story teller!

 

 

“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Sean, Matt and Michael. These guys are really talented! They’ve written some really cool tunes and are utilizing some pretty amazing drummers for the record. Josh was absolutely amazing. You can hear in every note that he’s just having a blast!” says Engineer Charlie Waymire.

Let’s have a look at the set up for the day.

Ross Garfield from Drum Doctors brought Josh’s DW kit with a full assortment of Paiste Cymbals.
