THE ARTIST | JOEL CAMERON

Joel's contribution to our library is nothing short of extraordinary. He has generously shared his collection of vintage drums, including renowned brands like Ludwig, Tama, Pearl, and more. What sets Joel apart is his extensive knowledge of recording techniques, and he has graciously loaned us a selection of vintage preamps from Neve and API, along with his custom-built preamps from the Rascal Audio product line. Beyond his exceptional gear collection, Joel's skills as a drummer, recording engineer, and producer shine through in every sample.
