DoubleDog Recording Studio

About

Yamaha Beech Custom Absolute

Drums and More...

Doubledog Recording is primarily the private recording studio of Mike Kosacek.   I am available to record drum tracks through StudioDrumTracks.  From time to time I also work on a few additional projects with other bands or clients -- see my recent client list for more info.  

A Fantastic Live Room

Doubledog Recording has a great sounding room for recording drum tracks (it's 25' x 19' with vaulted ceilings that are 15' at the peak), however it also serves as a versatile tracking and mixing room too.  I have worked with local artists as well as those around the world where I have provided the drum tracks or where I have recorded, produced, mixed and mastered complete projects.
