"I consider it a privilege that i can collaborate with such a great drummer like Rodney Holmes. Rodney enhances every track with his superb playing and adds a dimension which shapes the music, and brings out the very best of it in every way and is very inspiring .His creative drumming has so many details, that the pulsating groove is enriched with another dimension, which is hard to describe in words. The sound quality of the drum recordings out of his studio is of outstanding quality and equally superb as his playing. All the signals can be very easily processed in the mix. The raw unprocessed recordings of the drums sound already fantastic .It is awesome and I'm very happy that with today's modern recording and communicating technology, such great drum recordings can be done from thousands of miles apart. I'm looking forward to share many more tracks with Rodney."

“The Rodney Holmes signature 22″ Meinl Spectrum ride cymbal has replaced all the ride cymbals in my studio. I record a variety of music genres and the versatility of this cymbal is tremendous. It is able to sound authentic in any context and has been a great addition to my studio drum kit. The ping is dark, yet cuts through mixes perfectly, and it has just the right wash to fill out the sound without being overbearing. The sound is full with rich overtones at all dynamic levels and blends great with the rest of the drum kit. The design allows it to be played hard and powerful for rock, but also with a lighter touch for jazz and other music where you don’t want too much volume or heaviness.”

“On my record SYNC, Rodney transforms into a human metronome. He delivers a jaw dropping performance of overlapping rhythms with precise detail and pocket. He brings an almost human voice to the toms and he attacks the double kick like a computer.
The sound quality of Rodney’s tracks are pure and pristine. His ability to deliver the performance is mind boggling but it takes a drummer to record a drummer properly. He is that drummer. His choice of mics, mic placement, heads and tuning all play a vital role in these tracks. And Nobody knows Rodney’s sound better than Rodney.”
