David Valdés

Get in touch with me so we can work together.

Freelance timpanist and percussionist

I play regularly with Spanish and European ensembles (symphony orchestras, chamber groups and early music ensembles).

Session musician

I participate in recording sessions in many studios and I can do it on your next record.

Online recording

I am the owner of a studio assorted with the best gear (instruments, microphones, preamps and converters) and I record online for producers in Spain, Argentina and the USA.


Thanks to the experience obtained in my own studio I work as a drumset and percussion producer. Sound design, recreation of styles, choice of instruments and drum heads, tunning, choice of microphones, preamps and recording techniques, edition, arrangements, etc. I can help you with your recordings.

Drum doctor/Drumtech

I make, repair and modify percussion instruments. I have repaired instruments belonging to the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, the Oviedo Filarmonía, the Orquesta de Cámara de Siero and the Banda Ciudad de Oviedo. I make and repair sticks and mallets and I also prepare, tune and optimize percussion instruments for both live and studio.

Percussion rental

I am the owner of an extensive collection of percussion instruments, some of them very rare and hard to find. They have been rented by the following: Orquesta Sinfónica de Gijón, Orquesta Clásica de Asturias, Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, Capella della Pietà de´Turchini, Forma Antiqva, Parténope Producciones, Sinfonietta Concertante, Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theater, Agencia Camera, International Opera Studio, Teatro Jovellanos, Orquesta Filarmónica de España, Orquesta Universitaria de Oviedo, Asturcón Estudios, Fundación Princesa de Asturias, Orquesta Clásica de Arriondas, Ópera de Oviedo, Balthasar Neumann Ensemble, Akademie für Alte Musik, Grey Giant, Danny Daniel…
