    I was shooting for the moon and Larry helped me land among the stars. I precisely detailed my desires and goals at the same time allowing him to draw upon his years of experiance to deliver a beautiful masterpiece. With Larry, not only do you get a great percussionist but you get someone who has mastered the art of mic placement and recording techniques.  If intricacy and complexity are required for your track, Larry can deliver...  look no further for all of your percussion needs...

    This has once again been quite an interesting and priceless musical experience. A front row seat to greatness. I am motivated and impressed by the depth of knowledge that HandPercussion displays about his instruments. The good thing is he doesn't just talk. He really knows how to play the instruments. Most important of all, he makes it a duty to understands your music; relates to it, and based on his wealth of experience, gives it a good and accurate diagnosis and provides a much needed cure.

  32. Review By: VoiceOfJacob Oct 7, 2016

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. I will definitely be back for more. These are rich sounds for my project and your superb knowledge and mastery of your craft is a welcome gift to every song.
    Communication is great. It's as if I was with you in the studio. Changes were made as if in real time. The sounds are rich. I love the effects as well. The talking Drum, bells, you name it, I love it all. Thank you so much.

  33. Review By: SchoolBus Sep 26, 2016

    What can I say ... Larry is just awesome! If you want to bring life and finesse to your percussion tracks, he's the man.

  37. Review By: synthessis May 1, 2016

    Larry is just great percussionist! Working with him is wonderful experience. Somehow I got a feeling this wasn't an online collaboration, because he is extremely responsive, creative and attentive and will take an extra mile to make one happy. Very experienced and skilled. He delivers great sounding

  38. Review By: WolfW Apr 16, 2016

    Another incredible experience.
    From pod rattles, frame drums, castanets and shaker sweeps to finger cymbals, chimes, maracas and gongs --
    Larry's attention and professionalism is second to none.
    There’s a real skill, craft and feel to what he does.
    A true artist. 12 STARS
