About us

Today’s technology has come a long way, and is growing every day. Even in music production we use some of the most advanced technologies in the world. But there is 1 thing that technology doesn’t give: Soul. We want to bring soul back in today’s music and replace MIDI by real instruments. This is why we created Essential-Instruments.

We make it possible for music producers to be able to work with live instruments in their productions. We want to connect the people that want to work with live instruments, with people that are able to deliver that.

We deliver custom professional quality recordings of: saxophone, trumpet, guitar, percussion and much much more. All of our recordings are recorded and played by our in-house musicians and engineers.

Essential-Instruments.com is made by Quirijn Vos (trumpet player for Sam Feldt) and Ben Rodenburg (sax player for Bakermat). Besides their passion for the instruments they play, they also developed a big interest for recording and arranging. Throughout the years they’ve made recordings for some of the best DJ’s in the world such as: Sam Feldt, Bakermat, Driftmoon, Quintino, FlicFlac, Federico Scavo and many more.

Rates

Our rates are divided in 3 packages: Basic, Pro and Essential.

Basic Package

The Basic package is for those who are looking for just a live version of their own melodies. We will record 1 single track per instrument. An entry level package to get you started. 

Pro Package

In our Pro package we will record your melody in a triple track fashion and/or in several octaves, which gives the instrument much more spread so it will stand out better in your mix.

Essential Package

Our Essential package is our all-inclusive package. If you are still looking for the right melody, then the Essential package is the best for you. Our team will make the arrangements your track needs.
