“I’ve had the great pleasure of seeing and hearing Dirk play in various bands and projects, and his drumming never ceases to amaze me. He obviously has a great deal of technical facility, speed, and chops, but his playing is also so clean and groovy. On the business end, Dirk is incredibly professional and reliable. I know that I can always count on him whether it’s clinics, a promotional video, or getting quotes and feedback on a new Tama product.”


Aaron Vishria, Head A&R at Tama USA


“Dirk is absolutely one of the best, quickest and most professional drummers we’ve ever worked with. On top of that, he’s a really nice and easy-going guy, which is equally as important!”


Nils Eriksson, Toontrack Producer & Editor


“Dirk is such an amazing drummer to work with. Very few drummers can do what he does while still sounding groovy! No need to save the day with Beat Detective, and his steady hard-hitting technique makes his drums very easy to mix!”


Jens Bogren, Producer (Devin Townsend, Opeth, Amon Amarth)


“Dirk Verbeuren saves you hours/days/bottles of editing with his professional attitude towards nailing down perfect chaos. He is for sure one of the best drummers I´ve ever worked with. Having him behind the drums guarantees a top quality result.”


Daniel Bergstrand, Producer (In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, Meshuggah)


“Working with Dirk Verbeuren as a session drummer is a joy for any music producer. He has some of the most even playing I’ve ever encountered and there really is no limit to what he can or can’t play. He’s easy to work with and has great ideas, which makes producing that much easier. Dirk is simply amazing.”


Peter Wichers, Producer & Soilwork Guitarist


“In my opinion, Dirk is one of the absolute best metal drummers of this world. Sure, he’s fast as hell, but this guy’s got the groove too!”


Fredrik Thordendal, Meshuggah Guitarist & Toontrack Co-Founder
