drum equipment


The Cherry Pit recording studio is set up to record drums for your project.

Located in the heart of Niagara on Jim Casson's cherry farm, The Cherry Pit is a virtual studio and can record and send drum tracks to anywhere in the world.

Jim can record drum tracks for your project and then send them to you for your CD or demo at a fraction of the cost of renting a high end studio and engineer.

Some artists who have already used The Cherry Pit for their recordings are Dave Rave, Heather Dale, Angela Siracusa, Badger Music and Jim's CD "Dark Orchard" (which was nominated for a Niagara Music Award).


Here's a sampling of projects from our first year of operation, 2013.

Here is a track recorded at the Cherry Pit from "The Mighty Duck Blues Band - Duck Soup" album. This song was nominated for "Song Of The Year" at the 2017 Niagara Music Awards.

Here are some songs recorded at The Cherry Pit from the 2nd Dark Orchard CD - "Blossom".

Here is Max J Casson recording a song by Pierce the Veil
