Episode 019 - Q&A With David Whitworth (Bethel Music)
David Whitworth - Bethel Music
Hey Worship Drummer Fam! I'm so excited to share with you the conversation I had with David Whitworth (Bethel). One of the questions we get asked a lot is, "How do you get that Bethel snare sound?" Then the follow up question is usually something like, "It sounds sooo good! Is it sampled?"
Well, today I am pleased to say that we have answers to all, or at least most, of your questions. We received just about 70 questions from our insta fam and in this episode we attempt to tackle them head-on.
Grab a coffee and hang on, this is gonna be a great one!
"I love playing drums because I can encounter the Lord while doing something I love."
