Soft Drums

Soft Drums


I like drums. Drums are loud.

I recorded these soft drum samples for when I want the sound of traditional drums but need them to fit alongside and underneath quiet music. The kit is a 1960’s Ludwig covered with blankets and hit with Promark Broomsticks, resulting in a brushy vibe with muted drum tones. Great for adding percussive subdivisions that take up a small amount sonic real estate.

I had always had problems when I for example had an intimate piano sound and still needed some percussion. And every drumkit I used just tear the whole mix apart. This lovely thing solved the problem and I don’t thing how I could live without it!

This is so amazing, completely useable in a folk or chill context. GREAT sounding kit!

These are some of the most unique drum kit samples I’ve used with loads of character. I particularly like them with the SoundToys Little Alter Boy pitched down.
