This drum kit has been sitting around taking up space for too long! I bought it during the COVID lockdowns for $100 to learn a little more about drum tuning but, not being a drummer, I have little use for it now. 🙂 I have built this pack as a record of the kit before its disposal takes place.
There are three round-robins and three velocities of most components. There’s an additional snare hit group with a tea towel draped over the drum. I recorded most of the kit using SM57 microphones (including the cymbals, as they were pretty harsh). For the snare, I used two mics, a top and bottom (with the phase flipped), both SM57s. I used an AKG D112 inside the kick, and an OPR U47 FET outside, and blended them. All tracks were recorded through Universal Audio API Unison preamps and processed with a little EQ, compression and saturation. The full kit has been stereo-imaged from the audience perspective.

Nice Sounding Kit
Works for the Garage rock, Indie, Shoegaze stuff I'm writing at the moment. As is often the case, the mapping doesn't match any of the other kits I have, so I may eventually dig in to remap it.
