The story

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.

  • A drum sound I never had but now always use

    This kit is recorded beautifully. I find myself using it in conjunction with other drums sounds or just plainly by itself almost any time I make a beat these days.

  • Just Great

    I don't often get exited about a drum sample set. But this one really hits the spot. Just love it. It's perfect.
