Analogue Drums Kingpin Kontakt | 1.15 Gb
Kingpin is a punchy vintage kit combining classic vintage tone and modern snap. This kit can dish out everything from R'n'B and urban grooves through to rock, pop and indy tracks. The kit itself is a 1970s vintage Gretsch USA maple comprised of two rack toms, two floor toms, two kick drum variations and two snares. The drums are accompanied with Bosphorus cymbals for a dark, dry and smooth finish. The kit was sampled in a controlled enclosure for a tight and direct sound. As usual we've used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit, including Neumann mics, a vintage Neve desk, API and Chandler preamps and a roll of 2" tape.
