Contemporary Vintage Drums

Some classic drum kits with a modern approach to production.

Contemporary Vintage Drums features 3 full drum kits sampled from:

  • a Ludwig “Beatles” tribute kit (stick)
  • a Ludwig “Beatles” tribute kit (brush)
  • a 1977 Gretsch Concert Rock kit (stick)

The kits come with 3 sets of cymbals sampled from a Zildjian A series set (stick and brush) and  and UFIP set (stick) and 2 additional Ride Cymbals (Turkish and UFIP) and 7 snares overall (Ludwig, Gretsch, Pearl and Tama).

These kits have set the bar for classic drum sounds due to the large number of classic hits from the mid sixties and until the beginning of the eighties that were recorded using them.

Our production concept was to give users access to these classic kits, but with a more modern approach to sound production and mic choice. This approach guarantees fresh new sounds out of these drums.
