The Modern Folk Rock Kit - All Samples Pack is based around a 1980s Gretsch Kit owned by drummer Martyn Barker. It is perfect for getting a good modern Folk Rock sound. These samples were recorded and mixed by the legendary Phill Brown (John Martyn, Bob Marley, Rolling Stones, Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin). Like our Vintage Folk Rock Kit, This kit is in fact not just one kit but three kits in one as we have recorded the articulations with sticks, brushes and hotrods. However the main difference (apart from the kit) is the way it was recorded using close mic techniques rather than the five mic technique on the vintage kit.
This Gretsch kit is a 1980s Maple 4416 and it was setup and played by specialist Folk drummer Martyn Barker (Rufus Wainwright, Richard Hawley, Katherine Williams)
For the sound Phill Brown close mic'd this kit as a contrast to the 5 mic process used on the Vintage kit. Mics used were classic drum mics such as Shure SM57s, AKG D112's, Sennheiser MD421's and Coles 4038's as overheads. This kit was set up in the bright live room at Livingston Studio 1. All mirrors and tiles it is one of the best drum rooms still left in London. Phil close mic'd the Kit in a pretty standard way and had two room mic's to give size, energy and openness.
This Gretsch kit consists of a 22" x 16" Kick drum, 10" x 7", 12" x 9" and 13" x 10" Rack Toms and a 16" x 16" Floor Tom. The snares used were a combination of two Ludwig Snares. A Ludwig 400 14" x 5" and Martyn's Ludwig Brass Shell 14" x 6.5". Cymbals used were Zildjian Top Rock 14" Hi-hats, a 20" Rock Ride, an 18" Zildjian Paper Thin Crash and an 18" Plain Paiste Crash. The kit also includes a shaker and tambourine.
The new "All Samples Pack" contains the "Multi-Samples Pack", "The Singles Hits Pack", "The Drum Replacement Pack" and a large quantity of samples from the "Kontakt 5 Pack" (but not the instrument).
