A kit of lovely dusty binaural acoustic drum samples and slightly prepared steel drums… a kind of Tom Waits percussion machine featuring drums in all shapes and sizes.
There are 4 octaves of huge flappy marching band bass drums, ripped and rattly snares and kicks, frame drums, congas, bongos, toms, hi-hats, cymbals, boxes, metal shelving… you name it.
Plus the "prepared" steel drums. These are a neglected set of bass and cello steel pans played with fingers and soft mallets to avoid sounding like proper steel drums (more apocalypse than calypso), the tunings are a bit iffy, but there are plenty of velocity layers per hit for a rusty hang drum like effect.
Great for film scoring. Both kits were recorded binaurally in a great sounding room with long decays with a total of 168MB of samples.
