Drumdrops releases "Rogers Big R Dub Kit" for BFD with a special offer (free for first 15)

Drumdrops has released the Rogers Big R Dub Kit for BFD on Wednesday the 14th of October at 4pm (BST UK time) with a special offer. Customers who come to the Drumdrops site will have a chance to pick up the pack for free. The first 15 packs will be free, the next 20 will be £15.00, the next 50 £20.00, the next 50 will be £25.00 and then it will return to the retail price of £35.00.

The Rogers Big R Dub Kit is a dub kit. The kit comprises a 24" x 14" Bass Drum, a Ludwig Black Magic 14" x 6.5" Snare Drum, a Ludwig Acrolite 14" x 5" Snare Drum, a huge 18" x 16" Floor Tom, and two Rack Toms, a 14" x 10" and a 13" x 8". The cymbals used were 15" Zildjian A Sweet Hi-Hats and a 17" A Custom Crash. Percussion for this kit includes a 14" Timbale drum and a set of Bongos. Also included is some Electronic Percussion using a Boss PC-2 Percussion Synthesizer.

The kit was recorded and mixed by UK producer, musician and engineer Mike 'Prince Fatty' Pelanconi. The drummer used was reggae specialist Horseman. His beats have backed the likes of Wailing Souls, Sugar Minot, Max Romeo, Barrington Levy, John Holt, Big Youth, Gregory Isaacs and many more.

The recording and mixing took place in Miloco's The Ironworks in Brighton, UK. At the centre of the Control Room can be found a rare vintage 1970s BBC console. The outboard racks are full of great gear including a Lang PEQ-2 EQ, a Langevin EQ258A EQ, and plenty of dub reverbs. All of the drums were recorded without compression. The Kick drum used an external EQ - The Lang PEQ - 2A. All other EQ'ing was handled by Mike's collection of API 550's. Mike chose not to record any room microphones for this kit as he wanted a tight, dry Reggae sound.

The "BFD pack" has been been built as an expansion pack for FXPansion's BFD3, BFD Eco and BFD2. The pack comes with 39 articulations which have been recorded up to eighty velocity steps and in total it contains 4951 samples. This kit also includes 16 groove palettes. These are split into 359 4-bar dub loops.

Customers will need to be registered on the Drumdrops site to take advantage of this offer. Once registered head over to the buy kit page and wait for 4pm (BST UK time). Please be warned the free ones go in the blink of a computer click.
