About the Not many can say that they were there when it happened. Eddie Kramer has been right smack center of it as it happened, making it happen and shaping its very essence with his bare hands for five decades and counting. We're talking about rock – the sound of rock and the deafening impact the craft of engineering, producing and mixing it right has on how it ends up echoing through history. Meet audio visionary Eddie Kramer, the uncrowned king who shaped the sound of the legends that became immortal icons of rock and who in the process became a royalty of rock himself. This is his collection of drums and a true homage to classic rock as we know it.

The Legacy of Rock SDX zones in on Eddie's formative years in the buzzing sixties London scene and continues on through the seventies. It includes five drum kits, each sourced and tailored to mirror a significant era or sound in Kramer's remarkable career. All drums were recorded in Kramer's studio of choice, Studio 1 at AIR in London, and captured through signal chains of vintage microphones as well as handpicked, rare and custom equipment scouted specifically for these sessions.

These drums rock. Take it from the man who only in the first two decades of his career managed to work with The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, record the entire Jimi Hendrix catalog, capture several of Led Zeppelin's most pioneering albums and man the board as the original Woodstock festival was caught on tape. Welcome to a bona fide treasure chest of drum sounds – ready for you to hone, mold and shape to make your own dent in rock history with.

About Eddie Kramer

The brushstrokes of Eddie Kramers's ability to paint with sound has made rock history a glaring palette of color. Not only did he help shape the iconic sound of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Kiss and many more in the sixties and seventies – his ear, touch and craftsmanship has had an immense impact throughout his entire career and to this day. We dare to say that arguably no one in his field has left a more distinct footprint on their path through rock history than he has.

Reading his list of credits from top to bottom sums his collaborations up to more than 750 albums covering all genres, all facets of rock and a myriad of the names anyone would file under 'icons' without thinking twice.

In addition to his deep-rooted passion for audio production, Eddie is also a published author and photographer. Eddie's candid portraits of the rock luminaries he's worked with over the years have been exhibited in some of the world's most prestigious galleries and museums and have become of interest for collectors internationally.

Being frequent lecturer at workshops and seminars, he also likes to educate by sharing his lifelong well of experience from his side of the studio glass with the next generation of audio craftsmen.

Stunning, as expected. Legendary sounds created by a master. If you read the description then you'll know what to expect. And these kits deliver exactly that. I'm a big fan of the 70s era rock. So for me this is nothing short of fantastic! Think Zeppelin, Stones, Hendrix and you are in the ball park. Also included, as usual, are a bunch of very useful and well played grooves. Winner.
