Pop, baby! This sample pack features drummer/producer Ben Jackson, and was recorded at Pentavarit in The Wilson Room using all of my favorite tools and goodies.

These samples are super versatile, but primarily intended for use in pop, rock, and country. Equally cool for building your own parts or for augmenting your recorded tracks.

The kit is a Gretsch USA Custom 22/13/16 with a 5" Black Beauty snare and Paiste cymbals.

The sounds are modern and punchy with lots of character. Samples are multi-velocity and organized into three versions:

CLOSE: These are just the close mics.
FULL: These are close mics + overheads + rooms.
BIG: These are close mics + overheads + rooms + AMS nonlin reverb and a touch of AKG BX10 spring reverb.

Here is a single velocity of kick and snare in all 3 versions:
