HotRod Grooves in 6/8 – Ballad Drum Loops Pack

Here’s some demonstrations using only the stereo WAV 6/8 drum loops pack.
NO additional editing or effects were used…

LUSCIOUS 6/8 Hotrod grooves. Solo acoustic? Folk? Rock Ballad? Or something completely different…

11 minutes, 39 seconds of laid back beats, loose, jangly drum loops. Played with hotrods. The 6/8 hotrod drum loops in this pack are played at 75, 85, 95, and 105 BPM tempos. They are all in 6/8 time signature. This covers a fair range of suitable different styles and genres.

Like everything we produce at The Beat Shed, we hope you find this Loop Pack inspiring, and that you find beats you can use in your songs and recordings.

WTF are Hotrods?

Hotrods are like a cross between sticks and brushes. Bunches of wooden kebab skewers basically. They make a unique sound as the small sticks brush the drum heads, and make a splashy sound on cymbals.

A hotrod on a ride cymbal is a really lovely thing – percussive with a quick attack and yet ringing at the same time.

Dave Grohl is partly responsible for the popularity of hotrods. He used them on the classic MTV Nirvana Unplugged recordings. They helped him feel that he was playing with drumsticks, whilst keeping his playing volume down during the acoustic session.

The Formats

As well as the WAV stereo mixes and 24bit multi-tracks, we also produced the 6/8 drum loops in the REX, Apple Loops, and Stylus RMX formats.


These files are variable tempo versions of the stereo mixes. They have been carefully sliced and tested to stretch to the tempo of your project. These 3 formats cover just about any software or workstation you may be using.

For more technical information, and to check which format to use with your system, visit the formats page.

    I recently purchased a 6/8 loop pack and it’s excellent value for money- highly recommended. The online store transaction and downloads are fast – high quality loops in your DAW within minutes and a clear file structure to navigate and find individual loops. Enjoy!

    Killer loops! I’m loving them so far. They sound very nice and the drummer sounds nice and tight. I love 6/8 groove and i love hotrod sticks. Thank you.
