The Sound

The grunge drum samples pack was recorded during an online session we did for an artist covering a well-known song from the genre. We put together a hybrid kit and applied some pretty extreme tunings to get the sound just right.

The key to the sound was pitching-down the kick and toms, pitching-up the snare, then hitting the (Neve 1073) preamps pretty hard for some added harmonics. The kit sounds deep and crunchy with a ringing snare that will cut through a mix.

The Kit

“Grunge Kit” was recorded using our DW Collectors series kit, a Yamaha 9000 birch floor tom, Pearl free-floating brass snare, and Zildjian cymbals:

  • DW Collectors Series – 22×18″ Kick, 12/14” Toms
  • Yamaha 5000 16″ Floor Tom
  • 14×6.5″ Pearl Fully-Floating Brass Snare
  • 14” A Custom Fast Crash, 18” A Custom Fast Crash, 22” K Dark Ride

The Patches

We have created sampler patches for the grunge drum samples that “map” the  voices and velocities to different keyboard note events.

  1. Paul Sanderson (verified owner)

    Strangely, with the unbelievable amount of drum samples out there, little exists in the way of decent rock genre acoustic kits for samplers such as the EXS24 format. I’ve searched for weeks and having only found a handful I grabbed the Grunge Kit after a short listen. It’s a good kit to have in my arsenal for the styles I do and at this price it seemed almost crazy not to buy it. I’m glad I did.
