The Dan's House Vintage Drums collection features 10 classic snare drums, 4 rack toms, 5 floor toms, and 6 bass drums. The samples were recorded with top-shelf gear and carefully mixed to give you all the detail and impact we heard live in the studio the day we recorded them. The collection takes full advantage of Drumagog's rich multisample capabilities. This outstanding CD includes vintage drums by Gretsch, Rogers, Slingerland, Radio King, Pearl, Yamaha, Leedy, Ludwig and Eames, dating from the '20s through the '80s, including a full 1967 Ludwig Club Date kit!
Vintage Neve 1272 preamps and an Apogee PSX 100 analog-to-digital converter in were used in the signal chain, so the GOG files are true-to-life samples of these great-sounding, hard to find drums!
Although these drums are collector's items, they don't spend their lives on the shelf. They're actively used at gigs and in the studio. (The '67 Ludwig kit was just used for tracking some of Paul Simon's stuff in 2003.) These are working instruments!
Each snare is represented on the collection with a total of 138 samples, covering a wide of range of sounds, from tight and muted to open and ringy, whisper quiet to hard rim shots, crossticks to brushes, and more.
No processing was used on the samples - no eq, reverb, compression, or gating. What you hear is just the sound of the drum recorded with great gear, allowed to decay fully and naturally.
