A fresh excursion into the world of beats. Setting up 3 kits in the studio and letting loose our go to funky Drummer. With 25 years of experience as a pro drummer both in the studio and live you can be sure Ted brings the heat behind the kit. Working around a mixture of classic funk breaks, disco, soul , rock, dub and anything else he could throw down, we have mixed up the tempos and jammed out a massive amount of breaks and beats for this pack (538 to be exact). With tempos ranging across 80, 90, 115, 120 , 130 and 160 BPM you can be sure there’s a groove to fit . Taken from Teds private collection of vintage drums…
The kits used were:
– Firstly we have (the “Big” kit)
– Hayman Drum Kit (circa 1970’s) 5 piece- 22-12-13-16-5.5×14 snare
– This kit has a big heavy “roomy “ sound brash and in your face. Ted uses this kit Live a lot as it has the big room filling sound.
Secondly we have (the “QL” Kit)
– Ludwig Drum Kit (modified 1960’s) 3 piece 16-10-14 with a Gretsch Catalina Snare
– This has a super vibey and tight sound, really nails the funky sound of classic hip hop breaks.
And finally as an extra treat we have a certain amount of the breaks recorded with (the Bonus Kit)
This is Teds family heirloom drum kit and his usual studio set up:
– Ludwing downbeat Drum Kit (1965) 4 piece 20-12-14 with a 5.5×14 supraphonic 500 snare drum.
