  • Tobe Bryant

    Good shit. Kinda stingy with the amount of sounds though…

  • Jaay Peso

    @Tobe Bryant its just a sample of the full kit. I believe he’s gonna be selling the full kits. I DL’d but havent listened yet. I’ll be sure to come comment when I do. Shouts to the homie Jim Bond.

  • Steeze

    just skimmed through the kit and i gotta say its alright, i probobly wouldnt use any of the sounds tho…thats just my opinion

    • http://www.beabetterproducer.com admin

      All good. Trying to figure out what the people want though, so let me know!

  • llamo

    u know what “instantly” means right?

  • http://www.mrboyd.net Mr Boyd

    Great sounds. They cut through nicely. Good luck JB

    I was a/b’ing them with some sounds I like a lot. They definitely stand up well. Just have to put them to use in a track.

  • Fortified Classik

    Is that your studio?

    • http://www.beabetterproducer.com Jim Bond

      Unfortunately not lol. Thats the B room at Baseline studios in NYC

  • Z. Brazil

    Way too generic…

  • Da R Star

    What I liked the most was the length of the samples, because WAY too many drum kits have sounds that just cut way too early. That’s the most important thing for me, make sure you always let the sound ride.

    • http://www.beabetterproducer.com Jim Bond

      Man… I can’t believe how much of the bullshit floating around has reverb trails that just cut off all crazy…

    I thought they were pretty good for source drums. I’d like to see a really good kick package. I’m always telling peso I need some good kicks but good source kicks are so hard to find. You know the kind that knock at least. Nothing but kicks. Maybe packages entirely devoted to one drum. I’d love to hear some really good quality processed snares, stacked and layered. I purchased mike chav’s drum package and It sounded like He didn’t take his time in making the kit. Not knocking him because he’s super talented and his videos and info are priceless but I paid 80 bucks for his drum and guitar package and i was really disappointed. So I’d say put up some beats where you used the drums in the kit with some tags over it so I can get an idea of what I’m buying. Usually the beat uses all the good drums and the rest suck (as in chav’s kit) so please go hard and do it right if you’re gonna do it. I think what you’re doing is great. I really liked the samples and thought they were good quality. Bless.

    I used the shaker of the kit in my beat in my autoplayer right now (on my Soundclick page). The shaker sort of ended up inspiring the beat. It’s very clean and crispy. The rest of the sounds didnt float my boat…but the shaker shows promise that there will at least be some “gems” in there. Looking forward to trying you out when you get it going. Snares gotta be more on point though…those are the most important. Most kicks sound great if you compress the hell of them, but snares require more detailed attention to become “perfect”. Still can’t wait to hear.

  • Cheez Da Producer

    I downloaded these at work on Friday and forgot abou them until today. I can honestly say I like how these drums. As soon as I got them into my MP I had a track going. I really like the kicks and snare #2. The shakers are good too. I really like the way they cut through. Just finished up my first track with the kit and about to start the next. Nice kit overall though.

  • Brownrice

    I have sampled beautiful, classic, american, hand made, famous namebrand, 7 ply maple Trap Sets, and real wood Afro-Cuban and Brasilian percussian instruments, played by the Masters and used in live performances in the best venues and studios in NY.

    Anyone who likes your noise has never heard or played real drums or percussion. There are a few true musicians out there, that know the real music, and they are the ones that work for the best producers, Like BR…
