This 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit is a truly spectacular kit. A wonderful sounding kick drum, five toms and a deep Slingerland Radio King 14" x 7" snare drum, makes this kit a great choice for anyone who wants to re-enact their 70s rock classics. However it is not a one-trick pony as shown by producer Ben Hillier who uses it on most of the records he makes and recently took it on tour with artist Nadine Shah. To get the best out of this kit we enlisted the help of one of the leading alternative rock mix engineers in the world - Alan Moulder. 

The Slingerland kits were first made in 1928 as a response to Ludwigs manufacture of Banjos which Slingerland had been distributing. The Slingerland brand of drums was owned by the family until 1970 and then the Company had multiple owners. Today they are owned by Gibson. Slingerland's most famous line of drums was the Radio Kings and we have included a Radio King snare with this kit. You will soon understand why. The rest of this Slingerland is from the 70s when the Company was having its heyday. It is an amazing sounding kit with it's large drum sizes and extremely versatile.

To get the best out of this kit we brought in one of the best mix engineers in the world - Alan Moulder. Alan is Britain's premier alternative rock producer / engineer working flat out in the UK and USA since the 1980's. Alan has worked on some of rock's most iconic records including Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Led Zeppelin, Jesus & Mary Chain and Foals. Alan won the Brits Producer of the year award in 2014. 

The Slingerland kit was recorded in Miloco's The Pool by Drumdrops engineer Ben Thackeray and mixed in Assault and Battery 1 by Alan.

This Kit can be purchased in different packs:

The Multi-Velocity pack  provides up to 16 velocity steps of each articulation. Each sample included in this pack is a mix of the close microphone, overhead and room mics. This pack comes with patches for Battery, Kontakt 5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Renoise, Reason Refills and the TX16Wx free sampler but can be used in any drum machine or sampler that reads 24 bit WAV files. We have also included guide MIDI Maps for a lot of the popular defaults. The pack also includes 830 MIDI loops. This pack is a great choice for those who want multiple velocity articulations but do not use Kontakt 5.

The Single Hits pack  is the same as our multi-velocity pack but provides three velocities of each articulation. This pack also includes patches for Battery 3, Kontakt 5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Renoise and Reason Refills but if you run any legacy drum machines such as Akai MPC60s this pack may be ideal as the samples come with 16 bit and 24 bit WAV samples. This pack comes loaded with 291 samples.

The One Shot Sample pack  is our cheapest pack and a great pack for those who either just need one sample from each articulation (drum machine users) and no patches, or for customers who want to check out the sound of this kit before purchasing any of the more expensive packs.

Please note Demo Tracks feature additional musical content not included in the pack.
