The studio

Soundtrade Studios


Recorded clean and clear in the large room at Soundtrade Studios in Stockholm, famed for its sheer size and great acoustics, with a range of additional presets which can be set to get this kit sounding exactly how you like. Clean and tight and sitting neatly in the pocket, or tweaked out and distorted to leave your listeners dazed and confused. Room tone captured on Neumann and Gefell mics in the live room can be blended in separately, allowing your sound to go from crisp and clean, to a full on stadium ambiance Led Zep would be proud of.

Vintage Kit - Ludwig Blue Oyster

Do you remember the first time you listened to Led Zeppelin? For most of us it's a special musical moment, and the sound was bashed firmly and indelibly into our memories by the thunderous, raucous, booming drums of John Bonham, kicking triplets and thumping tom-tom fills on a big Ludwig drum kit like a man possessed. This ADpak is based on that memory.

It comes complete with a combination of Paiste, Sabian and Zildjian cymbals, a tambourine and cowbell, a massive 26 inch kick drum (with a smaller 22x16 just in case), and 13, 14, 16, and 18" toms all coated and tuned up specially to give you the authentic sound of the late '60s. Load it up and release your inner Animal...Louder! Louder!!!!
