Big Mono
(for Kontakt/Battery/EXS24/Wav)

Big Mono is a roomy rendition of a lovable vintage Ludwig kit with a Rogers Dynasonic snare, classic Zildjians, and a Sabian ride for good luck. Recorded in mono using a decca-tree configuration, this kit sounds organic and retro with plenty of space.

Tracked through a vintage Neve console to a nice thick roll of tape.
