Bombastix (for Kontakt/Trigger/Wav)

Bombastix is a sampling of a "holy grail" classic 1976 Ludwig in serious rock dimensions, including a gargantuan 26" kick. The kit has been tracked with 3 distinct snare variations, and two sets of cymbals - hand picked classic Paistes, and modern Sabian AAXs - to give you plenty of options for fitting the kit to your track. Bombastix will fit the bill for modern and classic rock tracks, or anywhere punchy hard hitting is required. It has been mixed for polished but natural tone - good-to-go as-is, or you can easily take the mix further.

The kit was sampled at The Lab studio in Auckland, New Zealand, in a mid-sized tracking room, though a Neve desk, with the usual assortment of high end hand-picked mics, and processed with select outboard pieces.
