Smoker
(for Kontakt/Trigger/Wav)

Smoker is a jazz kit with all the credentials ticked. Based around a toneful '70s Rogers kit with a selection of classic snares and cymbals, Smoker has a warm vintage tone fit for soulful and sparse quartets, hyped up frenetic bebop, bombastic big band, funked up lounge and everything in between. The mix of the kit can be taken from crisp and articulate to smooth and spacious with a few fader adjustments. Played with hand selected maple 7a sticks to bring out deep and subtle tones.

Three snares, two separate pairs of toms (high and medium tension), two kick drums both sampled open and dampened, two pairs of hihats, and three rides give you a heap of options for selecting the tones that work best for your track. Check the kit details below.

The kit was sampled at The Manor through a selection of fine vintage and modern recording pieces, finished with outboard compressors.
