Drums that are not nice and easy, but nice and rough! Samples of drums made by Zygmunt Szpaderski in a one-man workshop in Poland decades ago, plus an even larger floor tom made from an Estonian-made RMIF kick drum, and some nice modern cymbals. While we paid the equivalent of $111.68 for the Szpaderski kit with hardware, stands and cymbals, the Sabian ride cost more than four times as much, and we don't care - they are a good match sonically. We also don't care that it's ridiculous to spend almost 100 hours recording and editing samples of drums this cheap, when we could just as easily have avoided spending any money at all and borrowed a much more expensive kit from a drummer friend. This way was a lot more interesting. It all adds up to a kit that can do a lot of things from indie pop to lo-fi hip-hop and all-out weirdness.

Samples with sticks, brushes and mallets, snare also recorded with a tambourine on top of it and a small tom on top of it, rim clicks and shell clicks, stirs on both the snare and floor tom, a stack of cheap cymbals, mechanical noises... this kit has a lot of features, many of which you can't get elsewhere. Over 4400 samples adding up to 2.3 GB. Where else are you gonna get samples of overgrown Soviet Bloc drums with this kind of detail?
