Drumdrops has released the Vintage Funk Kit, a multi-format drum sample library with the sound from the 70s Funk era.
We all love the 70s Funk era, influenced by many and sampled 1000’s of times. Drumdrops present the Vintage Funk Kit allowing you to recreate the drum sound from this era. Recorded with a 70s sound in mind in a nice tight recording room. With the help of Jan Kincaid (Brand New Heavies), we sampled his Sonor HiLite Drum Kit with a mixture of vintage cymbals and bonus percussion. The kit was tuned for to recreate a 70s Funk sound. So dig out your wah wah pedal bring out the platform boots and build some perfect funk tunes with this formidable sounding funk kit.
The Kit was recorded at the Ironworks studio in Brighton, UK by Mike Pelanconi. Mike also recorded our 70s Funk drum track album 70s Funk Drops and set this kit up in a similar fashion.
The Vintage Funk kit was created on a Sonor Hilite Kit tuned for a 70s funk sound. It comprises a 22″ x 14″ Bass Drum, a Sonor Sonorlite 14″ x 6.5″ Snare Drum, a Sonor Horst Link 14″ x 5″ Snare, a 16″ x 16″ Sonor HiLite Floor Tom, and two Hilite Rack Toms, a 12″ x 9″ and a 10″ x 8″. The cymbals used were Zildjian 14″ New Beat Hi-Hats, a Bosphorous Master Series 18″ Crash, an 18″ Sabian HHX Legacy Crash and a 20″ Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride. Percussion for this kit includes cowbell, tambourine and a shaker. We have also included some samples from the digital Clap Trap. Everything you need for a 70s Funk kit.
