FXpansion releases BFD2 JEX Expansion Kit
FXpansion has released JEX, the first Expansion Kit for BFD2.
John Emrich’s XDrum kit (JEX) features a high-end, custom hand-made kit from XDrum’s Xotica line.
The drums are 6-ply Keller Maple shells with an additional ply of Sapeli Pommele running vertically, resulting in excellent, focused low-end. The finish is hand-applied tung oil, which leads to a very open tone.
BFD2 JEX Expansion Kit features
- Low-cost expansion kit for BFD2 featuring custom X-Drums kick and toms.
- Kick recorded with 2 beater types.
- Toms recorded with sticks, mallets, brushes, hotrods.
- Kick features Yamaha SubKick mic for extreme low end.
- Bonus snare from Jazz & Funk (Ludwig SuperSensitive).
BFD2 JEX Expansion Kit is available as a download from the FXpansion web shop for £25 GBP / 35 EUR / $50 USD. BFD2 JEX is £15 GBP / 20 EUR, $30 USD for all registered BFD2 owners who also have either one or more of the following expansion packs registered to their user account: BFD Jazz & Funk, BFD Percussion, or BFD2 B.O.M.B.
