Loopmasters Puncture Kit - Beats Cycling

Unless your Bradley Wiggins not many people can say they ride to work on their work, so the idea of mounting an acoustic Drum Kit on bicycle isn’t a thought that enters most peoples head, however Australian Born David came up with the idea whilst fixing a puncture in London’s Green Park, staring at the upturned frame the thought “my drums could fit on there” hit him and Puncture Kit was born.

Dave’s unusual drum kit is no gimmick, it is a fully functioning bike and how he transports his gear around he simply rocks up on his bike, unloads the drums, flips the bike upside down and bolts them back on ready to play.

Due to the physical size of a bicycle the instruments need to be compact, however the small sizes and quirky percussion pieces happen to create the perfect tones, frequencies and dynamics for the type of sounds found in modern electronic music.

Puncture Kit – Beats Cycling features

  • 1.7 Gb of 24-bit/44.1 kHz samples.
  • 196 Puncture Kit loops, 160 Studio Kit loops at 90-175 bpm.
  • 751 multi velocity drum one shots.
  • 12 Puncture Kit fills, 42 Studio Kit fills.
  • 356 REX2 files.
  • 4 sampler instruments for Kontakt, HALion, EXS24, NN-XT and sfz formats.

The sample pack is available for purchase for £24.95 GBP.
