Platinum Drum Andy Johns Classic Drums (BFD)

Andy Johns Classic Drums (BFD)

Platinum Samples’ Andy Johns Classic Drums BFD Compatible Expansion Pack is an amazing 65 GB library of drums played by Andy Johns.

Recorded in one of LA’s greatest rock drum rooms using a classic Neve 80 series console and through the electronics of a Studer 800 24 track tape machine, the Classic Drums expansion pack truly demonstrates why Andy has achieved legendary status. Using no compression and only the console preamps and EQ’s, and with each drum meticulously tuned by Andy himself — the drums recorded in the Classic Drums expansion pack exhibit why the albums Andy has engineered and produced have sold over 150 million copies.

Andy didn’t use preassembled kits, but rather chose his favourite pieces to create different drum kits for his expansion pack. Check here for the kit listing.
