Drumdrops has announced it is releasing the Rogers Big R Dub Kit BFD Pack on Wednesday 14th October at 4pm BST.
The Rogers Big R Dub Kit is the ultimate dub kit. Sampled by reggae drummer Horseman and recorded and mixed by Mike Pelanconi (aka Prince Fatty) this is a seriously good sounding kit.
Recorded at Prince Fatty’s studio The Ironworks in Brighton we used a 60s Rogers Big R Kit with a large 24” kick drum, a Ludwig Black Magic snare and a Ludwig Acrolite Snare. The kit has no ride cymbal (as they are not commonly used in dub kits) but comes with Timbales, Bongos and some Electronic Percussion using a Boss PC-2.
The recording took place in the Ironworks studio in Brighton. The drums were recorded through a vintage BBC class A console using a combination of classic ribbons, condensers and Dynamics. To get the tight dub sound the kit was recorded without room mics.
The BFD pack of the Rogers Big R Dub Kit is compatible with BFD3, BFD Eco and BFD2.
BFD users can utilize all the great features that come with BFD to get the best out of this kit and add it to their BFD libraries. This kit also contains 16 dub groove palettes split into 359 loops.
The first 15 packs will be free, the next 20 will be £15 GBP, the next 50 £20 GBP, the next 50 will be £25 GBP and then it will return to the retail price of £35 GBP. Customers will need to have a Drumdrops account to purchase the kit. Login and head to the Buy Kit page. The free kits go in a second so you have to be quick.
