Plugin Boutique has announced an exclusive promotion on the Dhol Drum virtual instrument library by Soundiron.

The traditional Indian dhol is a closed shell barrel-shaped drum with a curvature to the body. It is classically played as an accompanying instrument in traditional Punjabi Bhangra, and the religious music of Sufism.

For our solo dhol Indian percussion library, we captured a pair of full-sized drums, one larger and one smaller. Our Dhol Drum library contains 5,147 samples and more than 110 distinct articulations, played with sticks, mallets, brushes, hands, fingers, palms and more. Each was recorded in extraordinary detail up close in our studio.

We deep sampled two professional Punjabi Dhol Drums for this library, each with distinct characteristics and tuning. These drums have goat skin bass heads and synthetic maylar treble heads. The bass head is tuned with a single heavy nylon rope, wound around the drum through steel rings. The treble head is tuned with a series of steel lugs and rods, typical of most modern percussion.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 5.1 or higher, Dhol Drum is priced $44.25 USD instead of $59 USD until January 31st, 2022.
