Yurt Rock has announced the release of a new sample pack that features an extensive collection of Zeppelin-influenced drums. Bonhamology Vol. 1 by George Fludas contains 8 drum sessions recorded at Steve Albini’s legendary Electrical Audio studio in Chicago.
The pack brings the sounds of a vintage 1971 Ludwig Maple Thermogloss drum kit, along with a combination of late ’60s Paiste 2002 and Big Beat Cymbals, all mirroring the exact same sizes as Bonham’s set up.
It wasn’t just the feel of John Bonham’s playing that made him one of the most iconic drummers in rock history, but also his sound. By utilizing a combination of oversized Ludwig drums and large Paiste cymbals, Bonham achieved a sound that was bigger and more powerful than any drummer before him.
To pay tribute to Bonham’s undeniable influence on modern music, we partnered with Chicago-based drummer extraordinaire and Bonham aficionado, George Fludas, to produce Bonhamology Vol 1. This extensive drum library features pristinely recorded and mixed drum samples, loops, and even full, unedited takes. Looking for more sonic control? Select The Multitrack option and get instant access to 16 channels of audio, allowing you to mix every drum performance to your own taste.
The royalty free collection is on sale at an introductory limited time discount, starting from $39 USD (regular $49 USD).
