Gretsch 1960s Round Badge Soul Kit - BFD Pack

Expansion Packs by DrumDrops

The Gretsch 1960s Round Badge Kits are legendary kits. Currently they are one of the most sought after kits from that era. We recorded this kit to capture a certain sound, the sound of the late 60s and early 70s that came out of the Royal Studios in Memphis. Home to legendary producer and founder of Hi Records, Willie Mitchell. This studio was responsible for recording hit after hit from famous Soul Artists such as Al Green and Ann Peebles. We have studied and recreated the drum sound.

Unlike the one microphone, large open room drum sounds coming out of Motown and Stax in the 60’s/early 70’s, Willie Mitchell preferred a small dry room, often using three or four microphones on the drum kit. To capture the same sound we used the perfectly suited dry live room at Miloco’s The Square. The concept behind the mic positioning is unique to this release. We used four mic’s, each placed in carefully selected positions around the kit, so each mic captures the drum kit as a whole, meaning you can use any one mic as your drum sound, or you can blend any or all of the mic’s to create your ideal sound. 

The drum kit was produced and recorded by South London drummer Timmy Rickard who has studied the grooves and sound of this great era. The kit is a classic sounding late 60s kit with wallets placed on the tuned down snares,  a tea towel was used on the floor tom and we have recorded the ride with and without a chain. Also included are four classic vintage snares and the kit is finally topped off with some percussion - congos, a tambourine and shaker.

What Is the BFD Pack?

The BFD Pack is a sampler pack that can be loaded into BFD2 or BFD3. The BFD pack contains the same 16075 samples that our Kontakt 5 Pack offers, meaning that BFD users can now enjoy the same realism and quality that our Kontakt 5 users enjoy. It contains all 60 articulations that our other packs have and the kit has been recorded in up to 80 velocity steps. You have full control over the five microphones that were used to record this kit and once loaded into BFD you can enjoy all the same features that you would expect from any other BFD kit. Once the kit has been recognized by BFD, just simply select your desired kit piece from the list in the same way that you would load any other drum in BFD. We have also included 271 Al Green style MIDI loops with this pack. 

Pack Contents 

Your Pack will contain all the samples for the different kit pieces in separate folders. The different articulations will be situated in separate folder within the kit piece folders. There will also be an image for each kit piece allowing for quick recognition of the drum that you are looking for. These files work exclusively with BFD and you will not be able to use them in any other DAW or software sampler.
