What You Get 

The Custom & Vintage SDX delivers 6 Kicks, 20 Snares, 7 Hats, 20 Toms, 11 Rides, 18 cymbals and 1 Count in Sticks sound. The complete Kits in this SDX are  Noble & Cooley Star Series, Camco Oaklawn, Slingerland Studio King, Ludwig Keystone Drum Set and Gretsch Round Badge Drum Set. The complete installation of the Custom & Vintage will take roughly 12GB Space on your hard drive, but the installer can also slim the package down if you don’t need all the tools included. 
Now Toontrack always ads a set of MIDI files and so you also get a nice set of MIDI files that fits the Custom & Vintage concept to use for your music. 

Working with Custom and Vintage

The GUI in Superior Drummer 2 is no news and there is no difference when loading the Custom & Vintage SDX. The mix layout of Custom and vintage has direct mic channels, Overhead, Ambience , Mono room and Comp room. The Kick has both in and Out channels and the Snare comes with Top and Bottom channels.

When it comes to Working with Custom & Vintage It follows the Superior drummer 2 legacy delivering a huge variety of alternative hits and velocity layers giving the user complete control of the drums without any machine gun effects. 
And as with all Superior Drummer  library’s there is a huge headroom for additional tweaking.

So How Does It Sound? 

The Custom & Vintage SDX delivers what its supposed to, that classic rock sound we all know from artists like Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Paul McCartney, Rush and Frank Zappa. 

This SDX rely is state of the art for anyone looking for a classic drum sound.

To show you how the Custom & Vintage sounds I have created a little sample video showing you each of the five Kits loaded with no Effects. I also include a lite tweaked Sample that I made to show you how it sounds with some tweaking.


I am impressed, The custom & Vintage is a great expansion for Superior Drummer 2, it has that classic feeling to it that just makes me smile.
If you are looking for a really sweet expansion to your Superior drummer 2 library, and you are not into hardcore metal I truly recommend you to check the Custom & Vintage SDX out.


  • Great classic sound
  • Huge variety of kit pieces
  • 4 Toms!


  • None

The Verdict

Custom & Vintage is a SDX I can recommend with all my heart as it does not only sound awesome, it comes loaded with different kit pieces so you have a huge variety to work with and to top things of…… 4 TOMS!!
