In collaboration with Liueria 3G and Musa Drums, I’m proud to present the first sample library recorded from an amazing handmade drum. The drum is completely made with an exotic wood called Padouk that give at the instrument a particular and original sound. Dark and deep like ebony, but fast and clear like Maple. It fits perfect for many different kind of music, but personally I really enjoyed it for rock/funk music. In the video below (and in the following audio track) you can listen how this awesome drum sounds in every instruments and dynamic:
The drum was recorded in Zetafactory, a professional studio recording in Carpi (Mo) where I work as an independent producer. You can check the website on the links below:
I have collected different layers (from 4 to 5) of different dynamics of executions of Kick, Snare, Tom 1, Tom 2, Floor Tom1 and Floor Tom 2, all divided in 2 main categories: Close and Room. Close samples are the sum of close and near microphones on the single instruments, Room samples are the sum of close mic and the room mic.
- Kick was recorded using Audix D2 and Shure Beta 91A
- Snare was recorded with 2 Audio Technica AE3000 and a Shure sm57
- Toms were recorded with Sennheiser 421
- 414 for Overheads
- Blue woodpecker for Room
You can check some quick examples of “how to” use this kind of samples on your drums:
if you don’t like how sounds you mic on spot and you need to replace completely them.
If you think your drum sound need more presence or needs more frequencies in spots instruments.

If you want to write the drum for your demos/loops and you need good samples to use.
