Native Instruments ABBEY ROAD VINTAGE DRUMMER – vintage percussion for KONTAKT
Native Instruments Company presented ABBEY ROAD VINTAGE DRUMMER – a new tool for KONTAKT, recreating the sound of two percussion installations of the 1940s.

The first set consists of a 26 “Leedy bass drum of the 1940 sample and two volume volumes of the late 1930s that once belonged to the legendary drummer James Blades.” This combination provides an open sound that works well where an unfocused sound with powerful Lower classes.

The classic Slingerland Radio King (1940) was also sampled for this library. A set of 22 “Slingerland bass drum and two volume tomes (13” and 16 “) has a denser sound than the James Blades installation, but it creates a warm timbre that will appeal to all who are looking for a unique, natural sound of drums. To add authenticity to this instrument, both sets were recorded with original calfskin membranes, small 1920s drums and original Trans Stamp and First Stamp Zildjian plates.

VINTAGE DRUMMER was recorded at Abbey Road Studios (London) in the legendary Studio Two, built in 1930 to record a large jazz orchestra. Along with traditional microphones, two rare antique EMI microphones from the 1930s were used to give the VINTAGE DRUMMER a unique timbral color. Users can mix these “vintage channels” with modern equipment in any proportion to obtain a wide range of unique timbres.

For the first time in the ABBEY ROAD Series in VINTAGE DRUMMER there was an opportunity to use for playing percussion brushes. Users receive inspiring brushing techniques along with chopsticks. All articulations are also presented in the groove library, which contains patterns for ragtime, traditional jazz and swing, as well as modern soul, funk and indie styles.
