The Yamaha Hybrid Kit was built to be given away in a Computer Music Magazine Recording Special magazine, however customers loved it so much that Drumdrops have built it into a Kontakt pack.
The original kit is owned by producer Ben Hillier (Depeche Mode, Nadine Shah, Graham Coxon) and can be found in Miloco’s Pool Studio in London. It has been used by loads of artists in the studio and is a current favourite of producer Stephen Street. The kit works well at different tuning pitches, but its big size and its Ludwig 402 snare makes it suitable for deeper rock orientated tracks or ballads or even pop tracks. Combined with the Drumdrops Kontakt interface you can change the sound of the kit to suit almost any drum track.
The kit comprises a large 24” bass drum, a wonderfully deep 18” floor tom and a 14” rack tom. The snare is a Ludwig 402 14” x 6.5”. The cymbals used were Zildjian Dark 13” Hi-Hats, a Zildjian Constantinople 22” Medium Ride and two Zildjian Crashes - an 18” Constantinople Medium Light Crash and a huge 20” Zildjian Oriental Crash Of Doom.
The kit was recorded by resident Drumdrops engineer Ben Thackeray and mixed by grammy winning mix engineer Matt Lawrence. The drummer was Adam Falkner, a busy UK session drummer and musical director, whose recent highlights have included touring and recording with Dido, Babyshambles, Amy Macdonald, and One Eskimo.
