"Drumdrops have really managed to capture the essence and vibe of the kits they've recorded. They have a sound which is unlike most of the other sample libraries out there, in that they don't sound massively over produced, or have the imprint of one (overly identifiable) room. They sound like you're sitting behind a beautifully tuned set of drums. The Kontakt version has lots of great extras, including a sweet sounding EQ, and a very versatile Transient Master. The Kontakt pack really comes to life when played from e-drums, and has instantly earned a place as part of my live electronics rig."

"The new Big R Kit is perfect to use in Maschine: the quality and depth of the samples combined with the creative possibilities of the platform provide a truly expansive dub experience! The Big R Kit is also a refreshing change from the many standard rock and pop kits."

"The Dub Kit is an awesome sounding and versatile drum set, presented in a perfectly executed interface... It's already found it's way into a number of productions. I'm particularly taken with the sound and dynamic of the hi-hat in conjunction with the snare, really cool for getting a drum track that has serious depth and grooves effortlessly!"

"Characterful and natural, this pack is a great starting point for programming not only dub, but any style where a slightly left-field yet recognisably "live" drum sound is required. And the spring impulses sound great too!"

"This kit sounds amazing. Especially the snare and the hats are by far the best I’ve heard and played in a sampled kit. The dub spirit of Carlton Barrett must have been present during the recordings."

"This set is my first foray into using Drumdrops samples, and whilst i may not have much of a history with working with live drums i have been listening to reggae for near 35 years and i can at least tell that these have a good solid quality to them, you can hear and feel the weight in the kick drum, and there`s edge and bite in the hihats and snares, everything sits together well and is great for an authentic 70`s roots reggae sound, splash on some of your favorite spring reverbs and filters and your in dubwise heaven."
