ZOURMAN DRUMS/KOLEBERG RECORDING STUDIO LAUNCHES 101DRUMS BLUE/WHITE DIAMOND SNARE SAMPLES FOR 2box™ DRUMIT FIVE/THREE*
The 101Dums Snare Samples are the result of a collaboration between Zourman Drums and Johan Koleberg, an experienced drummer in Wolf and with a past in Therion, Hammerfall, Randy Piper’s Animal from W.A.S.P and an endorser of the swedish snare drum manufacturer 101Drums.
101Drums is a Swedish fast-growing company that specializes in making drum shells and snare drums out of a specially treated wood-fibre material. The shells are designed to be impervious to extreme weather changes and moisture. The resulting sound is intended to be deep and round – optimal for rock drummers!
Our latest collection brings together Zourman Drums’ 2box knowledge, a fantastic sounding snare and Johan Koleberg’s drum recordings in a great pack of snare samples. The custom samples are now released as a Zourman drum sampling product and customers can buy it as a download at the www.zourman.com site.
Johan also got the chance to sample one more 101Drums signature snare belonging to the famous Swedish drummer, Jamie Borger (Treat, Secret Service, Talisman).
This release of the snare package is designed for DrumIt Three (3 zones) but do also work with DrumIt Five™. (You only need to manually choose rimshot or x-stick sound)
101Drums Snares Background
101Drums is a Swedish company that specializes in making drum shells and snare drums out of a specially treated wood-fibre material. The shells are designed to be impervious to extreme weather changes and moisture. They’re lightweight, but can boast sonic properties comparable to a typical 6- or 10-ply wood drum. The raw shells are cured in an oven(baked) and use lacquer as binding instead of glue, which makes them very durable while also eliminating tension within the woodfibre. The resulting sound is intended to be deep and round but also provide a very high volume – just perect for hardrock and pop. Snares are currently available in 4.5×14, 5.5×14, 6×14, 6.5×14, 7×14, and 8×14 sizes, but the shells can be custom ordered with 4″ to 54″ diameters.
About the snare sample
The sample pack includes a couple of different ‘flavours’ of snare samples:
- 101Drums Blue Diamond – Jamie Borger’s signature snare, 14×6″
Each snare includes about 144 hits consisting of head, rim and x-stick sounds with different velocity. These drum hits are mixed into three different acoustic treatments for each snare – from Dry to Wet.
In release 2 (added 2020-02-15) we included all our 2box knowledge in terms of mixing, cutting, levels and made 4 different acoustic treatments for each snare – from dry, normal, ambience to wet.
Included in the package: (only Blue Diamond in this package)
