Did you know that – 9 factory kits found in DrumIt Three are using Zourman Drums Black Beauty Snare?


I just realized that our 3 zone snare of the legendary 1920s Ludwig Black Beauty delivered by Zourman Drums/Drumforce found in the 2box DrumIt Three factory library is used by a lot of predefined factory kits in the “Three” . (Extremely fun for us at Zourman Drums!)

The DrumIt Three kits using the Zourman Drums Black Beauty are:

  • 6, DrumIt Live Kit
  • 13, The 2 Snare Kit
  • 19, Stockholm Jazz
  • 28, Loop Bossa
  • 29, 103 BPM Rim Loops
  • 35, Studio Muller
  • 39, Jazzland
  • 78, Under Pressure
  • 87, Birdland

This 14×6.5″ Super-Ludwig Deluxe/Inspiration model was produced somewhere between 1924-1930. A couple of signs indicates that this legendary snare was a preproduction unit to a special artist and that it is therefore produced before 1924 (We believe around 1922). The series was called Black Beauty because of the black shell finnish (often with engravings).

Zourman Drums/DrumForce recently launched the complete pack with the rest of the sampled sounds of the Black Beauty snare (about 6 sound packs more) especially for 2box Drumit Three and support for 3 zones. (e.g. Head, Rim & Crosstix in the same dsdn) This pack also works for DrumIt Five, but here you need to manually select between the Rim or Crosstix sound.

More details about this legendary snare – please have a look at this link

Amazing video review of Zourman Drum Hi-hat Conversion Module!

Sometimes you get amazed – I was searching on the “net” last week and found a fantastic video review of the Zourman Drums Roland hi-hat conversion module for 2box. The youtube video has been created by the user “Block Lobster” which seems to be extremely dedicated to 2box and have an extremely nice setup with 2x 2box modules and a big load of e-pads and cymbals.

A very nice review ! Big thanks to “Block Lobster” for your contribution and thanks for watching!

Roland 3 Zone Ride Conversion Module for 2box



Posted on 3 Comments


To extend the Zourman Drums offerings, we are now adding a new conversion module which will enable 2box owners to use existing non-2box 3 zone rides – particularly the popular Roland range.
Our conversion modules combines the best of both worlds: the Roland CY-13R and CY-15R rides together with the 2box DrumIt Five module. The Zourman 3 zone ride conversion module replaces a standard 2box ride cymbal with your favourite Roland 3 zone ride. The solution is 100% plug and play (only 2box settings needed to be changed) and handles both outputs (bow/edge & bow/bell) on the Roland CY-13R and CY-15R through the two input connectors found on the conversion module. The Zourman Drums electronics and intelligence combine the three+choke trigger signals and deliver the output into a standard 2box 3 zone input (single stereo jack).
Demo of the 3 Zone Ride conversion box in action:

Zourman Drums introduces models with Virtual Clutch functionality

Zourman Drums introduces models with Virtual Clutch functionality – a just great idea which was initiated from a user!

Virtual Clutch is a system where the hi-hat pedal position can be set in advance dynamically between open/closed mode. Just a perfect solution for drummers with double kicks who sometimes need the ability to set the hi-hat pedal in to near closed position – just as a real hi-hat. A switch on the front panel will set the Zourman hi-hat module in virtual clutch mode. A potentiometer adjusts the hi-hat position between open or closed. One feature is that the pedal will still work as usual when in virtual clutch mode, but then will go from the fixed position to closed when pressing down the hi-hat pedal.

The new added virtual clutch models includes support for Roland FD-7, FD/8, FD-9, VH-11 and VH-12 hi-hats and the 2box DrumIt Five module.

Interested? Have a look on

The virtual clutch functionality is offered on new separate models of the Zourman Drums hi-hat conversion module.
Best regards
