Vintage Drums for Modern Beats

Sun Drums is a sister instrument to the acclaimed Moonkits - focusing purely on sticks, not brushes - with the same studio, the same vintage desk & mics, the same softer, dynamic drumming style.

Featuring a huge collection of vintage & modern drums, Sun Drums is built with a modern, dry sound in mind - from classic breakbeats to booming hip-hop or just fat pop drums.

Heritage Sampling

Sun Drums was recorded at Konk Studios in North London, founded, and still owned by, Ray Davies of The Kinks. The room harbours a fantastic drum sound, as heard on records by The Stones Roses, Massive Attack, The Fall, Blur, Depeche Mode, Portishead, Al Green, The Cure, Artic Monkeys, The Kinks and about a million others.

The custom Neve console (with 1095 EQs) was bought from Utopia studios in 1974 and was used to record The Wall by Pink Floyd among many other classic records.

Absolutely love these drums. Nothing else I've tried gets that funky, trip-hop type sound, and the snares are SO expressive. Preset kits are amazing too.

Despite the hype, I didn't find this product to be very useful. The online demos sounded great and so alive, but in real world use, I found the samples to be lacking punch and presence. It kind of hides in the background in comparison to some other popular drum vst's. Was also very hard to fit in a mix. The samples themselves are good, but overall didn't really contribute much to my projects. Customer service was also pretty contrite and not super friendly.
