Vintage Vibe! Classic Backbeats II really captures the natural beauty of a tasty Ludwig Kit, a sound that is sorely lacking in today's world of over-processed, compressed-to-death drums.

You know "that" sound - the kind our competitors serve up with an obnoxious dose of beat detective that sucks all the human element out and leaves just an ear-splitting ball of quantized loudness (not to mention the abuse of compression)? This disc is about classic sounds and grooves- a totally retro vibe. No over-processing, no massive reverbs or gating, no heavy-handed EQ.

What Classic Backbeats II offers is the pure live sound of a vintage Ludwig Black Oyster 60s drum kit - very resonant, full of presence, and the kind of reverb you can only get from a room (not dialed in on some effects unit).

A great kit with vintage pedigree, four mics, and a human hitting it with sticks - it doesn't get any more classic than this! Even with all the amazing technology in music today, nothing really can beat the pure sounds of a well-played and well-mic'ed kit.

Go retro with Classic Backbeats II!
