Some kind words by current Drum Werks Volume I users:

5 stars for Beta Monkey Drum Loops
"I ordered and now got 3 CD's from Beta Monkey, and they are great. I have other drum loops that sound fine, but are too busy or complex for most songs. Telling Chris at Beta Monkey what I needed, I got three CD's with mainly simple straight ahead rock, pop, alternative rhythms." -- Tom (Denmark)

5 stars for Beta Monkey Drum Loops
"The grooves are great. I am a guitar player who started out as a drummer so I find the loops very creative and they take me out of my usual comfort zone for recording. Just tonight I cooked a little demo of an idea for the band. It all started with 3 or 4 of the files off one of the discs. Great stuff... and this frees me from having to play the drum tracks on the awful sound Yamaha DTXpress Kit I bought." -- Jeff (Canada)

5 stars for Beta Monkey Drum Loops
"Chris, Just let you know, I have been a studio drummer for 30+ years in St. Louis , MO, and I have never heard a clear sound like this before. The DW set (on Drum Werks I ) sounds better than the 1975 Rogers set I play on. Your DW set blows it away... cool." -- Donald Brown (USA)
