Kingpin is a punchy vintage kit combining classic vintage tone and modern snap. This kit can dish out everything from R'n'B and urban grooves through to rock, pop and indy tracks.

The kit itself is a 1970s vintage Gretsch USA maple comprised of two rack toms, two floor toms, two kick drum variations and two snares. The drums are accompanied with Bosphorus cymbals for a dark, dry and smooth finish. The kit was sampled in a controlled enclosure for a tight and direct sound. As usual we've used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit, including Neumann mics, a vintage Neve desk, API and Chandler preamps and a roll of 2" tape.
Product Details:
- Multi-sampling: each key contains up to 8 velocity layers for expressive detail. Natural performance thanks to 6 "round-robin" hits on every single zone
- Layouts: Keyboard and eKit/V-Drum mapping layouts provided. The keyboard layout is General MIDI (GM) compatible
- Output routing: stereo and multi-channel output versions provided
- Kontakt instrument interface: with volume and mic controls
- Instrument swap: instantly change the snare drum sound at the press of a button
- Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more intricate and subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for heavier tracks
- Presets: for quickly changing sounds
- Trigger maps: for sound replacement
