Get all four kits from the Hot Box series:

Boxer - 90s Premier birch with UFIP cymbals

Boxer is a punchy alt rocker with a boxy edge. It has an unpretentious direct sound with alt rock and pop written all over it. A solid kick, toneful toms, and three snares cover plenty of ground, each snare giving the kit a completely different feel. The kit works equally well for laid back grooves or fast and frantic flurries. Hear the kit for yourself by checking out the demos.

The kit was sampled at Sing Sing South studio in Melbourne, Australia, in a mid-sized tracking room, though a Neve desk, with the usual assortment of high end hand-picked mics, and processed with select outboard pieces.

The kit has been mixed with an indy production in mind, if you want to take the mix further there is plenty of scope to put your stamp on it.

Bombastix - Vintage Ludwig with Paiste 2002, and Sabian AAX cymbals

Bombastix is a sampling of a "holy grail" classic 1976 Ludwig in serious rock dimensions, including a gargantuan 26" kick. The kit has been tracked with 3 distinct snare variations, and two sets of cymbals - hand picked classic Paistes, and modern Sabian AAXs - to give you plenty of options for fitting the kit to your track. Bombastix will fit the bill for modern and classic rock tracks, or anywhere punchy hard hitting is required. It has been mixed for polished but natural tone - good-to-go as-is, or you can easily take the mix further.

The kit was sampled at The Lab studio in Auckland, New Zealand, in a mid-sized tracking room, though a Neve desk, with the usual assortment of high end hand-picked mics, and processed with select outboard pieces.

BlackSmith - Sonor SQ2 Acrylic with Zildjian cymbals

BlackSmith is a modern metal workhorse with an agressive yet toneful sound. This kit will lay an unshakable foundation for any metal track, or any other genre where a tight punchy articulate kit is called for.

BlackSmith gives you several mic layers to blend to your taste, easily taking the sound of the kit from clean and tight to spacious or dirty with the push of a fader. Three swappable snare variations help fit the kit to your track.

The kit we sampled is a top-of-the-line Sonor SQ2 Acrylic set, with three snare options, and classic Zildjian A Custom cymbals. The kit was sampled in Melbourne's Sing Sing South studio, a medium sized tracking room.

FatStacks - Vintage Gretsch with vintage Zildjian cymbals

Fat Stacks for mad tracks:
Fat Stacks is a vintage club kit with small drums for a big sound. This kit can set the tone for a range of styles that need an organic, lively beat. We think it sounds good for R'n'B, hiphop, funk, raw drum'n'bass, and even acoustic tracks. With several mic layers to blend to your taste, the sound of the kit can go from snappy and clean to gritty and lofi with the twist of a knob. Four snare variations and two kick variations keep things interesting. This is a kit Jesse Pinkman would be proud to slam.

The kit is a vintage 1970s Gretsch maple in club configuration, with a custom Pearl micro snare, classic Zildjian, Paiste and Wuhan cymbals. Tracked in a small dry room through classic APIs and modern Buzz Audio pres.

It's nearly a 12GB download so only purchase if you're able to easily download that much, and you'll need enough room to unzip 15GB.
