Vinyl Drums from Mars went through an interesting process. The sounds are created from scratch, cut to vinyl and then sampled. A blend of modern production techniques while paying homage to vinyl sampling gives a unique set of drums.
When we think about drum sample packs we usually think about kicks, snares, one-shots, and riffs. And oh yeah some hats.
Too often we overlook hats and their importance. So this is pretty dope that Illmind created a whole kit dedicated to the hats. Hats do a lot to dictate the groove, feel, and bounce. Now here’s a whole drum sample pack dedicated to the hats.

Now this list is in no particular order. So it only makes sense to put a 9th Wonder kit at number 9. An older one but 9th Wonder’s beats and drums are timeless. Best of all, this drum sample pack is free.
