My Jazz Drum Kit search is finally over! I’verecently been trying to create my own compositions that I can sample at a later date and I’ve had a hell of a hard time finding convincing, natural sounding jazz drums.

After about a week of trying out different drum kits, I found one by sample library maker Orangetreesamples and haven’t looked back since. It’s a small kit – a kick, snare, two toms, and two cymbals – but they are all multisampled, so you get that real natural timbre and sound as if you have a jazz drumer in your studio. Think quality over quantity on this one, check out the demo:

If you are producing jazz music, this might not be enough for you, but for all you hip hop and sampling heads, here’s a kit that will cover you on the jazz drum sound. You’ll get the individual WAV files, plus a Kontakt Instrument and a Soundfont where everything it already mapped properly and ready to jam. Enjoy the free download!
