The electronic download of Custom Shop EZX Expansion Pack for EZdrummer 2 from Toontrack is a collection of the most rare, hard to come by, and unique handcrafted drums in the world. It was recorded by producer Joe Blaney (The Clash, Prince, Keith Richards) and drummer Stephen Belans at Brooklyn Recording, a studio with a room ideal for transparent drum tracking.
Featuring all handpicked drums, with tom shell sizes ranging from ten to 18 inches, several different types of wood and metal, as well as a host of cymbals, the Custom Shop EZX presents a broad sonic scope. The unique Q kit, with its solid copper shells, has a tone unlike any other—loud, open, and resonant, but still centered and focused with a deep and warm decay.
Furthermore, we have the Japanese Canopus kit in a traditional jazz setup, producing a much brighter, denser, and complex attack. Balancing between the previous two, we have the classic Craviotto in solid walnut shells, crafted by hand at a small boutique factory in Watsonville, California, giving you a punchy, bell-like clarity, but still a dark and round sound.
Finally, at the far end of the meter, we have the thunderous Fibes set, a maple-ply kit with a truly deep and vibrant tone. Add to these four extra snares, two kicks, as well as brushed variations of select kits, and you have a sonic palette with near infinite application.
