Classic Backbeats I is a versatile collection of live drum loops and drum fills. We captured an open and ambient live drum mix of a maple DW drum kit played in a spacious and warm recording room. If you want ultra-live, retro acoustic drum loops for rock, pop, surf, or bluesy-rock (think anything 60’s), then look no further. Classic Backbeats I provides thorough coverage of tempos, and a pure, punchy sound that simply makes it a “must have” tool for anyone needing the pure unadulterated tones of an acoustic drum set.
Classic Backbeats I is no lightweight collection offering a handful of useful loops. WIth 1.3 GB of total live studio drum loops, all arranged and organized by tempo, you will have one of the largest drum sample collections we offer on call 24/7 for all your songwriting needs.
