BFD Dark Mahogany envelops your productions in the resounding, commanding presence of a Q Drums Mahogany drumkit. Drawing its inspiration from the mid-2000’s California hard rock scene, this drumkit effortlessly straddles the line between accompanying a wall of colossal guitars and locking into the groove of your tight bass lines and chug-laden rhythm sections.
The heart of this kit lies within its meticulously tuned 24×18 bass drum, boasting unparalleled perfection, accompanied by two exceptional snares: the iconic Ludwig 402 and a Q Drums aluminium beauty. These drums bestow upon your production the immense weight and robustness it craves, infusing a modern drum sound that’s bound to ignite creativity. Featuring a solitary rack tom and two formidable floor toms, this drumkit possesses a distinctive character, rendering tribal-like, thunderous tom fills an effortless endeavour. The core sound is deep and woody, endowing your composition with an authentic “live in the studio” ambiance.
The mellifluous Zildjian hi-hat and cymbals exhibit a dynamic, ethereal quality that seamlessly complements the drum shells, creating a harmonious musical landscape.
Recorded at the renowned Middle Farm Studios in the picturesque South Devon, England, these drums were captured with painstaking attention to detail, ensuring that the dreaded machine-gun effect is entirely absent. Employing top-tier microphones and preamps, the studio harnessed the essence of its stone-walled live room with unparalleled precision.
