The Indie ADpak is the perfect choice for any production that needs drums with character! Real analogue sound, detailed grittiness and the perfect ambience to frame it all. This ADpak is all about the sound, character and analogue perfection. Simply put: creative sounds for creative people! The unmistakable warmth and punch of analogue tape are highly sought after characteristics in today’s digital domain. The hassle of actually owning and operating a tape machine versus the choice of using one of the digitally remodelled plug-ins out there it’s not much of a choice for most people. When it comes to drums the options of creating a sound is endless but among most technicians and producers they agree on one thing: Drums on tape simply sound better!
The Indie ADpak features a beautiful blue sparkle ICE Custom Shop drum kit. It’s a hand made modern vintage rock kit with new “old school” made shells and original vintage Slingerland hardware. The snare is a Premier Keith Moon signature “The Spirit of Lily”, part of the rare 8 Piece signature kit. We tried a lot of cymbals for this kit and found the Paiste 2002 and Signature series were a great match however the hi-hat is a vintage Zildjian K 15” for the right crisp.
Together with the studio owner Kalle Gustafsson Jerneholm and the engineer Henrik Gustafsson we carefully tried out and chose the best components for this production from the choice of drumsticks to the choice of tape to record on to get the right character. We tuned the drums to get the most out of the room with every kit piece and chose the microphones that captured this in the best possible way but also enhanced this with their own characteristics and colour. We managed to really capture the massive energy and character of these drums and the amazing room, with the subtle grittiness of the vintage microphones combined the silky sounding Neve desk and the rich and punchy Studer A80 tape machine. The Indie ADpak truly has the quality characteristics and attributes of a top class analogue recording.
