This has been a labour of great time & love, so your support is appreciated. This pack has been made to work for everyone, regardless of experience and skill and at any stage of track building to final mixing.

The drum kit used for this pack is a 1970's Rogers USA set prepared, tuned and played in authentic style by Mikey Shaw (Dub Cavern). This is the perfect dub and disco drum kit.
