From the archive of beat maker, author and Revival Drum Shop founder José Medeles (1939 Ensemble, The Breeders) comes one of the world’s most extensive curated collections of unique and vintage snare drum sounds.

Decades in the making, the library was recorded at Vancouver’s Bocce Recording, under the thoughtful guidance of producer Mark Powers and engineer John Morgan Askew, and encompasses 57 unique, classic, vintage, and antique snare drums, offering a sonic palette of 1,425 pre-blended samples for you to use individually or as round robins in your DAW.

Also included are the original 7,125 samples captured from all mics involved in the process, giving you a grand total of 8,550 samples to use as you choose. Within this offering you will find not only 2s and 4s, but the rimshots, cross-sticks, ghost notes, and room dynamics to bring organic and authentic life to your drum mixes.
