Sun Drums is a sister instrument to the famous Moonkits, focusing solely on sticks rather than brushes, with the same studio, the same vintage console and microphones, the same soft, dynamic drumming style.
Featuring a huge collection of vintage & modern drums, Sun Drums is built with a modern, dry sound in mind – from classic breakbeats to booming hip-hop or just fat pop drums.
Sun Drums was recorded at Konk Studios in North London, founded, and still owned by, Ray Davies of The Kinks. The room harbors a fantastic drum sound, as heard on records by The Stones Roses, Massive Attack, The Fall, Blur, Depeche Mode, Portishead, Al Green, The Cure, Artic Monkeys, The Kinks and about a million others.
The custom Neve console (with 1095 EQs) was bought from Utopia studios in 1974 and was used to record The Wall by Pink Floyd among many other classic records.
