DRUMS LIKE THUNDER.

Five kits, all capturing the raw, thunderous tone of classic '70s hard rock.

Fueled by acts like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, a new breed of rock burst onto the scene in the late sixties. With a big, thunderous sound, often with the drums as the barreling force in the front of the mix, the classic acts of this era didn’t only strike a chord that would resonate to this day – they shook the ground and started a landslide of heavy music to come.

It's from this legacy that the Big Rock Drums EZX picks up. Helmed by Rival Sons' drummer Michael Miley and Grammy Award-winning engineer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Europe, Zac Brown Band), it sets out to capture the raw essence of classic rock drums as we know them. Recorded at Cobb's own Low Country Sound Studio in Nashville, it presents five essentially different kits that still share one common denominator – they’re the massive, reverberant and roaring type, tailored for big rock songs.

As much as this is an homage to times that passed, it's at the same time a reminder of the fact that great tones never die – they echo through the ages. Quite simply: vintage never gets old.

Customer Reviews

Press Quotes

"The overarching theme, though, from the massive-sounding C&C to the tighter, snappier Camco, is one of Bonham-esque power and resonance. Miley's library of attitude imbued beats rounds the package off nicely." - Computer Music 

" The point is that no matter what style you're after, it it involves huge drums, Big Rock Drums will certainly get you there". MusicTech
