The Music City SDX is the original recording its sibling, the much praised Nasville EZX, is derived from. It was recorded in Nashville own hot-spot, the Sound Kitchen Studios. These facilities have been named “Nashville’s Best Recording Studio” by Music Row Magazine and have a main room widely known for its big and warm sonic qualities.

The Music City SDX comes with a PB Drum Co. kit sampled with both sticks, brushes and hands. On top of that, it features a unique Slingerland Vintage 1968 set and a wide range of snares and cymbals as well as an extensive MIDI library.

The Music City SDX presents big, warm and genuine drums that you can hone, mold and shape to fit in any style of music – from country to pop, rock and soul.

With more labels, publishers, writers, producers, musicians and artists per capita than any other city in North America, the fact that Nashville, TN is nicknamed Music City, USA surprises very few. So, if you set out to record great sounding all-round drums with an obvious hint of that million dollar country music-sound the city is so known for, where do you go? Yes, to the place where the lion’s share of all chart-breaking country productions are made – you go to to Music City, USA.

Then of course you look up two of Nashville’s most influential names in engineering and overall musicianship: Chuck Ainlay and Harry Stinson. Chuck is a Grammy Award-winning engineer with a mind-blowing track record, Harry a multi-instrumentalist, artist and engineer/producer with number one status in all those fields. Between them, they have worked with artists like Dire Straits, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle and Martina McBride.
