Joey Sturgis Miles McPherson Drums
Performed by legendary session drummer Miles McPherson, this pack is an addition to the Joey Sturgis Drums line. It features two kits, a 1972 Rogers kit recorded at Miles’ home studio, and a Yamaha kit recorded in a professional studio. The former is a little grittier, while the latter is a little more polished. Both will fit well into any rock or metal track. Great lengths were taken to make everything as realistic as possible. This means things like snare wires on or off, microphone bleed, and articulations for each hand. It only requires Kontakt 4 or above to run and it’s on sale for just $29 (down from $199) right now.
