The collection was recorded at Omega Studios, Maryland, by a new engineering and production team led by John Emrich. The kits were recorded in a warm, bright-sounding room, using high-end mics and preamps chosen for their transparency and accuracy. Most of the instruments in the collection are provided in stick and brushed versions, with selected pieces also played with mallets, rods and even, in some cases, hands. A wide range of controlled, dynamic articulations are featured, including some never heard before in a BFD library. Snare cross-sticks and brush sweeps offer new expressive potential.
BFD Jazz & Funk Collection is centred around three kits - a Slingerland, a Yamaha and a 6-tom Gretsch. Several high-resolution hihats are included along with a vast array of Sabian, Wuhan and Zildjian cymbals. A variety of additional kicks and snares including vintage classics like a Ludwig Super Sensitive snare, a 1970s Slingerland 32â€� kick and a restored 1940s Leedy 26â€� kick, further expand the musical possibilities
