The Culture Kit features 138 samples taken directly from the kit of Brian Stabile, drummer of the prominent Orlando two-piece group Yogurt Smoothness. Featuring classic mic choices (beta52a on kick, md421's on toms), this is a brash but natural kit stained deeply with the feeling of the performance.
The Swagger Kit is composed of 66 samples from the Pearl Custom X-treme drum kit played by Arkie Jay (drummer of Orlando's Alias Punch). With an AKG 414 / Shure Beta 52a combo on a large 32" kick, SM57's on snare and an AT4041 pair on overheads, the swagger kit is rock solid and quirky -- all you'd expect from a small, but tight rock drum set.

Defiantly worth the price. The quality of the samples exceed the value by quite a bit. Very versatile and the mixture of the dry and processed gives access to many more possibilities
