The driving idea behind Jazz Essentials III was to capture a gigging kit that has seen a lot of time on countless club dates. A tight 18" kick drum was chosen for the task. It had the right amount of attack and low end to serve these jazz tracks best. Ride cymbals were carefully selected from an arsenal of tried and true jazz cymbals. Big cymbals, dry cymbals, bright cymbals, dark cymbals. Whatever seemed to serve the music best was selected. We're confident you'll be able to get a great mix with minimal effort if you're after a truly intimate club date jazz vibe.
