For BFD2 and BFD Eco, FXpansion has released the BFD Jazz Maple expansion pack featuring a Yamaha Maple Custom drum kit.
Compatible with BFD 2.1 and BFD Eco, the expansion features several bonus ‘lite’ kit-pieces – a Yamaha signature Roy Haynes copper shell snare and a suite of Sabian cymbals.
The Maple Custom is an embodiment of the advanced progression in drum and hardware construction technologies developed by Yamaha, resulting in stunning sustain, warmth and projection. Although the tone of the kit lends itself particularly well to jazz, fusion and funk, BFD Jazz Maple is suitable for all styles of music that demand expressive, great-sounding drums. BFD Jazz Maple comes with a selection of BFD2.1 and BFD Eco presets which offer well-produced sounds right out of the box.
Feature Highlights Include:
- Low-cost, download-only expansion packs for BFD2 and BFD Eco.
- Includes bonus ‘lite’ signature Roy Haynes snare and with matching beaters.
- Includes bonus ‘lite’ Sabian cymbals with matching beaters.
- “Stunning sounding presets” with custom grooves.
- Includes 5 groove palettes from Platinum Samples – Real Jazz.
BFD Jazz Maple is the latest in a growing family of low-cost, high-quality downloadable expansions for BFD2 and BFD Eco. The range already includes the Yamaha-based BFD Heavy, Oak Custom and Maple Custom Absolute kits, Signature Snares, Cocktail, the strange and wonderful 8 Bit Kit, Sonica’s authentic Japanese Taiko Percussion, as well as the BFD Decatom and BFD JEX kits.
