'Breaks for Beat Makers' is the latest live drum collection from Tombongo featuring 98 perfectly looped multitrack drum breaks performed by drummer Richard Preston at various tempos between 70-120 bpm.
All breaks were recorded at the all-analogue 'Gizzard Recording' facility in London using a 2" tape machine, vintage microphones and classic outboard gear for maximum retro authenticity, along with a number of different drum kits and tunings. All breaks are labelled with their exact tempo and are of course 100% royalty free.

Yes, completely new, recorded by Richard Preston using authentic equipment and techniques to create a classic 60s/70s funk vibe. They are completely royalty free, so once you've purchased the pack you can use them in your beats as you please, with no sample clearance payments, and no accreditation required.
These are the recordings taken directly from each mic used in the original recording. The kick and snare stems are from mics placed very close to these specific instruments, so for example, the kick stem will feature a much louder and drier kick, while the overhead mics have louder hats and capture more of the room reverberation.
Assign these to their own individual tracks and you can control the mix of the drums - for example, you could increase the kick volume and add a low boost that would only affect the kick drum, leaving the rest of the kit untouched.
