The BFD Deluxe Collection is the third expansion pack for FXpansion's BFD premium acoustic drum module. Unparalleled in its detail and recording quality, the Deluxe Collection was tracked at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studio facility in Chicago. The pack contains some of the most sought-after drums and cymbals of all time, recorded at up to 127 velocity layers in pristine detail.
The room in which the session was recorded is smaller and more up-front than the Eldorado room used in BFD and BFD XFL, giving the Deluxe Collection an extremely punchy and defined sound. The recording techniques employed also contribute hugely to the sound and character of the pack. Such esoteric microphones as the Josephson e22, c42 and c609, Royer R122 and the fabled Altec 150 'coke bottles' were used. The clarity and definition of the recordings has to be heard to be believed, and benefit greatly from Steve Albini's years of recording experience at the forefront of American music.
As befits a pack recorded in Chicago, the Deluxe Collection features some legendary Ludwig kits, including a Vistalite from the 1970s, with 6 toms and 2 kicks, and a 1965 Clubdate. As well as these vintage kits, several modern classics are included, such as a Sonor Designer, a Yamaha Pro Tour, a DW Black Oyster Pearl and a Gretsch USA Maple. Finally, a prototype BackYard Drums kit was flown to Chicago especially for the sessions. The Deluxe Collection represents the first time these exquisite boutique drums have ever been recorded.
In addition, the Deluxe Collection contains a Ludwig Supraphonic 'Bonzo' snare and a Bison maple piccolo, while the kicks were equipped with felt, rubber or plastic beaters. Five Zildjian hihats, including 14" and 15" New Beats and a 13" Z Dynobeat, and a large assortment of Zildjian, Sabian, Paiste and Wuhan cymbals have also been immaculately captured.
The BFD Deluxe Collection is ideally suited to any style of music demanding potent, stunningly recorded drums with a depth of dynamic variation to allow truly expressive playing.
