BFD Sleishman Drums comprises a full Sleishman Maple Classic kit (a prototype for the upcoming Omega range), and also comes with a bonus 'lite' Sleishman 14" maple snare (16 velocity layers).
The Maple Classic kit is played with both sticks and rods. The 3 toms feature stunning natural sustain and contain additional Rim Shot and Rim Click articulations when used with BFD3/BFD2. The kick, tuned to produce a very punchy, tight tone, is recorded with felt and rubber beater types.
