You know, even after listening to all of the online samples for Scarbee Imperial Drums, Drums From Hell, and BFD, I still think NSKit sounds better than any of them. I'll have to take a listen to Kingston Drums when I get home.

Upon hearing the Kingston Drums, I must conclude that Natural Studios still sounds better to me. That's just my opinion, though. I could be wrong. The Scarbee Imperial Drums comes in at a close second. Draw your own conclusions. Razz

You can get the free version of BFD off of the latest ComputerMusic magazine. It's on the DVD attached to the magazine cover. Not bad for free but if you have a good sample player you can make the natural studio kit sound just as good.

The only thing that bugs me about NSKit is that they process their samples using a stereo buss compressor after the recording and snipping is done (you can read about it in the downloadable manual). Granted, it's only a slight compression, but you can hear it. It's a great sounding kit, but in the end, I would prefer to be able to process more raw samples myself, but the price of NSKit makes it the real price/performance winner in my opinion.

I don't know what BFD and DFH are like in this regard. To be honest, I wasn't impressed with the sound samples offered of either package.

Keep in mind all of these observation are from listening to sound samples, and not from actual usage. I wish I could use all of these packages first to choose the best one. *sigh*

wow, awesome thread. I've been too lazy to get around to buying some more drums, I wish they sold smaples in stores around here, ordering them online is such a hassle since I don't have a credit card.

I'm pretty much exclusively using the NS Free Kit with Battery these days. It's a step up from the internal kit I was using in my K2000.
