Hey guys! Just wanted to share with you this new collection of free drum samples by realdrumsamples that I’ve been enormously impressed with lately. They offer a kick-ass 100+ free drum samples pack on their homepage available for anyone to download.

What the Pros Say…

Jay Fisher, who made the samples, is getting some great feedback.

American hip-hop producer, audio engineer and mixer Neal Pogue (Outkast, Pink, Nicki Minaj, LL Cool J) says:

“I love what I heard! The 808’s, snares and percussions, these sound so great. Can’t wait to start using them.”
