Designed for professional record producers and sound engineers as well as drummers and home-recording enthusiasts, Modern Drummer Snare Drum Selects, Volume 1 is a BFD2-compatible collection of studio-quality sound samples taken from a dozen snare drums.


Snare Drum Selects, Volume 1 was produced, recorded, and edited by John Emrich, MD contributor and creator of FXpansion's BFD2 sample libraries, with the assistance of co-producer and Modern Drummer magazine associate editor Michael Dawson. According to Emrich, each drum was meticulously tuned and recorded in a multi-microphone format to showcase its unique sonic properties and offer the end user maximum flexibility. In addition to primary "snares-on" samples of each drum, SDSV1 also features alternate samples of selected drums being played with different combinations of sticks, brushes, mallets, and even hands.

The individual drums featured in Modern Drummer Snare Drum Selects, Volume 1 include:
  • AHEAD - 6x13, Nickel Over Brass
  • CADESON - 6 x14 Bubinga With Abalone Inlay
  • FIDOCK - 6x14, Stave Bubinga With Wood Hoops
