FXpansion presents BFD Sleishman, a set of 2 expansion packs for BFD2 and BFD Eco designed to capture the sensitivity, tone and dynamic range of Sleishman drums, according to the company.

The Sleishman system of suspending the shell without any physical contact with lugs and other hardware supposedly results in unbeatable sustain and purity of tone, the company says. The drums' tuning system is designed to keep both heads in tune with each other.

FXpansion says that this means that the BFD Sleishman expansions offer a very individual drum flavour: ultra-refined and full of thick, sustained tone.

BFD Sleishman Drums
BFD Sleishman Drums comprises a 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 are said to feature natural sustain and contain additional Rim Shot and Rim Click articulations when used with BFD2. The kick, tuned to produce a punchy, tight tone, according to FXpansion, is recorded with felt and rubber beater types.

BFD Sleishman Snares
The BFD Sleishman Snares expansion pack consists of recordings of 4 Sleishman snare drums: a 14" maple shell snare (played with rods and sticks), a 10" maple piccolo (sticks), a 13" rosegum snare (brushes and sticks) and a 14" blue acrylic (sticks). Some snares feature additional articulations when used with BFD2.

Feature Highlights Include:
  • 2 Low-cost, download-only expansion packs for BFD2 and BFD Eco
  • BFD Sleishman Drums features a 20" kick; 10", 12" and 14" toms; and a bonus 'lite' snare
  • BFD Sleishman Snares features 4 premium snares, some played with rods or brushes
  • Extra tom articulations when used with BFD2

BFD Sleishman Drums and BFD Sleishman Snares are described as the latest in a family of "low-cost, high-quality downloadable expansions for BFD2 and BFD Eco." The range includes the Yamaha-based BFD Heavy, Oak Custom and Maple Custom Absolute kits, Signature Snares, Cocktail, the 8 Bit Kit, Sonica’s Japanese Taiko Percussion, as well as the BFD Decatom and BFD JEX kits.
