200+ Of The Best Free Drum Kits EVER

Having plenty of drum sounds at your disposal is essential to your production workflow, downloading free drum kits is one of the best ways you can achieve having variety in the sounds you have in your arsenal.

Quality drum samples is as important to having an amazing track as eating and drinking is to stay alive.

There longer you don’t eat the weaker you’ll become if you have weak drum sounds your track will eventually die in people’s memories and won’t have much if any replay value.

This is all more the case if you produce urban music like Hip Hop, Trap or Lo-fi and if you have weak drum sounds I can almost guarantee that your track will not do very well.

However, the number one problem with downloading free drum kits is that there are so many out there to choose from, I myself have felt intimidated at the thought of digging through thousands of sounds just to find the right ones for my track.

This is where this list comes in, I myself have been producing for over 15 years and with so much experience behind me, I can comfortably say that I have the confidence to believe that I have perfected my ability to spot a quality drum sound with all the tonal and sonic qualities most producers are looking for.
