BFD Dunnett Ti Expansion Kit
BFD Dunnett Ti is an expansion kit featuring a full set of hand-made prototype Titanium drums from renowned master drum-builder Ronn Dunnett, whose creations are some of the most sought-after drums for major studios and top drummers. With shells made from solid titanium, the Dunnett Ti kit is one of the most advanced all-metal drumkits ever created, and is suitable for all styles of music that demand powerful, musical drums. As well as two kicks and five toms, the package features a Dunnett snare drum and a full set of cymbals.

In addition to detailed direct, overhead and room mic sets, BFD Dunnett Ti contains an amp channel when used in BFD2, which can be dialled in to provide a variety of aggressive but organic drum sounds. Provided in the Amb3 mic channel, it features the kit fed through a Sovtek Mig 60 amp and Marshall 4x12 cabinet, mic'd with Royer 122 ribbons in a Blumlein configuration.

BFD Dunnett Ti is recorded in the same room with the same studio conditions as the Jazz & Funk, B.O.M.B., JEX, Decatom, Sleishman and Yamaha expansion libraries. It has also been designed to sound great with BFD2's built-in library as well as with BFD libraries recorded in other locations.
