Big Rock Drums EZX
 
 
 

DRUMS LIKE THUNDER.

Five kits, all capturing the raw, thunderous tone of classic ‘70s hard rock.

 

Fueled by acts like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, a new breed of rock burst onto the scene in the late sixties. With a big, thunderous sound, often with the drums as the barreling force in the front of the mix, the classic acts of this era didn’t only strike a chord that would resonate to this day – they shook the ground and started a landslide of heavy music to come.It’s from this legacy that the Big Rock Drums EZX picks up. Helmed by Rival Sons’ drummer Michael Miley and Grammy Award-winning engineer Dave Cobb(Rival Sons, Europe, Zac Brown Band), it sets out to capture the raw essence of classic rock drums as we know them. Recorded at Cobb’s own Low Country Sound Studio in Nashville, it presents five essentially different kits that still share one common denominator – they’re the massive, reverberant and roaring type, tailored for big rock songs.

As much as this is an homage to times that passed, it’s at the same time a reminder of the fact that great tones never die – they echo through the ages. Quite simply: vintage never gets old.

We asked drummer Michael Miley to walk us through and put his own words to each kit of the Big Rock Drums EZX. Enjoy!

 

MAYER BROS.

Oh, the Mayer Bros. This kit has been used on all the Rival Sons’ albums. This kit just has it. Even Jason Bonham came in our studio and tracked with it. It’s fat, warm and punchy. Not too much low end; like in the subby neck of the woods. Low end is real beefy. The top snare head actually hasn’t been changed since we opened for AC/DC in 2010! This kit has the mojo risin’…

GRETSCH BROADKASTER.

Broadkaster!  This is from the reissue series Gretsch has just released this year. This kit takes you back to the ’50s FOR SURE.  This is literally the sound of the big band drummers, yet retaining that vibe for any modern or vintage sound in any recording and performing situation. And the Joyful Noise snare is just a cherry on top! Such a great company – EVERY single snare I tried over at Fork’s Drum Closet in Nashville had amazing character. I used this kit on the Rival Sons’ “Hollow Bones” album on a few tracks.

CAMCO OAKLAWN.

Camco. Yes. These drums were a surprise as I’d never played a Camco kit before, only heard about them. Again, a 22″ kick wide open, filling the two-story high tracking room at Low Country Sound. If I was blindfolded, I’d swear this was at least a 24″ bass drum, if not a 26″. And this C&C snare, holy moly. For being wood hoops, this snare had such a great ring! The cross-stick on this is obviously the way to go for any cross-stick tracking you might be doing.
