BFD Jazz Maple is an expansion pack featuring a Yamaha Maple Custom drum kit, compatible with BFD 2.1 and BFD Eco. The expansion features several bonus ‘lite’ kit-pieces — a Yamaha signature Roy Haynes copper shell snare with a hand-hammered copper shell, as well as a ‘lite’ set of Sabian cymbals taken from the BFD Jazz & Funk expansion pack.
According to FXpansion: “The Maple Custom is an embodiment of the advanced progression in drum and hardware construction technologies developed by Yamaha, resulting in stunning sustain, warmth and projection. Although the tone of the kit lends itself particularly well to jazz, fusion and funk, BFD Jazz Maple is suitable for all styles of music that demand expressive, great-sounding drums.”
Along with the kit itself (featuring 2 kicks and 3 toms) and the ‘lite’ kit-pieces, the BFD Jazz Maple package includes 5 Groove palettes from Platinum Samples’ Real Jazz MIDI collection.
BFD Jazz Maple is the latest in a growing family of downloadable expansions for BFD2 and BFD Eco. The range already includes the Yamaha-based BFD Heavy, Oak Custom and Maple Custom Absolute kits, Signature Snares, Cocktail, S. Husky Hoskulds’ 8 Bit Kit, Sonica’s authentic Japanese Taiko Percussion, as well as the BFD Decatom and BFD JEX kits.
BFD Jazz Maple is a download-only expansion pack and is available now from the FXpansion webshop for $70.00 for all registered BFD2 & BFD Eco owners. BFD Jazz Maple is available at a special price of $50 for any registered BFD Jazz ‘n’ Funk owners.
