FXpansion is proud to present the second installment of Yamaha artist signature snares for your BFD2 library. With the usual high levels of detail, multiple channels and multiple articulations, BFD Signature Snares Vol.2 is ready for you to sequence and mix using BFD 2.1’s powerful software interface.

The snares are captured in the same room as previous Yamaha expansion kits and the Jazz & Funk, Percussion and B.O.M.B expansion packs, in Omega Studios, Rockville, MD, USA. The tight, precise and very playable sound makes them sound great when combined with any kit-pieces in the BFD library. BFD v2.1’s support for custom articulations allows these snares to offer ‘rim clicks’ in addition to the standard snare articulations, as well as positional sensing when used with electronic drums.

  • Gadd Signature Snare Drum (5.5″ x 14″): This brass-shell snare is a crucial component of Steve Gadd’s signature snare sound.
  • Chamberlin Snare Drum (5.5″ x 14″): With a steel shell that provides great ‘crack’ and punch, this snare’s satin chrome finish gives it the warmth for any musical situation.
  • Robinson Signature Snare Drum (5″ x 15″): Co-designed by one of the most recorded drummers in history, this birch snare provides the versatility for everything from slamming backbeats to soft ballads.
  • Leim Signature Model (6.5″ x 14″): The Paul Leim signature chrome-over-brass snare offers a rich, well-balanced tone and is played with hands, rods and sticks!
  • Garibaldi Signature Model (3.5″ x 14″): This brass snare features a sound full of richness, colour and balanced definition throughout its wide dynamic range.
