Thunder Kit: Acoustic drums recorded with powerful effects and processing to create big sounding drum tracks for today's aggressive rock styles.

Trap Kit: Acoustic drums using smaller drum sizes, and tuned for a unique small, up-front type of sound. This drum sound has been popular in styles ranging from acid-jazz to R&B Hip-Hop. Minimal EQ and processing applied.
