This kit is absolutely perfect for funk. Then again, this kit sounds so good you could use it on anything and get great results! The Pearl Reference Series drum kit is a masterpiece. To perfect the sound, Pearl engineered and designed each drum individually. Depending on size and depth, each drum has its own uniqe thickness and combination of wood types for the ultimate sound and resonance. The result is one of the best sounding drum kits on the market, and the choice for many world renowned drummers including Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Dennis Chambers (Santana).
Get instant funk action from over 30 mix-ready presets designed by professional studio engineers. These presets give you instant access to a variety of sounds ranging from clean and tight, to roomy and natural, and even some more heavily processed sounds. You can use these presets as-is or easily edit them to fit your needs. If you need inspiration, our collection of Funk-based MIDIpaks have tons of professionally played beats you can use in your own music.
