Included Kits:


Craig’s go-to TD-50X kit really packs a punch when you want to be heard. This versatile kit is ideal for nearly any style of music, offering full-depth tom sounds, a slamming kick drum, and a snare with maximum bite.

Fat Chop Pop

Perfect for modern groove players, this kit really pops when laying it down. It features a cranked-up snare that proudly sits on top of the mix in any genre.

Jazz Slam

This inspiring jazz kit has it all, combining traditional vintage textures with modern bite and cut. The huge dynamic range lets you cover any jazz-flavored material, from ultra-soft to loud and forward.   

The Detuned

This powerful, low-tuned kit will drive the band on everything from fat shuffles to heavy-duty rock and roll. While most kits lose their energy when detuned, Craig’s custom tweaks ensure that the drum sound always sits right up front with big punch and presence.

Blast DnB

With this kit, Craig fuses electronic and traditional metal tones to create a powerful platform for high-energy drum and bass styles. Featuring clever layering of synthetic textures over acoustic metal sounds, this fat and articulate kit is perfectly tuned for fast-paced drumming.
