Follow through Moonkits the journey of Soniccouture to the softer side of the drumkit. 5 kits, 2 drummers, a historic live room and a classic Neve desk. Brushes, rods, mallets, sticks.Moonkits: a mission to explore the softer side of the drumkit. Brushes, but not only for Jazz. Also rods, mallets, tea sticks: anything that mellows the attack and allows the texture to sing out.
