Why not try making some of your own? (There should be a link to that in your drumkit manager)

Other drumkits than those available at www.hydrogen-music.org:

This might not work for you - depends on what OS (or Linux-distro) you're using - but for me, I've been installing drumkits (the installer is based on Fedora Core 5) from here:

http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/fedora/linux/planetccrma/5/i386/hydrogen-drumkits-2006.03.03-1.rhfc5.ccrma.i386.rpm.

These are implemented by the website PlanetCCRMA (specialized linux music distro - based on Fedora Core)).

For me, only the PlanetCCRMA has given me the LEAST troublesome setup of software and system-setup for music making.....

Are you looking for Hydrogen drumkits (*.h2drumkit format)?
If so, the hydrogen home site has pretty much all of them.

For drum samples, look no further than Google. really.
Try phrases like "free drum sample sets", and the like.

I'll get you started with three:

http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/
http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/
Creative Commons licensed sounds, noises, samples, etc. More than a few drum sample sets of varying quality.
(you have to join to download...)

http://manytone.com/freedownloads.html
http://manytone.com/freedownloads.html
Lots of sounds, grouped by instrument (Kick, Snare, Tom, etc...) so you'll have to pick and choose to taste.

http://samples.kb6.de/downloads.php
Lots of classic drum machine sets sampled (drool...)
Free to download for now, after some date, they will make you sign up for the newsletter to get at them sets...

Have fun, and if you come up with something nice, post a drumkit.xml here. That is, for kits whose samples you are not licensed to redistribute...

Hi.

How am I able to make my own Drumkits?
Is there any possibility of combining several drumkits like the kick from tr-808 and the one from HardElectro in one drumkit?!

I´m prety new with Hydrogen since I got it a few days ago...
But my first impression is great!

From the mixer panel, double click a drum name.
from there, you can load your choice of drum sound (from other kits, even...) and when you're done, go to the drumkit manager and go to 'Save' and give your kit a new name...
Voila'

What you've found is probably all there is for Hydrogen kits, but if you'd like to get your hands dirty constructing your own sets, you might look at the samplepacks page from the freesound project:
http://www.freesound.org/packsView.php

Search the page for 'drum' and you'll turn up some nice sample packs to get started.

Also, look around at the KB6 site for sample packs of classic drum machines:
http://samples.kb6.de/downloads.php

Shoot him a few bucks and you'll get the whole enchilada, well worth it!
