Today the winners of the drumkit contest can finally be announced, but first of all a _big_ thank you to all the people that participated and to the members of the jury !
8 people entered the contest and submitted 11 drumkits. Some drumkits are small, others really big, some are very well engineered and others are ... euh ... 'special' ;-)
Ok, enough blah-blah already ! WHO WON ??
- First place (with a total score of 22/30) : the 'AC guitar strum' kit by Gabriel Verdugo
The H2 drumbody is on it's way to you !
The jury was really impressed with the high quality of this drumkit (total of 9.3/10 for technical skill !). Is this a true drum-kit? probably not, but then again we did ask you to 'use your imagination' and that's just what Gabriel did ! It's also nice to see how he pushes Hydrogen to it's limits :-)
Are you wondering what Gabriel uses this drumkit for ? Check out his work, it's quite impressive!
- Second place (with a total score of 21,67/30) : 'rumpf kit' by Emanuel Rumpf
A one-of-a-kind H2 T-shirt is on it's way to you !
Jury : 'very nice kit with loads of sounds inside' and 'interesting mix of sounds'
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all the people that submitted a drumkit !
All drumkits that participated in the contest will be made available for download as soon as possible, but for now you can already listen to the demo tracks of all submitted drumkits.
Note that the the jury was instructed to judge the quality of the drumkit, not the demo song.
