What are Springs Drums & Thunder Tubes?
Spring Drums and Thunder Tubes are small drums with a long coiled spring attached. These percussive instruments are designed in multiple shapes and sizes that create unique timbres sounding like a blend between thunder, a gong, and a dijeridoo. In developing THUNDER SPRINGS Sample Logic was able to hunt down every size drum produced, many of which are no longer in circulation.
Unique, Diverse, & Inspiring
Sample Logic went well beyond standard performance and recording techniques with the Spring Drum and Thunder Tube instruments. Along with standard multisampling, they also used hammers, chains, crowbars, saws, and stretched the springs to capture insane timbres that have never been heard with these drums. From this material, Sample Logic was able to craft the finest dynamic and original acoustic cinematic sounds possible.
Mind-blowing User Interface

“Thunder Springs is incredibly useful for metallic moody ambiences, industrial sounds and metal impact hits. What’s really exciting is that in addition to the well recorded traditional spring shakes and strikes, there is a vast array of carefully sound designed percussive kits and tonal instruments that open up all sorts of creative musical possibilities!”
(Electronic Music Duo)
