    Ludwig 26x14 Kick Drum Sample

    I'm looking for a Ludwig kick drum sample 26x14. I recorded one and am not completely happy with the results of the solo kick mic. If anybody has a single hit of a 26x14 kick drum sample/ludwig, I'd really appreciate it. I bought Addictive Drums, but that didn't work too well. Thanks, Nate
