Bottega | Overload

Friday, December 11, 2020

Overload from Bottega is a brand new hard-hitting pack that is energetic and fun, all the while being bitey with just a dash of gnarly.

Step down into the trenches and get your hands dirty with Overload, a uniquely distorted take on the drum kit. Bottega created this sample pack because they wanted a great pack that wasn’t clean, yet retained warmth and color which is so useful. Often when you think of distortion and fuzz you’re mindful of the top-end grit (how good!!) - we give you that aggressive dirt but we made sure this pack has every ounce of tonality and richness that you need from the drums.
