Most of the drumdrops files are large. The speeds are going to be a lot lot slower than downloading am MP3. An MP3 maybe 2 or 3 meg in size one of our multi-tracks can be up to 800 meg which is almost a gigabyte. It is similar to downloading half a movie. The speed can fluctuate depending on your internet connection, location, computer and even the time of day. In peak periods it will be slower. If you download large files a lot and feel our download speeds are a lot slower than other companies please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as we want to ensure our customers have a great downloading experience.
We shall be adding an additional mail order service soon.
Once purchased from the Drumdrops site we allow you to download the files again. Just login to your account and all your purchases will be there.
