Default Good 'reggae effects' pack?

Hello, I'm looking to spend some time learning reggae - can anybody recommend a good 'effects pack', like a set of wood block, plastic block, small splash, cowbell, etc - hopefully with a mounting system? Or is it better to just buy all the pieces separately?

You're not going to find a pack, you'll have to buy everything separately. That is the best way anyway so you can get the right sounds you're looking for.

LOL, yeah, good point - I've seen lots of drummers go to the bell of their ride for Reggae/Latin sounds.

I'm mainly looking for cowbell and mini-splash accents so I'll probably just get those.

Lot of the old school reggae bands had a percussionist or two, in addition to the drummer, playing hand drums, wood blocks, cowbells, even a vibraslap or flexatone.

Back in the day when I was in a reggae band, I used to keep a small timbale to the left of my snare (like a side snare), tuned kinda high, to use for accents. Normally you'd just do them on the snare, with the snares off, but I liked to keep the snares on, thinking the cross-stick sound had a better bite to it with snares on.
