Sakae Drums is revisiting a legendary drum sound with the introduction of the Trilogy series. 'Our approach was to utilise the three-ply shell in a way that would have a distinctive Sakae sound, but still pay homage to that vintage sound so loved after all these years,' states Eizo Nakata, president of Sakae Drums.
Sakae's proprietary Maple/Poplar/Maple 3-ply shells are at the heart of Trilogy's vintage sound. 4-ply North American Maple reinforcement rings at the top and bottom of the shell help to dry the sustain and keep the ultra-thin shell in round.
The shells are made in Osaka Japan by expert craftsmen. All shells are perfectly round and feature precisely cut bearing edges allowing for clear attack, great tone and a wide tuning range. Sakae Drums feature bigger air vents, helping to achieve low and rich tones.
Developed for the smoothest operation ever the Sakae snare strainer feels remarkably natural and comfortable to engage, while keeping snares securely in place. With improved wire materials, increased thickness and more strands, Sakae snare wires provide a crisp, sharp response.
The hardware is from Sakae's PAC-D and Road Anew series. It is lightweight and helps allow the thin shell to resonate as much as possible. Also, the Trilogy series is extremely lightweight, making the perfect shell for the classic Jazz tones of the 50's. Sakae's distinctive attack, when utilised with thicker drumheads, creates the punchy, dry tones of early R&B and 70's Rock.
