The Sakae Trilogy range uses a three-ply shell to give a distinctive vintage sound to the drum. The ultra-thin shell resonates fully, creating a tone that is open, warm and deep with plenty of natural overtones. When used with thinner heads, the drums revisit the classic jazz tones of the 50s. Add a set of thicker heads, and the drums take on a whole new persona, reflecting the dry punchy sound of 70s Rock and Soul.
The shells are ultra-thin to get that great vintage tone and are created from a hybrid of Maple and Poplar. 4-ply Maple reinforcement rings are fitted to keep the shell strong, but also to tame unwanted overtones. The shells are fitted with ultra-light hardware so as not to choke the shells natural resonance.
Oversized air vents are added to the shells to give an added depth and richness to the sound, which is especially noticeable in the larger toms and bass drum. The kit comes as a 3-piece shell pack, featuring a 22x14 Kick drum, 12x8 Tom and 16x16 Floor tom. The whole kit is covered in a classic Black Oyster finish to put the final touch to its vintage flavour.
