Traps A400 NC Acoustic Drum Kit (excluding cymbals)
The Traps A400 NC is the first portable kit to feel and sound like a regular drum kit. The drums are constructed from a very high quality and durable A.B.S., are fitted with Remo heads, steel counter hoops and are tuned with the traditional multi screw tuning system. This also allows the use of pads for silent practising. The rack system that the drums and hardware fit to is made from substantial steel tubing which means that everything stays exactly where it's put when the kit is set up.

The Traps A400 rack mounting system is made from sturdy large diameter chromed steel tubing. The kit can easily be set up for either left or right handed players using the supplied tough ABS multifunctional joints.
When set up, the rack is very strong and, once fitted with the supplied four large rubber feet, stays where it's placed and doesn't move. This provides a noticeable improvement in playability compared to other portable drum sets in this price bracket.
Quality hardware included
The Traps A400 comes fitted with quality hardware as standard. This includes hi hat and kick drum pedals, which are both rugged and free moving. Also include is a snare basket and boom cymbal arms (which can be slid into the frame for easy storage).
The hardware is both reliable and distinctive with black-painted footplates and 'Traps' embossed seat squab. They also feature quality chain drives, memory locks, expansion springs and clutches.
12 inch snare drum
The A400 12 inch snare drum has a very crisp sound as a result of the high quality ABS moulding combined with the chrome plated steel counter hoops, Remo Ambassador heads and 8 square headed tension screws. This all results in a snare that's easy to tune and capable of cutting rim shots and thick X-stick sounds. The drum also features a sturdy throw-off with a positive feel and a knob at the opposite side of the drum for adjusting the stretch in the snares.
10,12 and 14 inch toms
The A400 toms are manufactured from a tough ABS bespoke moulding which is further strengthened by a triple flange counter hoop, then to complete the tom it is fitted with a top quality Remo Pinstripe head. As with all the A400 drums an industry standard multi screw tuning system is used.
20 inch kick drum
The A400 20 inch kick drum is an uncompromising double-headed design fitted with a UT Powerstroke 3 drumhead on the back and Remo Ebony drumhead on the front printed with the Traps logo. It is also fitted with chrome plated steel hoops.
Its shell is made from a robust high quality injection moulded A.B.S. fitted with custom dual mounting points ideally suited to mounting in the A400 rack mount system. A strong metal plate is fitted to bottom of the rear counter hoop so that when the kick pedal is fited the beater strikes the head at the optimum position - top of the upstroke.
Please note that the stool is an optional extra and the kit does not come with cymbals.

|Good product, however assembly instructions were poor.|
|Bought as s practice kit but much better sounding and louder than expected|

I need to tune it up as I'm guessing it comes straight out of the factory - little concerned about how tight you have to do the lugs up to hold all the hardware in position - think it might slip over time and possibly even during playing so have to see how it goes. Impressed with the size of it - the frame could definitely be developed even further to allow packing away easier.|
Interesting material, super compact, and sounds great, the bass drum needs to find the right setting, but once everything settled it sounds ...
once soundtrack with microphone, it sounds like a high game of drums.

I think there are a number of design improvements that could still be made with the kit; a better (and adjustable) hihat stand, more flexible tom placement, a better bass drum pedal to name but three. The worst thing about the kit was the instructions that came with it. I was lead to believe from reading various reviews that a laminated colour printed sheet was included. Instead, a poorly copied A5-sized completely unreadable sheet of paper was provided. Fortunately the instructions are available online as a pdf (but not, interestingly enough, from the manufacturer's website). Overall though, a very good kit and excellent value for money.|
|Product was exactly what was required. great value product.|
|Bass drum, response, tuning and overall treatment to get a "decent" sound is questionable. Apart from this, the general quality of the kit is good.|
|The kick drum takes a bit of tweaking, but overall, excellent value for money|
|Absolutely brilliant product. Unbelievable sound from such a small kit. Great to set up and break down at live gigs. Very versatile for range of sounds and styles that the kit can be tuned to. Rest of band dubious at first sight but blown away at sound check!|
|Too early to give a detailed assessment, but good so far. I will be using this for rehearsals only - to save me transporting my full size acoustic kit. Will still use proper kit for gigs, but I think this Traps kit will be great for rehearsals.|
