Traps A400 NC Acoustic Drum Kit (excluding cymbals)
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 fitted 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.

However the kit is sturdy and although it will never sound like my Yamaha Oak Custom kit, first impressions seem ok. The only drawback so far is the hi-hat stand; whilst it's of reasonable quality, the legs cannot be rotated independently from the main shaft. Therefore ok for use with a single pedal, but unusable with double pedal. Also worth a mention is the poor print quality assembly instruction sheet, which I found barely legible. If this cannot be improved, I suggest the instructions are duplicated and available on-line.|
|Does exactly what I expected.|
|A drum very satisfactory tool for the study|
|Interesting kit! I think the frame needs to be about 1 inch wider, as it is very hard to position the first two toms in a decent position. I've ended up putting tom 1 'upside down', which has worked. Tuning the drums is not easy. Bass drum is amazing considering its size and the snare is surprisingly good.... Read More. Interesting kit! I think the frame needs to be about 1 inch wider, as it is very hard to position the first two toms in a decent position. I've ended up putting tom 1 'upside down', which has worked. Tuning the drums is not easy. Bass drum is amazing considering its size and the snare is surprisingly good. Very well engineered, given the price. Didn't realise it came with a hi hat stand and bass drum pedal, which I don't actually need. I will be changing the heads to something a little thinner, as I am not convinced the supplied heads are particularly great. The kit looks very different and stands out and certainly draws attention. I'll be taking it to Germany on a short series of tour dates, instead of my usual monster Roland TD20 / 30 kit - needed something small and portable and this is going to be fine for the job, once I get the sounds tweaked! Overall, a remarkable drum kit and amazing value for money.|
|Drums are for a student and now it's assembled, is stunning to play.|
|What a fantastic little kit! Takes an hour or so to get everything positioned just right first time out of the box, but once it's locked off you're sorted for future set-ups. Plays very sweet with the heads tuned correctly. Took less than 5 minutes to break down and pack away, and that included a... Read More. What a fantastic little kit! Takes an hour or so to get everything positioned just right first time out of the box, but once it's locked off you're sorted for future set-ups. Plays very sweet with the heads tuned correctly. Took less than 5 minutes to break down and pack away, and that included a wipe over to get the finger marks off the chrome. Well chuffed! It's ebay for the old kit, that’s for sure.|
|So far so good! an excellent practice kit with a bigger sound than I had expected. It that has already elicited some favourable comments from other band members.|
