To change subject: I’m most looking forward to the Yamaha offerings. They are methodically rebuilding their lines and brand, as far as acoustic drums.
Hard to know what to make of this as the Sakae Drum company does not exist any more, and Korg bought the trademark. Maybe it means that some of the ex Sakae engineers are overseeing production.Interesting Sakae is overseeing production but for me its a nope. I hate a droopy bass drum.
Those are almost the same sizes as my Ludwig Giglite, but with a slightly deeper floor tom and better spurs. The floor tom also doubles as a snare? I love snoms. I'm interested.
Very interested to see how this sounds. But I doubt they will sound any fuller than other kits of similar dimensions. That's just a sacrifice you gotta make for portability.
IMHO, fairly heavy single point lugs don't accentuate the sonic characteristics of a thinner solid shell. A single lug that orientates the tension forces across the lug, rather than through the shell, allows the shell to contribute more. Just my 2c, otherwise, a nice looking snare range.
