The Studio Maple kit is very original model in both sound and appearance, with Sound Focus Rings on the inside of the shells and 100% Maple Wood Hoops. It has a focused, warm, woody tone with clear attack, and a relatively short sustain with beautiful decay. While great for live performance, this model really excels in the studio, especially when seeking a warm sound with controlled resonance.
All Maple Shell w/Sound Focus Ring
(TT/FT) 6ply, 5mm / (BD) 8ply, 6mm
Maple Wood Hoop
The 22 mm thick hoops provides warm sound and powerful attack especially rim shot.
This Direct-Flexi Mount utilizes a two-piece structure – a plate that is mounted to the shell, and another piece that receives the L-rod of a tom holder/stand. These two parts are hinged together using a steel shaft, allowing some slight horizontal play when striking the drum. This controls the vibration of the shell while still allowing it to resonate more freely than traditional direct-to-shell mounts. This in turn provides sustain and smooth decay for a smooth, transparent sound that draws out the intrinsic characteristics of the shell material.
