Ever since his professional debut as a teen-aged sideman for trumpeter Red Rodney, Greg Hutchinson has offered eloquent testimony that youth must have its say. Today he is still a young man and still thick with the freshness of invention that was evident from the start. However, his youth is balanced with a maturity gained from valuable associations with the likes of Betty Carter and Joe Henderson.
"I have been a part of the Sakae tradition for a long time, so announcing my official endorsement of the instrument is truly like coming home. From a personal perspective it really is important for me to feel like I am part of a family and I get that with Sakae. In fact, I have known Eizo and his family my whole professional career. From a musical perspective, I have always loved the drums Sakae creates. Now that they are on their own and focused on their own art, the sound has become even better! I am not the only one to see this. Other artists I truly respect have made the move too and it just proves to me that what Sakae is doing is for real – and for me."Greg Hutchinson

Sakae’s proprietary Maple/Poplar/Maple 3-ply shells are at the heart of Trilogy’s vintage sound. 4-ply North American Maple reinforcement rings at the top and bottom of the shell help to dry the sustain and keep the ultra-thin shell in round.
Featuring North American Maple and exotic African Bubinga wood. The Celestial kit features Sakae’s new Chamber Specific Technology (CST) -- a ground-breaking process where each drum size receives a specific treatment to produce the most desired sound for that size shell. With the CST process, Sakae has successfully "Pre-Eq'd" each drum so that each speaks with it's ultimate musical tone.
