The Almighty, Birch

Genuine Japanese Birch

Sakae has been building high-quality, all-Japanese Birch drum kits for many years. Now for 2014, they are bringing a Birch option to their popular Almighty Maple series. The legendary Birch sound, with a staggered ply construction, has been a top studio choice for years. The Sakae Almighty Birch series features 8-ply bass drum shells (7-ply floor tom; 6-ply tom tom) that are carefully crafted for a minimal seam.

Mix and match birch and maple shells for a truly unique sound to your kit!×

I came to SAKAE because what matters most to me is the sound. After visiting the factory in Osaka, I was blown away to see that such a refined product is completely made by hand every step of the way from the shells to the lacquering process.
