Sakae Celestial drums

Celestial

The Celestial kit features Sakae’s new Chamber Specific Technology (CST). CST is another innovation in the 88-year history of Sakae and is a result of decades of collaborations with some of world’s top drumming artists. Eizo Nakata, Sakae’s 3rd generation President states, "Sakae believes that in the search for the ultimate resonance and tone, individual drums within a drum kit should not be limited to a certain ply configuration, bearing edge or even shell composition."

Sakae Almighty drums

Almighty

Select, 6 ply North American Maple shells are carefully crafted for a minimal seam. Each shell features a sharp bearing edge for clear attack and great tone. Heavier lugs help to focus vibration and sound transmission to the shell edge. All toms achieve complete tone isolation thanks to our unique cradle mounting toms, floor tom leg mounts, and rubber padded bass drum spurs.
