Our shells are made in Osaka Japan by our own expert craftsmen. All shells are perfectly round and feature precisely cut bearing edges allowing for clear attack, great tone and a wide tuning range.
Sakae Drums feature bigger air vents, helping to achieve low and rich tones especially in the bigger toms and bass drums.
Heavier lugs ensure better vibration transmission to the shell edge
Our unique tom holder features a one-screw-adjustment, making it easy and fast to position your toms at any angle!
By holding the tom from the bottom, our cradle mounting system allows the drum to sit comfortably rather than hang. This provides better isolation. The drum is suspended from 'mount lugs' which feature thick rubber isolation gaskets.
Floor toms are also suspended from the bottom of the drum, completely isolating the shell's tone.
Our bass drum spurs feature thick rubber gaskets between the shell and the spur for complete tone isolation.
Our rims come in two varieties. The MIGHTY HALO (left) features an inward curved edge which controls harmonics and creates a powerful, focussed sound. The RIGHTY HALO (right) features an outward flanged rim, allowing the harmonics of the drum to be fully expressed. The result is a wide open sound, great for any genre of music!
Developed for the smoothest operation ever. Remarkably natural and comfortable to engage, while keeping snares securely in place.
Improved wire materials, increased thickness and more strands. Our snare wires provide a crisp, sharp response.
The Sakae Union Lug has the classic looks of a tube lug with more sophistication! The "tube" part of this lug is heavy and completely independent from contact with the drum. This ensures that "tube" part of the lug does not affect the vibration of the shell.
