"Like many drummers who work a lot in a studio environment, vintage drums are an essential part of my recording set up. For many years I have been looking for a kit with all the benefits of modern, reliable, and tuneable drums, but with a vintage sound and feel. When I heard about the Sakae Trilogy drums I was very interested, but like many times before with other brands that have tried and failed to reproduce that classic 60's-70's sound, I was bracing myself for disappointment. How glad I was to be wrong! These drums are the best drums I've ever owned. They tick all the vintage boxes with echos of those classic era American kits, but what surprised me was how much of their own character they have. Just fantastic."
