We are very happy to have Natal Drums at Drumazon. We can't emphasise enough how impressed we are with the build quality, finishing and sound of these drums. These drums come from the factory in immaculate packing, everything is very well labelled, lubricated and it is obvious from the get go that the guys behind Natal (Marshall Amplification here in the UK) care deeply about their relatively new drum brand.
Here we have a very special top of the line Walnut Originals kits. This kit has been specially ordered by us, and sent direct from the factory in a special configuration which includes some exclusive sizes. Whilst these drums are pro level, they come in at an incredible price too!. The finishing of the shells, the bearing edges, the brushed nickel and metal parts are all second to none. The 7 ply American Walnut shells deliver low rich tones with that exceptional definition that only a walnut shell can deliver.
The Walnut Originals kit comes out of the box with a full set of Evans Drum Heads adding further value. All the shell mounted hardware is very well built, we particuarly love the mounting systems and the bass drum spurs! The tom clamps which are included (a rare thing nowadays) are probably the best approach we’ve seen to the ball & socket L-arm clamp type design, The roller balls are metal construction, making them quick and easy to position and fantastic to lock.
Each tom has two die cast Natal badges featuring the ‘Sun’ logo. The bass drum also features a wood I.D. badge, the beautiful brushed nickel plated zinc ‘sun’ lugs are another stunning detail. Natal also offer their own integrated suspension system which is attached very descretly to two of the lugs, the mount is then isolated by two rubber grommets allowing the drums to resonate freely whilst maintaining a more rigid and predictable tom mount that is far easier to use than many of the other isolation systems on the market that often have a great deal of lift that can make tom placement more of a guessing game.
This is going to be a great kit for anybody who wants great looks, durability and the fantastic sound of Walnut. Natal have a growing list of impressive endorsers and with an instrument as well priced and good quality as this it’s no wonder!
This special configuration offers an expanded set up with some sizes not normally available with out a special order lead time. We decided to spec a slightly shorter 22 x 16 bass drum reflecting the trend for shorter sizes that are proven to create extra punch and definition to the low end tone. We have ordered 8 x 8, 10 x 8 and 12 x 8 standard size rack toms that really suit this shell, for the floors we went for a square 14 x 14 and we opted to have the 16 floor as a 14 deep too to enhance the punch and tighten up the response.
