SAKAE CELESTIAL 5 PIECE DRUM KIT, DARK BLUE SPARKLE LACQUER, BLACK CHROME FITTINGS (PRE-LOVED)
Here we have a truly custom order and very rare Sakae Celestial drum kit with Hybrid North American and African Bubinga Shells. The kit is finished in a custom Dark Blue Sparkle with Black hardware that was specifically finished for a Sakae Artist.
The kit comes with a full Red 5 Audio Mic Pack that has been factory installed, the kit is installed directly in to the shell so there are no nasty cables running on the outside of the drums and this kit could be used with other microphones if you wished to change them out for other models.
North American Maple and Exotic African Bubinga woods are used for Celestial which is the flagship of the Sakae Range. 2 plies of African Bubinga wood, known for its great resonance and projection, are used on the outside of the shell. By having the hardwood at the bearing edge, where the head contacts the drum, the most profound properties of the Bubinga wood are expressed. Keeping this consistent tone and level of resonance from the hardwood allows Sakae to adjust the low-end, sustain and projection for the each of the various drum sizes. This is the secret of Chamber Specific Technology.
Building on that philosophy, this ground-breaking instrument focuses on each drum and the specific treatment needed to produce the most desired sound for that size shell. With the CST process, Sakae has successfully "Pre-Eq'd" each drum so that each speaks with it's ultimate musical tone.
Sakae shells are made in Osaka Japan by the same expert craftsmen behind 4 decades of Yamaha drums produced by the Sakae factory.. All shells are perfectly round and feature precisely cut bearing edges allowing for clear attack, great tone and a wide tuning range.
This drum kit will suit a massive range of applications, it could be used in a very large array of different configurations making it an incredibly versatile live or recording set up, the 14 x 13 floor tom has also been specially converted to allow it to be rack mounted or floor mounted.
Summed up, this is an incredible opportunity to own one of the finest kits available in the world, these drums sound absolutely incredible and hold their own against the finest top of the range drums offered from other companies in the world today.
