The sandwich structure consists of two extra thin, resistant and high-pressure HPL layers, an outer and inner one, connected together at the centre with three alternating wooden 1mm-thick layers made with different types of wood in relation to the desired diameters and sound. This gives the tube mechanical strength and dimensional stability. The rigid and lightweight structure, its perfect point of contact with the skin (SP = start point) combined with the new lug (ST = strong traction) provide the drums with an extraordinary range of tunings, with timbres ranging from the lowest and hottest at extreme tensions with brilliant and high-pitched sounds. The hard and compact inner HPL layer (which has been used for the first time to manufacture a drum) ensures strong anchoring for the lugs and its waterproofness does not let humidity penetrate, thus preventing the formation of rust on the bolts, and the possible deterioration and ovalisation of the shell.
THE “S.T.” LUG (patent pending)
The new “S.T.” (strong traction) lug stands out for the innovative design with two tie rods connected with a tube. It encloses in a single structure all the essential elements to guarantee the perfect tension of the skin in a sensitive, fluid and stable manner. Consisting of: 1. an outer casing made of stainless steel (304): lightweight, mechanically resistant and non-deformable 2. it contains a threaded brass (OT58) pin: ideal to ensure a correct, accurate and long-lasting movement of the screw 3. ABS casing: with anti-vibration functions, pin lock and positioning of the clamping nuts 4. chrome-plated brass connection pipe
FLOOR TOM BRACKET
Chromium-plated die-cast block made with a light alloy with double clamping screw, ensures quick and safe locking of the leg, fitted with soft anti-vibration rubber seal. The shape and small size makes it easier to position the drum in its case.
Consisting of two HPL melaminic layers ( an outer and an inner one) with twelve layers of beech at the centre, glued together with special PU glue to create an hoop with strong mechanical properties and undeformable in only 8mm thickness.
The casted block allows a smooth and precise tension adjustement on the strainer and, with a small magnete mounted on the mechanism, stability and reliability are guaranteed.
