SAKAE TRILGY 22"X14" 12"X8" 16"X16" £1695.00 Sakae Drums is revisiting a legendary drum sound with the introduction of the Trilogy series. "Our approach was to utilize the three-ply shell in a way that would have a distinctive Sakae sound, but still pay homage to that vintage sound so loved after all these years," states Eizo Nakata, president of Sakae Drums.

Sakae’s proprietary Maple/Poplar/Maple 3-ply shells are at the heart of Trilogy’s vintage sound. 4-ply North American Maple reinforcement rings at the top and bottom of the shell help to dry the sustain and keep the ultra-thin shell in round.
