This shell pack is part of the extremely popular Natal Café Racer series. Inspired by the tulip wood kits of the ‘50s and ‘60s, the brand has successfully recaptured the old school tone, while improving upon it with heaps of modern innovation. This variant boasts an eye-catching purple matte burst finish.
The sound these drums produce is absolutely superb. Tulip wood is known for its warm, but biting tone and this set delivers just that. It combines this with enough controlled power (and short sustain) to punch through any mix with unrivalled impact. This versatile tone makes it a worthy alternative to the more traditional maple and birch drums on the market.
Each of the drums in the pack have been fitted with various pieces of hardware which are intended to enhance your drumming experience and reinforce the kits sound. Long lasting tuning is supplied via the Tru-Tune tension rods, which help the drums to sound consistently great over a longer period of time. They also make the art of tuning a much simpler and headache free process!
Telescopic bass drum spurs stop your bass drum from moving while you play. This can usually be quite a problematic issue when you’re performing live. However, this innovation holds your bass drum securely in place, meaning you can just focus on the drumming. It isn’t just bass drum placement that’s been taken into consideration – toms have had an upgrade too. This comes in the form of a clever aluminium ball mounting mechanism. They offer increased stability and reliability, simultaneously helping you to find your preferred rack tom placement.
Both rack toms also benefit from the Natal Resonance Mount bracket. This prevents wobble and attaches to each drum through just two lugs. Natal made this decision, as contact between any metal mount and the shell of a drum can negatively affect the natural sustain of a tom. Making the contact as minimal as possible between the mount and drum lets your tom’s resonance shine through.
