Sakae Osaka Heritage says…”The first shell kit from SAKAE OSAKA HERITAGE, Evolved, builds on everything that was great about the legendary Sakae Almighty drum kit recognized internationally as one of the best drum kits ever produced.
Tsuji Producer of SAKAE, says “We accomplished The Almighty during some difficult days for Sakae, and despite this we humbly believe it is an excellent product. We know many people think of this kit when they hear the name of SAKAE Drums and they respect it very much. So, for Evolved, we knew we had to surpass that already great product and make it uniquely brilliant at the same time.”
Like The Almighty, the new Evolved kit is made of specially sourced high-quality Maple wood emphasizing a perfectly balanced sound and rich harmonics, while taking the drive for perfection to new heights by fine tuning the number of plies (thickness of the wood) as well as enhancing many other elements, all combining to further refine the sound. Only a few hundred Evolved kits will be produced each year to ensure Sake delivers one of the highest quality, best sounding drum kits.”
