There’s no doubt that the sound of the Drumcraft Series 6 is in a class of its own, but the high-quality lacquer finishes also make the drums real eye-catchers. The previous palette of two high-gloss and two satin finishes is now supplemented by two brand-new finishes: Black To Red Fade and Black To Vivid Blue Fade. These are color gradients that convey a fascinating optical depth. Both variants are limited editions and are therefore only available in limited quantities.
While maple has been the wood of choice for generations of high-end drum kits, walnut was mostly reserved for high-end vintage drums until now. The Drumcraft Series 6 combines these two kinds of wood in an eight-ply, 6.4mm strong hybrid shell that blends the dynamic attack of maple with the characteristic warm and full tone that only walnut can deliver.
Compared to monochrome lacquer finishes, gradient finishes exude a flair of their own. Black To Vivid Blue Fade showcases a gentle transition from deep black to an intense night blue, subtly revealing the beautiful grain of the drum shell. Black To Red Fade is reminiscent of the red evening sky just after sunset and therefore appears very natural and organic.
