Sound Percussion Labs, the evolution of the Sound Percussion brand, has a new look, a new logo, and a new line of drumkits, percussion, and hardware designed to meet the needs of beginners, students, and experienced professionals alike.
The SPL Unity series drums are said to deliver superb tone with more than enough resonance, volume, and power. Unity kits feature a sleek, streamlined look in a choice of three finishes and are built with rugged, multi-ply, all-poplar shells, precision-cut 45-degree bearing edges, and low-mass lugs for maximum resonance. They are an ideal choice for students and intermediate drummers, as well as experienced players who want a practice or additional gigging kit.
The Unity D4522 is a professional five-piece kit that includes a 16×22 kick drum, 8×10 and 9×12 mounted toms with adjustable mounts, 14×16 floor tom, and a matching 5×14 wood snare. Also included is a pair of 14″ hi-hats and an 18″ crash/ride cymbal. The D4522 features black-coated hardware and rugged, double-braced cymbal, snare, and hi-hat stands, along with a single-chain kick pedal and a throne.
The Unity D4420 is a four-piece kit that includes a 16×22 kick drum, 8×12 mounted tom, 12×14 floor tom, and matching 5×13 wood snare. The kit also includes double-braced cymbal, snare, and hi-hat stands and a single-chain kick pedal.
The first offering from the new Velocity series is the S5418 Street Bop kit. The four-piece set’s classic birch and basswood construction is said to deliver crisp highs and defined lows. The kit includes a 16×18 kick drum with matching wood hoops, 7×10 mounted tom, 13×13 floor tom, and a matching 5×13 wood snare.
SPL product manager, Gerry Helfrich, remarked, “Sound Percussion Labs is truly a new generation of drums for a new generation of drummers, and both the Unity series and the Velocity series will ensure that drummers can have many options, even on a budget. Whether you’re an aspiring drummer looking for a kit to hone your chops on or a seasoned professional looking for a second kit for rehearsal or gigging, there’s an SPL kit for you.”
The Unity D4522 lists for $399.99; the Unity D4420 lists for $279.99; and the Velocity S5418 Street Bop kit lists for $299.99.
