The drum kit is the pillar of a groove. Put three kits together in a fantastic ambient room and you’ll have an explosion of pounding energy.
That's the concept behind Synchron Power Drums - hard-hitting, energetic drum grooves played simultaneously on three independent yet interacting drum kits in Synchron Stage Vienna's famous main hall.
The sound will take your music to the highest levels of intensity, and let your inner drummer go wild!
With the Tama Star (2017) placed between the Tama Superstar (1972) and the Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage (1975) kits on the sound stage, you have the option of using these drums sets all together or individually, both in their recorded positions or in a centered position.
All three instruments represent the diverse sonic properties of different recording eras to give you a wide variety of sounds.
3 Drum Sets - 1 Venue
Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage
The Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage (left) delivers that perfect 70s sound and has been played by legends such as Ringo Starr, Karen Carpenter, and Nick Mason.
Its acrylic shells have a louder, punchier sound than wooden drums, and a well-tuned acrylic snare drum can deliver a ton of sonic "crack" and projection.
