The base price of this drum is $385 as a center mount acoustic drum. The advantages of center mount drum are as follows:

  • Center Mount drum with separate floor mount can used by anyone; right footed, left footed, it doesn’t matter. Just move the floor mount tambourine to whichever side you want and go for it.

  • For the above reason, this drum can easily be converted to play while seated or standing. Just switch the floor mount to the relevant side and you’re ready to roll.

  • The center mount design creates adequate space inside the case to house BOTH drum pedals. This particular case is also large enough to house the tambourine and floor mount.

  • This design completely eliminates any resonant chime from the tambourine cymbals while hitting the drum head. Since the two components are detached, the tambourine will remain completely silent unless you’re hitting it with the tambourine pedal. 

  • This design also makes it a great choice for drummers as well as guitar players and other solo musicians. This makes a great alternative kit that takes up far less room than a traditional 22” bass drum. 

Other standard features include pedal bracket(s) and rear access mic port. This case is really unique and it won’t last long. So go ahead. Bring The House Down.
