16" Acoustic American Tourister

16" Acoustic American Tourister


This vintage grey American Tourister is an unusual find. It’s a big boy so there is lots of space between the kick drum and the tambourine. It’s big on the inside too so there is lots of room to store your gear. And the sound? This drum is a monster.

This model features a 16” bass drum with a clear 2-ply pinstripe head and installed muffle ring. This design configuration gives the drum that low, punchy sound you’d expect from a kick drum. Don’t be fooled by other suitcase kick drums that look great but have no design technology to get the right sound. This drum also features a full size, removable tambourine so you can get set up and go live in no time. This drum can also be upgraded to an electric model for an additional $100. The upgrade package includes internal pickup, cable jack and signal boost pedal for running it straight into an amp of PA system. This is a good option for pro musicians that play multiple venues and need the extra power boost to accommodate a range of PA system quality.

Other standard features include pedal brackets and rear access mic port. This drum moves a lot of air when you hit the kick drum so we’ve placed the mic port dead center in the rear of the case. This enhances the sound quality and eliminates echo. Due to the structural design of this case, it is recommended that you place the drum in front or behind you and do not recommend you use this a a model to sit on.

Seriously, this drum is a work horse and will give you years of great sound. So go on, Bring The House Down.
