Peace Drum has decided to make sure that drummers of all stripes and persuasions can get behind a kit with the sound and look that expresses their individual taste and style. And with such a broad range of musical styles in the air - folk, pop, and classical traditions from around the world in pure form, or recombined into new sonic cocktails - only the Spectrum series goes to a lot of those planets.
Spectrum kits are available in four- or five-piece configurations; rugged Arena 690 series hardware is standard equipment. Three bold wraps are offered: a hot pink, an industrial finish called Spun Metal, and Rainbow. The bold look of the Spectrum Series is enhanced by ball and socket tom mounts, and crescent mounts allow the toms to achieve their truest tonality from the 9-ply maple/mahogany shells, a combination renowned for powerful projection and great tone.
Both kits feature a 16" x 22" bass drum, 5.5" x 14" matching wood snare, 10" x 12" mounted tom tom, and 16" x 16" floor tom. The five-piece Rainbow finish kit comes with black Raven Plate hardware on all the shells and also includes an 11" x 13" mounted tom. Suggested list price on the four-piece kit is $1179; the five-piece kit is $1299 MSRP.
