Learn how Sakae drums will elevate your sound
Every instrument handcrafted at Sakae has been treated as a work of art, creating a sound that has become legendary.
We hope our art inspires yours.
The drum is suspended from 'mount lugs' which feature thick rubber isolation gaskets.
The MIGHTY HALO (left) features an inward curved edge which controls harmonics and creates a powerful, focussed sound.
The RIGHTY HALO (right) features an outward flanged rim, allowing the harmonics of the drum to be fully expressed. The result is a wide open sound, great for any genre of music!
The "tube" part of this lug is heavy and completely independent from contact with the drum. This ensures that "tube" part of the lug does not affect the vibration of the shell.
