We’re going out on a limb here. It’s possible that the up-and-coming German drum maker DrumCraft is riding the edge of a wave that could easily sweep the drum industry. For a limited time, the company will outfit bass drums in its Series 6 and Series 8 drum kits with KickPort Sound Enhancers.
Go here if you aren’t familiar with the sonic benefits of the KickPort, but in short, this ingenious accessory can add depth and punch to any acoustic bass drum. Yet DrumCraft refuses to add anything to the price tag – the company is throwing this $59.99 value into the mix without boosting the cost of Series 6 and Series 8 kits, which are available in a wide variety of popular colors and configurations, and come in a choice of traditional American maple or cutting-edge Siberian birch shells.
Consider the fact that RIMS were considered a novelty when they were first introduced in the ’80s. Now every mounted tom includes some sort of suspension mounting system. We might write the same thing about KickPort 20 years from now, and DrumCraft will be among the first to stick its toe in the water.
Our apologies to the rest of the world, by the way, but this promo is available only in the U.S.
