Sakae Drums @ 2013 Winter NAMM

Everything seemed to get small at the Sakae 2013 NAMM booth. The Japanese drum maker has been exhibiting its beautifully finished drums at the past couple NAMM Shows, and this year was highlighting a trio of diminutive snare drums in 10" x 4", 10" x 5", and 12" x 6" sizes that would all make a great secondary add-on for particularly snappy backbeats and fills. Considering the great workmanship that goes into these drums, it’s about time Sakae had a higher profile on these shores.
