Saturn Evolution Hybrid Config

Hybrid-Shelled System - The combination of a maple/walnut bass drum and birch/walnut toms is our bold interpretation of today's modern drum sound. The birch toms deliver clear and punchy sounds in the high register while the maple kick produces a warm, round tone in the low end. The result is a redefined sonic identity that speaks to today's music scene.

SAS (SONIClear Attenuation System) Finish

The Natural Satin SAS Finish brings out the beautiful character of the woods used in the drums but also allows the shell to vibrate fully due to its extremely low-mass application. Thicker finishes like high-gloss add mass to the shell and shorten sustain. Future Design Lab models may employ a thicker finish to create a more focused sound.


Halo Mounting System

The revolutionary new "Halo" mount featured on all Saturn Evolution toms, unlocks the freedom of full resonance. Using a lateral, unique "under lug-line" suspension system, this new groundbreaking isolation mount allows the shell the freedom to have an open, pure tone. This is done with minimal stiffness usually associated with under hoop mounting systems.

Adjustment Knob

With the rubber gasket inside the mount, you can screw the knob down fully to dampen the shell resonance for a shorter decay, or back it off for a wide, open tone. In the studio, this allows you to "pre-EQ" your drums before feeding them into your plug-ins.

Birch/Walnut Hybrid Shell

First introduced as a special edition in 2012, the Birch/Walnut hybrid shell has made its return to the Saturn Evolution line with Design Lab features. The new shell formula perfectly combines the sonic characteristics of walnut with articulate punch of birch, delivering a Dark, Punchy, Dry sound.

Maple/Walnut Hybrid Shell

The iconic Saturn Maple/Walnut hybrid shell has been appointed with Design Lab features and SoniClear Attenuation System to deliver a fuller, rounder tone with bright, versatile, open sound.

Chamber Specific Design

Plies get progressively thicker, depths graduate by 1/2”, and bearing edges change as the drums get larger in diameter. The combination of all of these details creates an amazing symphony in one kit, where each and every drum sounds perfect!
