The Shells

Each of the shells feature a 100% poplar construction, made with 9 plies of 7.2mm. This provides a full, warm sound that sits beautifully in any live or studio mix while providing an incredibly versatile tone perfect for any drumming style. These shells are fitted with SONIClear bearing edges, produces rich tones from the toms, a robust crack from the snare drum, and a punchy low thump from the bass drum.

Each drum features the new Mini B-Lugs, inspired by the style of B lugs from the Saturn Evolution Series, the Mini B-Lug makes tuning smooth and easy. The TH652 Double Tom Holder offers easy positioning, multi-angle adjustment, and user-friendly experience to get your toms set up quickly and securely.

The Cymbals

The 14″ hammered brass hi-hat pair and the 18″ hammered brass crash/ride produce a warm cymbal sound rich with harmonics fitting perfectly with most genres of music.

The Hardware

The included P410 Single Bass Drum Pedal features a solid base plate construction for both durability and secure comfortable performance outpacing most pedals in its class. Single chain drive with adjustable spurs, a reversible and angle adjustable beater with a full-sized footboard all for a performance worthy feel. And the direct-pull-chain-drive mechanism of the H410 Hi-Hat Stand creates a smooth and responsive feel while the simple and strong hi-hat clutch keeps the top cymbal in place. The angle adjustable seat cup gives authentic hi-hat function and sound.

The Heads

Venus series kits are equipped with Remo UC drumheads ensuring a pure tone from every drum shell with every stroke, and the SONIClear Bearing Edge allows the head to sit flush prompting ease of tuning, increased shell resonance and optimal tonal clarity.
