TAMA's Cocktail-Jam drum kit gives you a full set of great-sounding shells, heads, and hardware that can be broken down, packed up, and carried in a single trip. The set includes two toms, a snare, and a kick drum, as well as all the mounting hardware, a kick drum pedal, and a Sound Focus Pad for the kick drum. The Cocktail-Jam sets up in a matter of minutes and takes up much less room onstage than a standard drum set, yet it sounds remarkably like a full-size kit. When the gig is over, you can break down your Cocktail-Jam drum set into the two included carrying bags â€” and off you go.
Each shell of this 4-piece fully acoustic drum set is made of birch to deliver a strong low end and enough cut to get through any mix. The Cocktail-Jam also boasts TAMA's low-mass lugs, which allow the drum shell to resonate freely, eliciting the best performance from these compact shells. The bass drum, toms, and snare drum are outfitted with Evans drumheads for the power to hang with a band â€” like a drum kit should â€” and TAMA has included a handy Sound Focus Pad to tone down the kick's resonance in close quarters.
One advantage the TAMA Cocktail-Jam 4-piece drum set has over full-size kits is the way it can be broken down and easily moved from place to place. Setup and tear-down can easily be done in under five minutes. And when you're storing or moving your Cocktail-Jam drums, they fit safely in the included drum and hardware bags. That's it â€” two bags for a whole drum set! No more taking multiple trips back to the van to get drum cases. Everything you need to play can be thrown over your shoulder and taken into the venue in one shot.
Another huge benefit to the TAMA Cocktail-Jam is that all your hardware, shells, and bags are included. Not only will you get four high-quality birch shells, but the hoops, legs, and mounting hardware all come with the kit and fit into the carrying bags. A custom-designed TAMA kick drum pedal is part of the package, too. When you're ready to expand your Cocktail-Jam kit, TAMA's cymbal-mounting attachment kit (MCAX5366; also available at Sweetwater) easily locks onto the hardware for the addition of hi-hats and any other auxiliary percussion you may need.
