Player Date is a quality, American-made drum set, available at a player’s price point. Player Date drums are comprised of two shell configurations (Player Date I & Player Date II), designed to handle diverse playing situations and bring a unique, vintage-inspired sound back to the drumming world. The same expert craftsmen who build our custom lines, also make these drums. No detail has been overlooked in creating this line, which is now a favorite amongst many of our artists and staff.
Designed as an extension of the Player Date I, Player Date II has a warm, round tone, slightly brighter than the Player Date I, with enhanced mid-range and a smooth even attack. It's 7-Ply Maple/Mahogany/Maple shell provides wide tuning range and versatility. Player Date II drums come standard with Bread and Butter bearing edges on the Bass and Full Contact bearing edges on the Toms. The snare bearing edges are Full Contact on the batter side and Bread and Butter on the resonant-side. There are metal 2.3 mm triple flanged hoops and C & C's centered, double-ended Deco lugs. The Player Date II is perfect for situations requiring volume and projection, yet very much at home in smaller size configurations that hearken back to a time when Bop ruled the jazz scene.
