Foundation X is one of three new ranges of hardware from SJC, featuring a versatile selection of high-quality drumming equipment. Foundation X focuses on reliability, ensuring you get the most out of your drum setup during every performance. With heavy-duty steel designs, double braced legs and full adjustability built in, Foundation X Hardware promises a secure, balanced, and functional foundation upon which you can build your drumming setup. Foundation X stands feature 1 ¼" and 1" diameters, with a ¾" top tier on the cymbal stands. The stand bases are double braced and fitted with oversized rubber feet, offering increased stability and balance for your cymbals and ensuring you can focus on your playing without worrying about cymbal security. Cast hinged height adjustment systems allow for effortless adjustability of your stands, with nylon inserts for elimination of unwanted metal to metal contact. Cymbal stands feature convenient gearless tilters, with a ball-in-socket joint on the snare basket for virtually unlimited customisation of your snare angles and positioning. Foundation X hi-hat stands use a smooth direct-pull action, whereas the kick drum pedals utilise a more responsive double-chain cam action. Adjustable pedalboards and beaters ensure that the kick pedals can be altered to your exact preference.
Foundation Series hardware is the latest addition to an every-growing range of high-quality drumming equipment from SJC. The team at SJC believe that having a solid, roadworthy set of stands is the key to a quality drum rig, which inspired the design of the Foundation Series hardware. Foundation stands and pedals are designed to withstand the needs of any drummer, offering a foundation for your drums and cymbals that you can rely on, time and time again. The Foundation hardware consists of 3 ranges: Foundation X, Foundation Flatline, and Foundation Shadow. The X series is aimed at the everyday drummer, featuring classic tripod base stands with heavy-duty steel designs, whilst the Flatline hardware features low-profile flat bases with a vintage feel. Foundation Shadow consists of a range of black-plated stands, offering a lighter weight with the same strength and structural integrity as the X series. When you purchase Foundation Hardware, you’ll receive the same experience and support from SJC as you would buying drums.
With humble beginnings in Mike and Scott Ciprari's (SJC) Grandmother's basement, SJC has since developed into one of the world's leading drum manufacturers and suppliers. In the beginning, the brothers were determined to pioneer the sound of a generation tirelessly seeking to improve themselves and their drum kits until they had reached a state of perfection. As the brother's skills progressed and they got better at building, they thought it a good idea to get some of their friends to play their kits and start to spread the word. Bands such as 'A Wilhelm Scream' and 'Strike Anywhere' were some of the few endorsements from the brothers. SJC's turning point came when the musical sensation 'Panic! At the Disco' played the MTV music awards in 2006. This pivotal moment enabled the brand to branch out and endorse a variety of bigger and more diverse bands like 'Hawthorne Heights', 'Aiden' and 'Cobra Starship'. Expanding their already impressive artist roster, SJC began to reach unprecedented heights and managed to move out of their grandmother's basement and into a warehouse, enabling SJC to introduce a small number of new dedicated staff.
Embracing the game of innovation, SJC has consistently created drums that produce high-quality tone and a distinct character, often to the exact specification of high profile artists. In the last two years SJC has signed drummers Branden Steineckert (Rancid), Cyrus Bolooki (New Found Glory), Zach Lind (Jimmy Eat World) and Tre Cool (Green Day). With all these world renowned artists previously being endorsed by huge international companies, it speaks volumes of SJC for their desire to switch to a custom company.
Always on the cutting edge of innovation, SJC has always focused on making the drummer the focal point of any performance.
With a virtually endless list of custom options, SJC prioritises the drummer's specific requirements whilst never compromising their classic and unique sound. With an ever expanding list of big names upon their roster, SJC has been a consistent choice for many renowned drummers the world over, emphasising their commitment to quality and sound.
"I've played on literally every brand of US drums out there, and I've finally found my home. I've been looking from drums like these my whole life. True American hot rod custom kits. From the look and sound to the service and attention, it's good to now be part of the SJC family." Tré Cool - Green Day
"I have no clue how I just barely started playing these drums, they sound incredible! Not sure what rock I was living under. I can't express how proud I am to now be part of SJC and get to play these amazing drums every night." Dave Joyal
"Me being real and honest: I am so proud to play SJC Drums. They have treated me so well since I started playing them 5 years ago. Thank you!" Rian Dawson- All Time Low
