The SJC Tour Series Kit Black has been created with a comprehensive versatility and powerful tone that bring rich attack and deep resonance, making for a formidable sound. 100 percent American Maple shells produce even highs and mids with smooth low frequencies. Every drum is individually tuned and played to ensure that they are ready to be played upon arrival, meaning that SJC'S astonishing tone is at the players immediate disposal. Although adaptable to a variety of different genres, the SJC Tour Series Kit is perfectly suited to the rock, punk or hardcore drummer.
Hand cut SJC 45 bearing edges ensure that shells resonate and consistently stay in tune whilst producing more sustain and attack upon the 6 ply toms and 8 ply bass drum. Featured 2.3mm tripled flanged steel hoops encourage open and long sustain so that the tone competently projects and cuts through the mix. SJC Shield Lugs offer better tuning stability and adjustability than tube lugs, making the kit more versatile and dynamic.
With a great sound also comes a great aesthetic. The sleek black satin stained finish upon a Maple shell gives the kit a distinctive vintage look and feel whilst maintaining its distinctively warm and smooth tone. The distinctive SJC badge is located on the front of the white unported resonant bass drum head proudly marking the kit as one of high quality manufacturing and craftsmanship.
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 brothers skills progressed and they got better at building, they figured 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 grandmothers basement and into a warehouse, enabling SJC to introduce a small number of new dedicated staff .
Embracing the game of innovation, SJC have 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 prioritizes 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, emphasizing 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
"The 12" rack tom shows itself to be equally as adaptable as its larger counterpart, sitting right down into real tub-thumping territory, then singing away beautifully in higher registers." "The tour series ticks all the right boxes, offering a highly usable kit across a wide cross-section of genres." Rhythm Magazine
"It comes as little surprise that the Tour Series meets high standards all round, considering the existing level of SJC's build quality." "As we can expect with maple shells, the drums are warm and resonant. Straight out of the box, the 8-ply bass drum is punchy and produces a hearty thump, even at lower dynamic levels." MusicRadar
