Sound Percussion Labs, the evolution of the Sound Percussion brand, has launched with a new look, a hip new logo, and a bold new line of high-quality drum kits, percussion, and hardware designed to meet the needs of beginners, students, and experienced professionals alike.
SPL’s new Unity Series represents a fresh generation of pro quality drum kits that combine sleek, modern design and rugged construction to create a range of all-in-one kits that offer everything you need, right out of the box. Unity kits are an ideal choice for students and intermediate drummers, as well as experienced players who want a practice or additional gigging kit.
From subtle and laid back to slamming power punch, SPL Unity Series drums deliver superb tone with more than enough resonance, volume, and power. Unity kits feature a sleek, streamlined look, with head-turning hardware and a choice of three popular finishes. And every Unity kit is built tough, with rugged, multi-ply, all-poplar shells, precision cut 45-degree bearing edges, and low-mass lugs for maximum resonance.
The Unity D4522 is a professional 5-piece kit that delivers a complete playing experience, right out of the box.
