The revolutionary “Halo” mount, a lateral, unique “under lug-line” suspension system, unlocks the freedom of full resonance and allows the drum to sing with an open, pure tone. The Adjustment Knob acts as a built-in Equalizer that can slightly dampen the resonance of the shell, producing a tighter and quicker decay. Whether you like to go dry in a jazz gig, or sound huge in a packed arena, the Saturn Evolution has the whole package for you.

Features:

  • Halo Mounting System – The revolutionary new “Halo” mount featured on all Saturn Evolution toms, unlocks the freedom of full resonance. Using a lateral, unique “under lug-line” suspension system, this new ground-breaking isolation mount allows the shell the freedom to have an open, pure tone. This is done with minimal stiffness usually associated with under hoop mounting systems.
  • Adjustment Knob – With the rubber gasket inside the mount, you can screw the knob down fully to dampen the shell resonance for a shorter decay, or back it off for a wide, open tone. In the studio, this allows you to “pre-EQ” your drums before feeding them into your plug-ins.
  • Birch/Walnut Hybrid Shell – First introduced as a special edition in 2012, the Birch/Walnut hybrid shell has made its return to the Saturn Evolution line with Design Lab features. The new shell formula perfectly combines the sonic characteristics of walnut with articulate punch of birch, delivering a Dark, Punchy, Dry sound.
  • Chamber Specific Design – Plies get progressively thicker, depths graduate by 1/2”, and bearing edges change as the drums get larger in diameter. The combination of all of these details creates an amazing symphony in one kit, where each and every drum sounds perfect!

The iconic Saturn Maple/Walnut hybrid shell has been appointed with Design Lab features and SoniClear Attenuation System to deliver a fuller, rounder tone with bright, versatile, open sound.

DARK, PUNCHY, DRY SOUND:

First introduced as a special edition in 2012, the Birch/Walnut hybrid shell has made its return to the Saturn Evolution line with Design Lab features. The new shell formula perfectly combines the sonic characteristics of walnut with articulate punch of birch, delivering a Dark, Punchy, Dry sound.

 

 

 

 

AN AMAZING SYMPHONY IN ONE KIT:

Plies get progressively thicker, depths graduate by 1/2”, and bearing edges change as the drums get larger in diameter. The combination of all of these details creates an amazing symphony in one kit, where each and every drum sounds perfect!

 

 

 

BRINGS OUT THE BEAUTIFUL CHARACTER OF THE WOOD:

The Natural Satin SAS Finish brings out the beautiful character of the woods used in the drums but also allows the shell to vibrate fully due to its extremely low-mass application. Thicker finishes like high-gloss add mass to the shell and shorten sustain. Future Design Lab models may employ a thicker finish to create a more focused sound.
