The Simone Pocket drum kit is the ultimate companion drum kit that fits everywhere, at a music party, an impromptu gig, a mini stage in a restaurant, an already crowded studio or a classroom to accommodate an extra student. The bass drum + snare drum + intermediate tom kit fits in a pocket with a floor space of only 1m2 (without the cymbals)...
As for the sound, it has everything of a great one: incredibly generous bass despite its small size, an ease of adjustment offering you an immense versatility, whatever the sound you like, from the most fat to the most singing...
Funk, Rock, Jazz, Pop, the Simone Pocket kit adapts to all your desires and all styles, in a few turns of the key. The coating is reminiscent of a good leather perfecto, both in its imitation appearance and its resistance to shocks, scratches and splashes of liquid (a beer for example!). Moreover, you don't need a cover, your Simone Pocket kit has a tough skin.
However, the Simone Pocket's cover is based on Fender® music amplifiers and hifi technology and is designed not to muffle or alter the resonance of the drums. Metal hoops on each drum, including the bass drum, give you a true all-terrain drum kit that won't be afraid of the wildest gigs... The transportability of a drum kit has always been a subject of innovation and reflection for us, this drum set echoes the "Gigogne ASBA" drum kit invented in the 70s.
