In terms of sound, it has everything of a classic tom:
Incredibly generous bass despite its small size, an ease of adjustment offering you immense versatility, whatever sound you like, from the fattest to the most singing... Funk, Rock, Jazz, Pop, the Simone Pocket kit adapts to all your desires and to all styles, in a few turns of the key. The Simone Pocket medium tom is the perfect companion tom to complement a snare drum, or the Simone Pocket bass drum for a music party or an impromptu gig, a mini stage in a restaurant, an already crowded studio or a classroom to accommodate an extra student.
The coating is reminiscent of a good leather perfecto with its imitation look and its resistance to shocks, scratches and liquid splashes (e.g. beer!). So you can save on a carrying case, your Simone Pocket tom has a tough skin. Based on the hifi technology and Fender® music amps, this coating is designed not to alter or muffle the resonance of the drum.
The transportability of a drum kit has always been a subject of innovation and reflection for us. The Simone Pocket range echoes the "Gigogne ASBA" drum kit invented in the 70s.
The innovations of the Simone Pocket tom:
- The carrying handle on the side of the tom
- The compact size (14x8) designed for spaces with little or no soundproofing
- The ampli-like coating of the drum is shockproof and scratchproof
- The light weight of the tom
- The optional carrying case
The history of the ASBA brand
ASBA is a French manufacturer of drum kits and percussion instruments. The company was founded by Alfred Boudard in Brévannes (Paris region) in 1927. Today, ASBA still embodies know-how and excellence worldwide. It is at the origin of numerous innovations such as the Caroline bass drum pedal, the 'Gigogne' drum kit, the tilter or the 'perche' cymbal stand. The factory is currently located in Lyon (69) and distributes its instruments in many European countries, North America and Canada.
