This ultimate vintage collector's item gives you bragging rights that almost no-one else has
R.E.T. Percussion has released the latest addition in its custom shop electronic drum line, the NS2 line which is the next generation of design in the Natural series kits. R.E.T. has completely recreated the real feel of an acoustic drum set as each drum offers a 13" playing surface with real drum heads. The company cites one of the main concerns of most drummers was the ability to obtain a "real feel" out of electronic drums as many utilize a mesh or rubber playing surface. With this in mind, the Natural Series was born.
Utilizing real drumheads for a more natural feel, the NS2 triggering system truly gives the same feel as an acoustic kit, but with the sounds and benefits of an electronic kit. R.E.T. uses a unique muffling system that cuts stick noise levels by 60 decibels and gives the drummer more natural dynamics and stick bounce. The NS2 technology takes full advantage of the latest modules utilizing dual tom triggering and locking Neutrik connectors.
The rack is double braced and sturdy enough to take the kit on the road, folding down for easy transport. An extension is available for adding toms and cymbals to your kit.
R.E.T. Percussion is now exclusively using Smartrigger cymbals with every NS2 kit. Smartrigger offers electronic cymbals featuring quiet brass-alloy playing surfaces, authentic cymbal playability, feel, swing, and responsiveness along with superior triggering, according the company. Their patent-pending electronic cymbals are made from real metal cymbals laminated to a special clear acoustic dampening layer to produce an electronic cymbal that looks and feels like an acoustic cymbal without the acoustic cymbal sound.
R.E.T. Percussion backs their products with a 1-year warranty and a custom shop certificate of authenticity.
