Introducing 'Festy Kit'! A lovely sounding Tama Swingstar 5 piece kit with space for your hi-hats and five cymbals.
This kit is ideal for music festivals and music events where tight changeovers would usually be a rather stressful experience when you have to wait for the last drummer to 'clean up' before you can set up.
With Festy Kit you get a drum kit as well as a 'tech' to help you configure and set up, resulting in saving time and stress so that you can concentrate on the music rather than 'how much time have I got left to finish setting up'.
