The Working Drummer's Kit
Natal knows that constant gigs and trips can take their toll on your equipment, so the Arcadia shell pack is a workhorse of solid, reliable tone. Modelled around Natal's Original line, the Arcadia has short-stack toms and a contemporary build. The road wearing Black finish gives a protective and attractive coating, so you know your kit will be safe in transit and on stage.
Despite its affordable price, many of the Arcadia features are shared with the higher spec Original line. The Arcadia benefits from the signature Natal Sun Lug design, and produces a well-focused, precise tone ideal for gigging. The mid scooped quality is a necessity for solid, punchy recordings in a home studio environment. The Arcadia Poplar series is a classic kit, producing slightly more bass and reverb to give your beats extra punch. The poplar's bright tone makes the Arcadia easy for microphones to capture, whilst maintaining the depth that many drummers find critical to a kit's sound. The low mass lugs and triple flanged hoops increase sustain for a beat that not only projects on contact, but has a levelled decay on the open sound.
About Natal Drums
Natal was originally conceived in 1958 by distinguished British percussionist Alan Sharp who, unable to find the exact instruments he wanted to play, sourced their individual parts and assembled them himself. Alan's new Afro-Cuban bongos were of such high quality that orders began to flood in, from his protégés and contemporaries alike, eventually leading to the foundation of the Natal Percussion Company in 1965. Natal enjoyed huge success, especially with its revolutionary fiberglass congas, which found favour with the likes of Santana, T. Rex, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple and the Rolling Stones.
Continuing Alan’s legacy, the Natal design team have produced a stunning range of drums, snare drums and hardware. Every part and component is designed from the ground up. Natal is committed to producing drums and hardware of the highest standard of quality. As well as being British designed Natal drums and hardware are British quality controlled.
