Our Sympatico System Gathering Drums come standard with Sympatico System Pretuned Synthetic Leather Heads. At much less than half the weight of traditional hand percussion drums. The Sympatico System of tunable and pretuned, interchangeable drums and heads will change how lightweight drums are perceived. By design, lightweight drums must be portable, durable and, well, light, easy to carry and transport. Unfortunately, the most common way to achieve this desired outcome is to eliminate bulky and heavy tuning mechanisms. In their place is a pre-tuned head. It does the job, it is definitely light, and durable, but the sound is what you get. What if you didn't have to choose between tunable, but heavy, drums and light, but un-tunable, drums? The Sympatico System solves this issue with its innovative, and proprietary, internal tuning design. It's significantly lighter than traditional tuning systems, and easy to use, and there's no extra bulky, heavy, hardware attached to the side of the drum to get in your way. In fact, it's hidden inside! And the heads are designed to simply integrate with Toca's existing line of Freestyle II Nesting Drums. Available in Lizard (LZ) and Woodstock Purple WP) finishes. These drums come with 18" heads in either Short (10") or Tall (18") heights. These drums are perfect for youngsters, classrooms, drum circles, music therapy sessions and more. Their durable PVC shells are not only lighter in weight than wood counterparts, but are easier to clean, and project thunderous tones. Each Sympatico Gathering Drum includes a pair of mallets whose shaft matches the color of the drum shell.
Note: These Sympatico Gathering Drums come equipped with Pretuned Synthetic Leather heads. We believe that these heads will give you the best sound out of the box. These drums are also compatible with the Pretuned Fiber Dot and Pretuned Fiber heads. These other heads are available for purchase separately.
