"This Pathfinder Kit packs a huge punch for a small kit! Huge deep tones! The kick drum sounds massive! The finish and hardware color are also spot on! This will be my go to for practice, studio and giggin! Thanks SJC for another masterpiece!" - Frank Zummo (Sum 41 and Street Drum Corps)
ABOUTYou asked and we delivered... introducing the Pathfinder Series; our most affordable series to date. We’ve combined custom specs with smaller sizes to create the ideal option for the drummer seeking quality tone in a transportable package. Featuring agathis shells with a beautiful cherry wood outer ply, this series exhibits a slightly deeper tone than maple while producing smooth high frequencies. The Crimson Super Satin finish combined with black SJC hardware creates a custom aesthetic for the player who’s looking to represent SJC without breaking the bank.
ABOUT AGATHISAgathis is a wood that comes from a type evergreen tree found in the southern hemisphere. The shells we offer with agathis plies exhibit rich, warm tone with a dynamic bite. Deeper than maple and slightly brighter than mahogany, these shells pack punchy, cutting tone making smaller diameters sound larger than life.
