Designed for on-the-go musicians who’d rather not lug around a sizeable and heavy drum kit, the TAMA Cocktail-JAM Mini is a compact, four-piece, cocktail-style drum kit. It’s suitable for many acoustic genres, as well as hip hop, jazz, and other music played a variety of places. If you’re a drummer playing frequently in packed rehearsal rooms, small acoustic venues (i.e., cafes), or on the street, this kit styled in a hairline blue finish is a useful, utilitarian option, as it sets up in minutes.
Not only that, but due to the poplar construction of the shells employed, the kit packs a full, warm sound with a medium attack, ideal for those who play softer genres such as folk, jazz, and the more acoustic sides of country and alt-country. Included accessories abound, such as a Sound Focus Pad, which can be placed on top of the kick drum to secure a tighter, punchier sound.
A drum pedal designed for the cocktail kick’s upwards orientation is also provided, as is a set of hardware for setting up the kit. When broken down, the Cocktail-JAM Mini will fit into the two bags offered with the kit, making transportation a breeze. Cymbals and a cymbal attachment kit are available separately.
