Traps Drums

Full, resonant sounds in an incredibly portable shell-less kit!

The Traps Drums A400 is a portable acoustic drum kit that feels and sounds like a regular drum kit. The drums are constructed from high-quality, durable A.B.S. and are fitted with Remo heads, steel counter hoops, and are tuned with the traditional multi-screw tuning system. You can also use pads for silent practicing. The rack system is made from substantial steel tubing which means that the drums and hardware stay exactly where they're put when the kit is set up. This Traps Drums kit comes with complete rack, hardware, and Sabian B8 crash cymbal and hi-hats.

Geoff Nicholls of Rhythm Magazine asked in 2005: "Can a shell-less kit ever stand in for the real thing?" He concluded: "Shell-less kits are a viable alternative and Traps A400 is easily the best so far."

Rack system
The A400 rack-mounting system is made from sturdy large-diameter chromed steel tubing. The kit can easily be set up for either left- or right-handed players using the supplied tough ABS multifunctional joints.

When set up, the rack is very strong and, once fitted with the supplied four large rubber feet, stays where it's placed and doesn't move. This provides a noticeable improvement in playability compared to other portable drum sets in this price bracket.

Top Quality Hardware
The A400 comes fitted with quality hardware as standard. This includes hi-hat and kick drum pedals that are both rugged and free moving. Also included is a snare basket, boom cymbal arms (which can be slid into the frame for easy storage).

The hardware is both reliable and distinctive with black-painted footplates and a "Traps" embossed seat squab. They also feature quality chain drives, memory locks, expansion springs and clutches.

12" snare drum
The A400 12" snare drum has a very crisp sound as a result of the high-quality ABS molding combined with the chrome-plated steel counter hoops, Remo Ambassador heads, and 8 square-headed tension screws. This all results in a snare that's easy to tune and capable of cutting rim shots and thick X-stick sounds. The drum also features a sturdy throw-off with a positive feel and a knob at the opposite side of the drum for adjusting the stretch in the snares. This means that the A400 snare has the additional ability to produce Latin/world percussion sounds or to function as an additional tom.

10", 12", and 14" toms
The A400 10" tom is manufactured from a tough ABS molding which is further strengthened by a triple-flange counter hoop, then to complete the tom, it is fitted with a top-quality Remo Pinstripe head. As with all the A400 drums, an industry-standard multi-screw tuning system is used.

20" kick drum
The A400 20" kick drum is an uncompromising double-headed design fitted with a UT Powerstroke 3 drumhead on the back and Remo Ebony drumhead on the front printed with the Traps logo. It is also fitted with chrome-plated steel hoops.

Its shell is made from a robust high-quality injection-molded A.B.S. fitted with custom dual-mounting points ideally suited to mounting in the A400 rack mount system. A strong metal plate is fitted to bottom of the rear counter hoop so that when the kick pedal is fitted, the beater strikes the head at the optimum position--top of the upstroke.

Sabian B8 cymbals included:
16" crash and 13" hi-hats.

  • A set of 5 traps drums

    Comments about Traps Drums A400 Acoustic Drum Set with B8 Sabian Cymbals:

    After a month of playing, the drums cracked at the turning lugs. No replacement parts or even drums, just had to send the whole thing back. A complete waste of time. Great concept - some entrepreneur out there might want to consider making something like this with shells out of cast aluminum, or at least a plastic that is the same grade as that found on military rifles. The Traps kit is complete junk.
