Sound Percussion Labs Announces Kicker Pro

and Lil' Kicker Drum Kits

Westlake Village, CA - December 2014... Sound Percussion Labs (SPL), the evolution of the Sound Percussion brand, is out with a new look, a new logo, and a bold new line of high-quality drum kits, percussion, and hardware. With a broad assortment of kits designed to meet the needs of beginners, students, and experienced professionals alike, Sound Percussion Labs delivers an exciting new look and sound at an affordable price.

SPL's new Kicker Pro is a 5-piece, student-size drum kit that combines sleek, modern design, rugged construction, and professional features including tunable drumheads, a full-size chain drive bass drum pedal, and multi-ply, real poplar wood shells. With an 18"x14" bass drum, 12"x5" snare, 8"x5" tom, 10"x5" tom and a 12"x10" floor tom, as well as hi-hat and crash/ride cymbals, the Kicker Pro comes with everything you need to play right away. It also includes a drum throne, stands, hardware, tuning key, and set-up guide - even the sticks! Featuring a silver metallic glitter finish with stunning black powder coat hardware, the Kicker Pro is an ideal choice for students and young players.

The SPL Lil' Kicker is a 3-piece scaled-down drum kit that provides the perfect introduction to percussion for children 3 to 6 years of age. Unlike other "junior" drum sets, Lil' Kicker kits are built to professional standards, including fully tunable, replaceable drum heads, quality metal hardware, and real multi-ply wood shells. The Lil' Kicker includes a 16"x12" bass drum with pedal, 10"x4" snare drum, and an 8"x5" tom-tom, plus a crash/ride cymbal and hi-hat. Available in your choice of black, white, or wine red finish with sleek, black hardware and mounts, each drum set also includes a sturdy drum throne, tuning key, drum sticks, and set-up instructions - every piece your lil' drummer needs to start playing right out of the box.
