Bubinga is a highly figured hard tropical timber with a predominantly straight interlocking grain, widely chosen for its looks as well as its bright response.
Due to its density Bubinga maintains balanced resonance throughout all ranges of tuning and has an underlying richness and depth of tone that makes it a popular choice with professional drummers. Bubinga shells are 7 ply. Each tom has two die cast Natal badges featuring the 'Sun' logo. The bass drum also features a wood I.D. badge.
Shallower drums or "short stacked drums" have gained in popularity in recent years due to their cutting sound with great attack. Shallow drums are also popular as it allows drummers to keep their setups low and flat.
Natal was originally conceived in 1958 by distinguished British percussionist Alan Sharp who, unable to find the exact instruments he wanted to play, sourced their individual parts and assembled them himself. His bongos were of such high quality that orders began to flood in, eventaully leading to the foundation of the Natal Percussion Company in 1965. Natal is fully committed to producing drums and hardware of the highest standard of quality, and Natal percussion is used by top artists including Brian Downey (Thin Lizzy) and Ian Matthews (Kasabian).
