Sound Characteristics 

  • Poplar is known for its balanced sound characteristics. It offers a warm tone with a balanced mix of highs, mids, and lows. This versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of musical styles and settings.

Projection and Volume:

  • Poplar is known for its sensitivity, meaning it responds well to dynamic playing. It can produce a wide range of dynamics, from soft and subtle to loud and powerful, making it suitable for expressive playing styles.


  • While not as dense or hard as some other woods, poplar is still durable enough to withstand the rigors of regular drumming. With proper care and maintenance, poplar drum shells can last for many years.




The SE Flyer low mass round turret drum lugs offer a balance of functionality, aesthetics, and lightweight construction. This optimizes the sound and appearance of these drums.

Low Mass:

  • These lugs are designed to be lightweight, which helps in reducing the overall weight of the drum and allows for more resonance from the shell. Low mass lugs are often preferred by drummers who prioritize maximizing the natural sound of the drum.

Round Turret Design:

  • The SE FLYER lugs feature a cylindrical or round turret shape. This design provides a classic look that is visually appealing on the drum shell. The round shape also allows for easy attachment of tension rods and drumheads.

Direct-To-Shell Tom Mounting

The SE Flyer drum sets include a direct-to-shell drum mounting bracket. This means attaching hardware components, such as tom mounts, directly onto the drum shell itself, rather than using separate mounting brackets or hardware. This method has become increasingly popular in drum design. Overall, direct-to-shell drum mounting offers several advantages, including improved resonance, stability, aesthetics, customization options, and ease of setup.


    Snare Throw off


    The new side arm throw-off features a lever that players can manipulate to adjust the position of the snare wires. Moving the lever engages or disengages the snare wires from the bottom drumhead. This design is made for quick and efficient adjustments. Players can easily switch between different snare wire tensions or engage/disengage the snare sound rapidly during a performance.

      Triple Flanged Hoops


      SE Flyer series drums include triple-flanged drum hoops, also known as triple-flanged rims or triple-flanged hoops. These hoops are characterized by their three-fold design, featuring three outwardly flanged edges. They play a significant role in providing structural support to the drumhead and influencing the drum’s overall sound.

      Here are some key features regarding the triple flanged hoops.


      • Triple-flanged drum hoops are made from steel. The metal construction provides durability and structural integrity to the hoop.


      • Triple-flanged hoops are versatile and are used on the toms and snare drum. Their design allows for flexibility in tuning and a wide range of playing styles.


      • Triple-flanged hoops are generally lighter than die-cast hoops, which can impact the drums overall sustain and resonance. The lighter weight allows for more drumhead movement and can contribute to a more open and dynamic sound.


        • Drummers often appreciate triple-flanged hoops for their ability to produce clear and distinct rimshots. The design allows the drumstick to make solid contact with the hoop, creating a sharp and pronounced sound.

        Tuning Range:

        • The triple-flanged design provides a broader tuning range compared to die-cast hoops. Drummers can achieve various tensions and tones by adjusting the tuning screws across the three flanged edges.

        Gull Wing Spurs


        SE Flyer series drums feature gull wing bass drum spurs. They are named for their distinctive shape, which resembles the wings of a bird, with a wide base that narrows towards the end. These types of spurs are commonly found on vintage kits but apply to any bass drum. This adds to the vintage feel and aesthetic of the SE Flyer series. Here are some key features and benefits of gull wing bass drum spurs:


        • Gull wing spurs provide excellent stability for the bass drum, ensuring that it remains securely in place during performances. The wide base of the spurs distributes weight evenly across the drum shell, preventing it from sliding or shifting while being played.


        • Gull wing bass drum spurs are adjustable, allowing drummers to customize the angle and length of the spurs to suit their playing preferences and the surface on which the drum is placed. This adjustability ensures optimal contact between the spurs and the ground, maximizing stability.

        Quick Deployment:

        • Gull wing spurs are designed to be deployed quickly and easily, making setup and teardown of the drum kit more efficient.


        • Gull wing bass drum spurs are constructed from steel ensuring durability and longevity even under heavy use. They are built to withstand the rigors of touring and regular performances without bending or breaking.

          Bass Drum Tom Mount w/ Boom Arm


          The SE Flyer drum sets include a bass drum mounting post with three slots. This type of hardware component is used to attach toms and other percussion instruments to the bass drum. This mounting post includes three slots arranged in a triangular pattern, allowing for versatile positioning of the attached instrument. Also included is a cymbal boom arm.


            Bass Drum Lift


            SE Flyer drum sets include a bass drum lift, also known as a bass drum riser or bass drum cradle. This is a hardware accessory designed to elevate the bass drum off the floor and improve its resonance and projection. It typically consists of a sturdy frame or platform that supports the bottom of the bass drum, lifting it several inches above the ground. They are commonly used for smaller bass drums.

              The SE Flyer series drum kits feature Remo UT coated drumheads. These drumheads are designed to provide a balance of durability, tone, and feel, making them suitable for a wide range of drumming styles and applications.

              Coated Design:

              • Remo UT coated drumheads feature a coated surface, which adds a layer of texture to the drumhead. This coating helps to control overtones, reduce unwanted ring, and produce a warmer, more focused sound compared to clear drumheads.

              Durable Construction:

              • UT coated drumheads are constructed using a single-ply of 10-mil Mylar film, making them durable and capable of withstanding heavy playing.


              • These drumheads are suitable for a wide range of musical genres and playing styles. Whether you’re playing jazz, rock, pop, or any other genre, Remo UT coated drumheads can provide the versatility and flexibility needed to achieve the desired sound.

              Warm Tone:

              Responsive Feel:

              • Remo UT coated drumheads offer a responsive playing feel, allowing drummers to achieve dynamic range and expressiveness in their playing. The coated surface provides a slightly tacky feel, which can enhance stick rebound and control.

              Easy Tuning:

              • These drumheads are easy to tune and maintain, allowing drummers to quickly achieve their desired sound without extensive tweaking. The coated surface helps to grip the drumstick, facilitating precise tuning adjustments.
