Introducing the Majestic Prophonic concert bass drum
This impressive concert bass drum from Majestic features an innovative shell construction, including 2 interior walnut, 4 exterior maple walls, and a walnut layer shell. The dramatic depth of the ultra-thin maple/walnut Prophonic bass drum is intensified by rounded bearing edges and the low-profile SSB suspension system. The included suspension ring promotes a fuller projection and maximises resonance.
Fitted with a Remo Fibre-skin 3 head, it is design to withstand the rigours of regular performance whilst still producing the quality of tone expected from all Majestic instruments. It is finished with a dark coffee shell finish to give an attractive, professional look.
With an extensive range of sizes available, the Prophonic series bass drum is ideal for school concert bands and ensembles to professional orchestras and recording percussionists.
Please note this drum does NOT include a stand. If you require a stand, a concert stand is supplied with the MPB Prophonic bass drum models or a field stand is supplied (in a limited range of sizes) with the MFPB Prophonic bass drum range.
Majestic is a brand of thoughtfully designed instruments for the professional, the educator, and today’s percussion student utilizing carefully constructed ideas born from both traditional percussion instrument heritage and a culture of innovation. The family firm was founded in 1921, supplying organs, pianos and wind instruments with the production of percussion following shortly after.
In 1960 the Majestic brand name was introduced, starting with drum kits which were prevalent among rock bands in the Netherlands. Orchestral and marching percussion soon became the corner stone of the brand, with timpani, marching drum and tuned percussion becoming areas of speciality for Majestic.
To this day product development, engineering, and production are overseen by family members and every model must adhere to stringent standards of craftsmanship and performance.
Please note: all large tuned percussion instruments such as xylophones, marimbas, and vibes etc. are delivered boxed and require assembly.
