DrumCraft, the acoustic drum brand revived in 2022 by European retailer, Thomann has announced the release of its new Series 3 Double Bass kit.

The new addition joins the existing Standard and Studio configurations on offer from DrumCraft’s entry-level range, adding more choice for those who want a dual-bass drum setup at an affordable price point.

But as well as the additional bass drum, The DrumCraft Series 3 Double Bass configuration also expands the tom count, comprising the same sizes as the Standard five-piece kit, but with the 14”x12” floor tom from its Studio configuration also included. Of course, it's offered in one, metal-friendly finish: Black.
