Sakae Celestial drums are some of the best I have ever played. I think they well put together works of art. Blah, hyperbole. No seriously if someone can find a set buy him or her, as Im almost sure that Sakae is out of business. I like them better than a Yamaha Phx. I think they are Sakes version of the Phx. The drum build is some of the best I have ever seen. The Mappa Burl is beautifully book mashed and rivals and in some ways surpasses Sonors Veneer drums. Each drum as a different shell thickness, bearing edges and in some cases different bearing edges top and bottom. 6 ply shells 4 ply maple and 2 outer ply of bubinga. This is more for the people who are looking for info on these drums.
