About This Listing

Here we have a N&C Horizon series in the incredibly striking Cairo Blue Holographic Sparkle, no pictures can do the depth of the sparkle justice. Everyone who see's this finish complements the quality of the finishing. This is one of the finest sparkles we have ever seen period! The kit is in bop set up featuring a 12 x 8 rack tom, a 14 x 14 floor tom and an 18 x 14 bass drum.

Noble and Cooley started in 1854 and are now being ran by the 6th and 7th generations of the Cooley Family. By the mid 1980's N&C were in the beginning stages of leading what would become the 'Custom Drum Movement', offering new pioneering approaches to drum design and finishing. Products started to come thick and fast such as the Solid Shell Kits & Snares (SS Series) , the Star series drums which probably were the worlds first short depth toms and the Horizon series offered up the original hybrid shell, all ideas way ahead of their time that are now imitated by many other brands. All these drums offered more innovations such as nodal point mounting, precise bearing edge design, symmetrical venting and furniture grade finishing.

If you haven't come across N&C drum sets, you probably have seen, played or heard one of their Snare Drums. Many professional drummers and recording studios have at least 1 or 2 N&C snares in their inventory. N&C offer some of the worlds finest Solid Shell, Ply Shell and Alloy Shells available, they also made a very famous snare in collaboration with Zildjian in the early 90's now in high demand on the vintage market.

The company is still located in Granville, Massachusetts, all their drums are hand made, hand finished and are built to last. Whether you buy a Kit or a Snare, Noble and Cooley drums will deliver pure joy! The way they play, the way they sound, the way they look, even the way N&C pack them, they are very special. These are drums from the worlds best drum makers that will hand down to future generations and continue what already is a great American Story.

The Present:

Noble and Cooley have recently opened up their range, whist still continuing to offer the CD Maple series which has been around since the early 80's and they have also re-introduced the Horizon series which is the kit we have here, they have also introduced the new Walnut Ply kit.

The Horizon was originally introduced in the 80's and the company dropped it out of the range in the mid 90's. The kits have always maintained a legendary status because of their Maple/Mahogany hybrid shell, remember in the 80's this was new territory. The shells are constructed horizontally which helps them to resonate more uniformly like the N&C steam bent shells. The inner mahogany offered throughout all the sizes adds a darker tone to the drums, these drums sound great live and in the studio.
