The Staccato drum company was founded in England in the late 70's. As the picture shows, the drums were quite revolutionary for the time.
The drums were made of fiberglass and flared out at the bottom end. The bass drum looked like a pair of pants facing forward.
In fact, the whole kit was designed to project the sound quickly, effectively, and as loudly as possible. This it did quite well.
Eventually, the company fell on hard times as a number of owners tried their hand at making a go of it.
In the early 90's Ayotte - a Canadian drum company - tried to market the line after which it completely disappeared, only to re-emerge recently in all of its original glory.
