Aluminum has been used for many years in drum making. We start with a spun aluminum shell which gives us a precise and rigid base. Bearing edges are slightly rounder resulting in a very warm tone from the drum.
The precise construction of the shell along with the reverse flange hoops and hybrid wires gives this series of aluminum snares an aggressive bite with a dry wide open sound. High and low frequencies are well articulated as with most metal snares while the aluminum provides a warmth usually reserved for wooden drums. Available in 14"x5.5" and 14"x6.5" sizes.
Reverse Triple Flange Hoops
Reverse flange hoops increase strength with less mass which allows your snare drum to sound fuller and fatter. The curve of the hoops also allow for longer playing time with less fatigue and punishment to your hands and wrists than with die cast.
Crush Tube Lug
Made from spun brass and finished with a mirror chrome plating. These tube lugs are not only sexy they are extremely durable and will function perfectly for many years to come.
Hybrid Snare Wires
Carbon Steel and Brass snare wires combine for superior sizzle and an alligator strength bite.
