We wanted to create a drum that was visually striking but sounded like a million bucks. This is what we came up with.
We started with one of our favorite wood species, Calico Walnut. We made a solid Stave shell that is about 3/4" of an inch thick. Next week inlaid a beautiful piece of classy White Marine Pearl around the center of the drum. Finally we decked it out with our Flawless ultra high gloss lacquer.
You can't beat the warm, round, buttery feel of Walnut. It makes for an absolute back beat machine. Not to mention that we cut our favorite edges on this snare featuring a 45-degree inner cut with a quarter inch radius roundover router cut. This allows tons of energy transfer from the head to the Shell to really bring out the tone of the Walnut.
We dressed her up with all gold Hardware. Featuring low mass single point lugs, 2.3 mm Hoops, diecast butt plate and air vent, a vintage style strainer, an antique brass hhg badge, 42 strand snare wires, and our proprietary internal tone control mechanism with matching Walnut knob.
If you're looking for a Workhorse snare drum that will turn a lot of Heads, this drum is the one for you.
