Description Additional info Product details
We wanted to make a clean, simple, and elegant snare. We decided to utilize some beautiful blonde curly maple had in the shop to make a snare shell, and some hard rock north American maple for the hoops.

The shell is approximately 3/8" thick, enough mass for a powerful and punchy attack, but thin enough to allow for warm, woody undertones, and a buttery smooth stick-feel.

The bearing edges are an inner cut 45-degree chamfer, and the outer cut is a smooth quarter inch roundover. The round over allows for excellent shell to head contact, as well as a nice warm, fat, round tone. Where the two cuts meet there is a mildly sharp Apex that allows for just the right amount of pleasant overtones, and crispy articulation.

The shell is finished on the entire inside of the drum and on the edges with our house Blended mix of waxes and oils, and the outside has three coats of high-quality nitrocellulose lacquer.

This drum features a fairly deep and wide snare bed. this snare bed should prevent all unwanted snare buzz and give the snare wires a nice cushy pillow to sink down into the snare side head.

I'm sorry that I had to write a small book about this drum. It just felt appropriate. Anyways, if you made it this far congratulations to you... And I very much hope that you consider purchasing this instrument. It was an absolute labor of love building it... And I look very forward to it living its life in the hands of somebody that will put it to good use馃榾
