Snare Drum Features

ply-Maple Models

Maple shells offer an excellent balance of characteristics that have made it a workhorse in concert and orchestral music for over a century. Our bearing edges are shaped to bring out the natural body, warmth, and clarity that maple has to offer.

Titanium Models

Titanium is inherently crisp and articulate, but retains a pleasing warmth that will surprise and delight your ears. These drums "play deep" and have an exceptional tuning range. All the hardware holes are cut by laser, and we then craft the bearing edges and satin finish by hand.
