Mercury Series Snare Drums

The Mercury Series drums are designed for the ultimate in clarity and articulation. While these drums are excellent for the audition circuit, they are also versatile enough to find regular use on the snare stand. Trust the snare drum experts at Black Swamp Percussion to craft you a snare drum that will serve you throughout your playing career.

Titanium

Titanium is inherently crisp and articulate, but retains a pleasing warmth that will surprise and delight your ears. On a BSP Mercury Titanium, every note your play will speak with amazing clarity, but will have tone and dimension. The 4" x 14" size has an usually large usable tuning range for such a shallow drum.

 

All the hardware holes are cut by laser, and we then craft the bearing edges and satin finish by hand. Truly a fabulous instrument with a huge tuning range to add to your drum collection.
