Snare Drum Features

Multisonic Shell Options

Black Swamp Multisonic ply-Maple Snare Drum

Ply Maple

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.

  • 5" x 14" and 6.5" x 14" Sizes

  • Concert Black or Cherry Rosewood Finish

Black Swamp Multisonic Titanium Snare Drum

Titanium Elite

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.

  • 5.5" x 14", 6.5" x 14", and 7" x 14" Sizes

  • Brushed Satin Finish

Black Swamp Multisonic Medallion Brass Snare Drum

Medallian Brass

Brass is a commanding voice in your snare drum arsenal. It's bright and very sensitive, with a character that can cut through the thickest orchestral textures. However it still retains a measure of tone due to the thin wall and flanged bearing edges. 

  • 5" x 14" and 6.5" x 14" Sizes

  • Black Nickel or Torch Patina Finish

Black Swamp Multisonic Unibody Snare Drum

Unibody Steam Bent Solid Shell

Our Unibody™ Solid Shells are crafted in our own facility using hand-picked prime lumber. Solid shells have an added dimension of body and sensitivity not found in other types of wood shells. Play a BSP solid shell snare, and watch your colleagues turn their head!
