Multisonic Concert Snare Drums

The Multisonic Concert Snare Drum is the ultimate choice for the modern snare drummer. Introduced in 2002, The Multisonic Snare System meets the challenge of repertoire spanning centuries, and allows you to instantly and silently switch combinations of cable and wire, giving the discerning artist complete control over the voicing and character of the drum.

"In my experience, no other drums can compare with what Black Swamp offers. They maintain the highest level of quality and care, while also providing an incredible amount of options. I use their gear daily and I'm never disappointed."​

Shaun Tilburg - Principal Percussion, Phoenix Symphony

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.

  • Black Nickel Plated Finish

  • Die-cast Hoops, Arch Lugs, Stainless Steel Tension Rods

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. Truly a fabulous instrument to add to your drum collection.

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

  • A 4" x 14" is available in the Mercury Series Drums
