SoundArt Snare Drums

SoundArt Concert Snare Drums offer straight ahead concert performance for musicians at all levels. The SoundArt Strainer was the first trio snare system directly integrated into the throwoff, giving players accurate and unprecedented control of snare unit tension. The cable and wire units engage simultaneously to provide a full, responsive snare voice throughout the dynamic spectrum. 

The SoundArt Snare System

The SoundArt system with Arch Throw works as a cohesive unit, blending the 3 snare units together for a consistent tonal and dynamic response at all playing levels.

Snare Drum Features

SoundArt Shell Options

Black Swamp Soundart ply-Maple Snare Drum

7-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 Soundart 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 Soundart 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
