8 Even-Ply Maple Shell

Maple is the ideal choice for a concert snare drum due to its range of frequency response and warmth in sound quality.

Our exclusively manufactured 6-ply and 8 even-ply 100% Maple wood shells have a smooth even texture that remains durable under a wide range of conditions and accepts a variety of rich lustrous finishes. This highly respected acoustic wood offers a wide dynamic range and a well-balanced overtone response. Full-bodied low frequencies, with an even balance of high and mid-tones, have made this shell the all-around accepted premium material in the acoustic drum industry.

SR505 Triad Silent Strainer

The newly redesigned SR505 Triad Silent Strainer includes new Captive Adjustment Touchpoints and mechanical improvements of the three independently adjustable snare assemblies. New full, wrap-around guitar wire snare assemblies allow for ultimate sensitivity and tonal expression in the softest range of your playing. In addition, a new Quick Release Snare mounting system maintains your individual snare adjustment settings on all three assemblies for fast and easy snare head replacement and maintenance.

Graduated Tension Snares

A proprietary combination of three unique snare sets (coated cable, stainless cable & snappy wire) using both graduated and even tensioning, offers seamless timbre overlapping and ultra-smooth dynamic transition, plus a greatly extended dynamic and sensitivity range. All snares can be effortlessly changed by simply loosening the adjuster and one drum key rod.

Classic Tube Lugs

Classic style and professional performance lugs allow for maximum shell resonance.
