Concert Snare Drums

Philharmonic Cast Aluminum

Full-bodied tone, with a higher overall pitch response than traditional maple, at 3mm thick, our exclusive precision-milled Philharmonic Cast Aluminum shell snare drum is one of the thickest metal drums you’ll find. Aluminum is a relatively soft metal and provides the warm, round, full-bodied resonance of a wood shell snare. However, it also possesses the snap, volume, and projection provided by a metal snare. No other concert snare drum can offer this perfect compromise between wood and metal. Since the Philharmonic PHA is a milled cast aluminum shell, its bearing edges are precision-cut and perfect every time.

3mm Cast Aluminum Shell

At 3mm thick, our exclusive precision-milled cast aluminum shell snare drum is one of the thickest metal drums you’ll find. Aluminum is a relatively soft metal and provides the warm, round, full-bodied resonance of a wood shell snare. However, it also possesses the snap, volume, and projection provided by a metal snare. No other concert snare drum can offer this perfect compromise between wood and metal. Since the Philharmonic PHA is a milled cast aluminum shell, its bearing edges are precision-cut and perfect every time. This provides ease of tuning and perfect head seating around the entire circumference of the drum.

SR-505 Triad Silent Strainer

The newly redesigned SR-505 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.

Remo Diplomat Renaissance

The Remo Diplomat Renaissance snare head features 1-ply of 7.5-mil specially treated film, providing a textured surface for a warm, dark tone with a soft feel. 

Natural Aluminum Finish

PHA Series drums are finished in polished natural milled aluminum with Nickel hardware.
