These new UnionX Recording Series Snare Drums are as unique as the drumming of Sean Carey, both in-studio and on-stage, supporting both his solo work as well as Justin Vernon's projects and Bon Iver. Walnut ply construction produces a unique sound that is rich and warm, yet powerful.

The Sean Carey models utilize an 8-ply, 10mm shell with inner and outer plies of walnut, plus 6 inner plies of maple, with 45° bearing edges. Chrome vintage-style tube lugs add a very classic look. The die-cast hoops on top and bottom offer solid, accurate tuning. The Nickelworks snare strainer and Puresound snare wires team up to provide effortless variations of snare response.

Two shell sizes are available, a 14" x 5.5" and a deeper 14" x 7". Both can be tuned easily to accommodate both live and recording situations. And both feature a beautiful, high gloss natural walnut finish.

"I like my Union snare a lot, it sounds great, has great snap and good body. I am very attached to this drum and find it very versatile, both on-stage and in-studio."  
~ Sean Carey

This drum has a very crisp attack and great cut. There is no problem with volume with this snare. The die-cast hoops and shell design bring a lot of volume and attack through the mix. For a more subtle sound, you would probably have to put a thicker head on, but even with the standard head, the tone is pretty full. The parts on this drum are nice - Remo USA heads, Puresound wires, and a nice strainer. The finish looks great and the tube lugs are smooth as can be.
