Some jobs call for heavy duty equipment. This drum bludgeons its way through the din with extreme volume and a distinct rounded tone.

If you are looking for a snare that can roar like a lion or whisper like a kitten without breaking your budget, look no further. The hammered brass shell looks stunning and sounds amazing; from gentle pianissimo passages to flat out hammering, this snare can do it all. With the dual snare tensioners, you can dial in your signature sound from extra tight and crispy to rajun Cajun jambalaya! I don't really know what that means, but it sounds as cool as this snare does. Very easy to get a ringy pop, a solid crack, or a cannon blast with a few simple turns of a drum key. It's tasteful and articulate for lighter music and loud enough to cut through the most metal din without choking or sacrificing the quality of it's sound. I test drove a bunch of comparable models by other brands (some of which were noticeably more expensive...) and kept coming back to this one. Give one a try and see if it's the sound and feel you're looking for.
