5×14″ Solid Steambent Curly Maple

A highly figured curly maple solid steambent single ply shell with matching curly maple reinforcement rings. This 5×14″ snare is finished in our natural high gloss with all black nickel hardware, including full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops for a full and open tone, and a Trick multi step throwoff. Solid steambent shells have a ton of body and natural wood tone as they utilize less glue and all solid wood compared to standard ply shells. We install a rounded 45 degree bearing edge that produces a rounder, fuller tone and a subtle muffling as solid shells typically have more high end ring and bearing edge eliminates excess ring. A sweet drum that sounds great live or recorded.
