A solid steam bent single ply shell of exotic rosewood drenched in our super high gloss with custom made Arc lugs, single flanged chrome over brass hoops, and a Nickelworks throwoff. We built this snare for 2010 Chicago Custom & Vintage Show contest held by DrumFoundry, where this drum competed with several others and judged by esteemed professional drummer Gavin Harrison from the influential band Porcupine Tree. This drum finished 2nd place and we were proud our drum got sent in to the show.
The single flanged hoops with clips opens up the drum a bit with a soft touch and deeper tone. The hoops along with the solid rosewood shell create a vintage tone that has killer dynamics!
