5.5×14″ Walnut Stave Snare

What do you do with some left over walnut boards? Well, build a cool snare drum of course! A killer little snare drum that is great for recording, jazz, soft rock, etc. It has a drier tone than maple and a touch darker. Walnut is typically more mid focused as it is a much softer wood than maple which has extreme highs and lows. Everyone has loved this snare in our back stock and hopefully we can keep it long enough to make a video demo. This 5.5×14″ solid stave shell is only 3/8″ thick to help add more resonance and body. The drum is finished in our natural satin oil and shows off the amazing figure of this unique walnut, and take note of the second picture showcasing the sapwood walnut sections which is a lighter color. All chrome hardware includes full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, and an RCK throwoff.
