4×14″ Solid Walnut Symphonic Snare

Here is a cool snare we built for another percussionist for the San Francisco Symphony. It is a solid single ply steambent all walnut shell with matching walnut reinforcement rings for a darker, warmer tone. The 4×14″ size leaves a drier, articulated tone and extreme sensitivity paired with our perfect sharp bearing edges and custom cut snare beds to fit the triple snare wires & cords. All custom hardware including double ended chrome over solid brass tube lugs, single flanged hoops with clips, and a Triad strainer and butt system. A high gloss natural finish really classes up this unique walnut drum.

A Custom Painted Quilted Maple Shell

We did this paint job for another builder. We have the expertise to outsource to for our extreme paint jobs and much more. Any paint, wrap, edge, drill, etc. Let us know how we can help even if it’s a small job to a complete build. This was a very rare heavy quilted maple solid single ply steambent shell that had amazing figuring and grain pattern. Perfect for one of our paint finishes. The color is an ocean blue candy (transparent) high gloss that dances with the amazing grain figure of the color maple.

New Sleeved Nylon Washers Now Comes Standard On All Drums

We have been using these new nylon washers for the past year or so. A great upgrade that also shows how we at Crockett Tubs observe every single little detail critically. We would just like to shine some spotlight on these little guys. It’s one of those things that is such a simple idea yet makes a ton of difference. These washers are high quality nylon that protect the plating on hoops and eliminate any metal to metal contact. They allow a smoother and more accurate head tuning, and you can actually tune them lower without any annoying buzzing from loose tension rods. They are available in black and clear white, and also available in 16 custom colors as special order.
