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.

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.
A super cool snare and prime example of what we are capable of here at Crockett Tubs. Starting with a high quality 5×13″ solid single ply maple steambent with a custom Brilliant Emerald Green flake high gloss finish. Nope, it’snot a wrap!! We specialize in custom unique paint jobs that set us (and you) apart from the rest. Our custom cut edges and snare beds designed specifically for solid steambent shells are “tried and true” to add just the right amount of bearing edge contact so the drums resonate freely yet have enough control for any tuning. This custom painted shell is coupled with DF tube lugs, 3.0mm triple flanged steel hoops and a Trick multi-step throwoff.
This 5×14″ solid single ply steam bent birch snare is custom painted with a customer picked green rainbow flake. Crockett Tubs does not have set finishes or guidelines, we can only list as many color examples as we can photo. We will use any color you can find or do the leg work for you until we find just the right shade, flake size, or type to paint your own custom drum. No holds barred; if it’s out there, we will do it! We started with a green basecoat and layer the green flake that has a rainbow shimmer depending on the on the light, then bury it all with our premium high gloss lacquer. Added all chrome hardware featuring Arch2 double ended snare lugs, die cast hoops and a Trick multi-step throwoff to finish it off.
It’s hard to find a quality steambent solid maple shell with this amount of AAA grade birdseye figuring. This 5.5×14″ single ply shell was an overstock made for a very well known drum company’s limited anniversary snare series. After acquiring the raw shell, we used our signature finish steps to our allow the grain to pop and the figure to dance once under our high gloss clear coat. Coupled with chrome hardware and rounded bearing edges creates this classic snare drum. Hardware includes vintage style chrome over brass tube lugs, die cast hoops, Dunnett R4 throwoff and Remo drumheads. Made for one of our best drum customers, who’s collected over 8 different CT drums thus far.

Here is a highly figured exotic birdseye maple solid steam bent shell in a natural high gloss finish with custom made “Yamaha” style 32ply maple wood hoops with inner and outer plies of exotic birdseye veneer. We picked the highest grade AAA birdseye maple available which is getting harder and harder to find as birdseye figuring only occurs in less than 5% of all maple. Other hardware includes a Trick multi step throwoff, solid chrome over brass tube lugs, puresound wires and Remo drumheads.
A crazy unique wood with unbelievable grain. One of our solid single ply steambent drum shells custom made out of solid sycamore wood with matching sycamore reinforcement rings instead of typical maple rings. This snare drum has a ton of body with a similar tone to maple but a bit deeper note. It has a soft touch with plenty of sensitivity yet plenty of volume. One of our favorite sounding snare drums to date. Finished in our super high gloss clear coat that is buffed to a perfection over natural sycamore. Dressed with all brass hardware, including solid brass full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, P86 vintage throwoff and a matching brass and black plated CT name badge.
