3pc Blue Glass Glitter Kit Perfect For The Live Playing Drummer

This sweet 3pc Players Series kit is featured in the ever popular blue glass glitter wrap. This color wrap always gets the most compliments as a great shade of blue, and brilliantly sparkles under the lights. Our Players Series shells are slighter thicker to add increased volume and projection while playing live over heavy guitar riffs and huge amps. They have plenty of tone and don’t choke under heavy hitters. This kit has an 18×22″ kick, 9×12″ rack and a 16×16″ floor tom for a versatile 3pc setup. All Crockett Tubs standard parts are featured, including 1″ mini tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, pro spurs, round hinged brackets, 12″ DSS suspension tom mount, die cast bass claws and Remo drumheads.

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.
