Custom Green Rainbow Flake Solid Snare

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.

5.5×14″ Solid Shell AAA Grade Birdseye Maple Snare

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.

5.5×14″ Polished Aluminum Bling!

Just got done taping up the box for this drum being shipped to Canada. It is our Aluminum Series snare drum in a high polished mirror like finish with all chrome hardware for the cleanest silvery bling possible! Our Aluminum Series drums are 1/8″ (3mm) thick shells with a perfectly cut fully rounded bearing edge that helps to cut down on the typical overtones of metal snares. Aluminum shells are about the driest sounding of all metal shells and has a chunky tone. The added heavy die cast hoops focus the shell further and add explosive rimshots. A very aggressive metal snare with a broad tuning range and versatility. This drum is fitted with all chrome hardware, including a Trick multi step throwoff, die cast hoops, full length tube lugs and a 42 strand German Brass wire set.
