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.

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.

This custom veneer is man-made from actual wood to create this psychedelic look. The 7×14″ all birch shell with custom veneer is naturally finished under our rich high gloss clear coat. Hardware includes black nickel parts with full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, and a Trick multi step throwoff. Great focused pop and bottom end out of this unique snare drum.

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.
