This specialty snare drum is designed to offer warmth, volume and throaty attack in one package. The hybrid shell is an offshoot of the patented Edge design (U.S. Patent #5377576) and features a heavy-gauge cast brass ring press-fit on top of a 10-ply Maple and Mahogany plied shell with VLT (Vertical Low Timber) technology. The result is a snare drum with plenty of bite, combined with ample bottom end response. Other standard features include 3.0 True Hoops, True Pitch Tuning, MAG Throw-Off System with 3P butt plate and DW Heads by Remo USA.
This drum is finished in natural lacquer with black nickel hardware. This snare drum also includes a FREE Drum Seeker case by Humes and Berg.
This drum is a store demo. It was never sold to a customer but some of the employees have used it at gigs and recording sessions to get a true understanding on how awesome this drum is. It would rate a 9.5 out of 10 as there is a small blemish on the batter side hoop from rim shots. Other than that this drum is perfect.
