One of the Best Snare Drums on the Market Today

By Caleb Moseley from Chesapeake, VA on 2/16/2011 10:58:34 PM

This thing is amazing. God sees this and smiles. It sounds phenomenal (with the right heads) and will take the most beating out of any snare drum on the market. The best part is that it's all but weatherproof. Raining outside? No problem. the carbonply enables to not be affected by rain, humidity, snow, Gatorade and water bottle explosions and any sort of liquid that might happen to come with it. In addition to being very water resistant, it's significant;y lighter than its all wood cousins, about 1/3 lighter. That can make all the difference on hot summer band camp days. I highly recommend this drum and any drums of the carbonply family. They look and sound fantastic. You can never go wrong with black drums, it always has a clean look. there is one thing ou need to know about the snare drum: the shell "floats" between the two rims, it is not attached to the tension rods in anyway. So, if you take the bottom rim off the shell WILL fall out. Just a heads up.
