This listing is for a one-of-a-kind DrumPickers 14x6.5” Custom Single Ply Heritage Snare Drum in Tiger Stripe Maple. This new drum just falls short of producing magic…
The single-ply, steam bent maple shell uses maple reinforcement rings to add to that “Radio King” tone. It also features some absolutely key points of interest including:
*Trick 3-Point Strainer system.
*Machined Stainless Steel tension rods (instead of the typical cast steel tension rods typically on most drums). This insures smooth tuning throughout the life of the drum.
*2.3mm Slingerland style stick-saver hoops (instead of most often used 1.6mm triple flanged hoops), thereby maintaining the tuning of the drum without choking it like die-cast hoops can, or bending like 1.6mm hoops.
*maple reinforcement rings.
*German tensiled 20-Strand snare wires.
*Cross-tube lugs occupying less metal mass on the snare.
If you’re after an heirloom snare drum that you’ll keep for a lifetime, this is that snare drum.
