With your input and our experience, together we can create a snare drum sound that suits your style of playing and feels at home within your drum kit. Whether you need a unique sound or a drum that works well in many musical settings, we have the materials and skills to build it. Ply snare drums are available in all maple (8, 10, or 15 plies), mahogany-poplar, and maple-poplar. All of our ply drums start off as handpicked raw shells. Solid (steam-bent) snare drums are available in maple, walnut, cherry, and ash. These drums start with the finest solid shells made by one of the most respected solid shell makers in the world. Standard features: solid MBD lugs, Trick GS007 throw-off, 2.3mm steel hoops (die-cast or brass hoops available upon request)
The Mayer Bros. lug is built to
last a lifetime. It is machined
from solid aluminum and then
chromed. It retains the look of
a traditional cast lug, but is
more durable. Each lug is
attached to the drum with two hardened-steel screws.
The shell's finish is protected by a rubber grommet.
Any Ply Shell with
Sparkle, Glitter, Pearl,
or Oyster Wrap
Steel, and Titanium
The Trick GS007 is the most durable
and precise snare throw-off. It is
machined and chromed; it matches
the look and feel of MBD lugs. The
tension knob's detents ensure it'll
never back-out, even under heavy
playing. Ball bearings give moving
part smooth action that will last for the life of your drum.
