14x7 (7mm thick) Snare Drum finished in our vertical Ebony Macassar with high glaze gloss. This Snare Drum features our single point lugs, Trick strainer and Puresound snare wires.
The sound is great at all tuning ranges from low to top. The vertical grain shell construction allows the vibrations to run along the grain down to the bottom head much faster than across the grain on the usual mass production shells. This gives us a clearer and more focused sound with great sensitivity for ghost notes and brush work.
This picture shows how we have bookmatched together our selected Macassar and is then pressed onto a Mahogany to insure that when we go to form the drum (with this as part of the shells construction) there are no air bubbles that will effect our finish and gives a much cleaner bearing edge than a ready made shell that has been wrapped in a veneer.
