Black tubes on a solid board of black walnut…What a beauty! 4x14; solid 1ply black walnut; satin wax.
Timeless and beautiful, this snare drum features a traditional strainer and bridge lugs over Charcoal Pearl Wrap. Boom! 5½x14; plied maple; Charcoal Pearl Wrap.
Our second offering like a Hinger Space Tone, but more affordable than the first, produces a fantastic array of sonic colors with which to paint your music! Featuring a plied maple shell, 2.3mm hoops, and an Evans Strata batter head, this one is a little quieter than but less expensive than our first version (which had a figured solid oak shell, DW TrueHoops, and a Kangaroo hide). Sticking with the Pearl 3-way strainer offering lots of wire configurations, this is a fantastic way to sneak up your Bolero, RAWK OUT, and chatter away your Sousa marches! 7x14; plied maple; satin wax.
What a blast it was to make this thing! Based on a Hinger Space Tone Snare, the customer who commissioned this amazing instrument opted for a Solid Curly Red Oak shell, upgraded DW TrueHoops, a Pearl Symphonic 3-way Strainer/Butt (with two vents, one each behind the strainer and butt), and a Kentville Kangaroo Hide batter head. WOW! The drum is incredibly responsive! From the crisp wires for a Symphonic Pops concert to the barky (synthetic) guts for a Sousa March, not to mention the Snappy Snares for a "Normal" snare sound, playing around with the sonic possibilities is a delight!
What about when you split open the shell? I thought it'd sound deeper, never having played a real Space Tone before to know what to expect. Two things: LOUDER and much more snare response. The fundamental tone doesn't really deepen much, but it's like taking off the blanket you didn't know was there. FUN! 7x14; solid 1ply curly red oak; shiny wax.
We had fun playing this snare today. Listen to those sweet SOLID SNARE tones!
Resurrecting a color we haven't used for 16 years, this "Busy-Grained" maple snare features a 2-layer color we call Azteca Gold. Takes a little longer to make, but comes out way cooler than the pictures can show! 5½x12; plied maple; satin wax.
Just...just...a 16" snare is just COOL! You can goosh with it, or pound through the mix as you like. Dialing in this one, which has Tube Lugs, Re-Rings, and a vertical ply of Cherry, is an absolute blast! 5⅔x16; plied shell: interior split maple, 3 plies poplar, exterior vertical ply of cherry + 1" 6-ply re-rings; satin wax.
# 6/6 of our "Half Size Project," I mean, who wouldn't want 8 inches of 16" diameter dressed in classy black-on-purple? Imagine how fat your ballads would sound! 8x16; plied maple; satin wax.
# 5/6 of our "Half Size Project," 15 inches of Snare Gooshiness will fatten any groove! 7½x15; plied maple; satin wax.
# 4/6 of our "Half Size Project," we just had to do something with spikes! A one-of-a-kind project featuring Lugs you wouldn't wanna hug, this drum cracks with 15 plies of maple and double 45° Bearing Edges. 7x14; plied maple; satin wax.
