The birch shell model features extended, brass cable snares that balance sensitivity with clear articulation at all dynamic levels. Perfect for all-around concert applications, the two steel shell models use coiled wire snares made of hard, high-carbon steel. These snares offer bright, delicate response and make sustained, legato press roles easy to play.

The colors and finishes shown may vary from those on the actual products.
