Exclusive Air Seal system ensures a solid, consistent round shell allowing the augmented maple shell depth to provide a warm tone with excellent presence and projection that blends with any ensemble.
Improved Snare Response
Additional air holes increase articulation and snare response without reducing volume and improves the player's performance experience.
New Top Hoop Shape
A larger radius at the top of the rim enhances rimshot tone and reduces stick damage.
Streamlined Tube Lug and Gravity Guard
Modeled after our concert snare drums, the lug post design, made of lightweight aluminum, creates a modern look and improves durability, while the revised gravity guard prevents the tension rod from slipping.
Aluminum Insert Ring
A snare-side, aluminum insert ring is standard and maintains stable pitch even when high-tension tuning is used.
The top head is a Remo White Max type, and the bottom head is a Remo Clear Ambassador.
