CSS-A Series Delivers crisp, clear sound in any performance environment

Steel Shells

Steel shells are used for their sharp attack and clear sound.

Shell Depth

The lineup includes two shell sizes: the 5-inch CSS-1450A and the 6 1/2-inch CSS-1465A.

Coil Snares

Coil snares that produce a bright sound have been used in the CSS-A Series. Coil snares also sustain longer than straight snares, making it easier to play even-sounding rolls and generally providing easier playability for beginners.

Q-Type Strainer Release

Compact and easy to operate, the Q-type strainer lets you tighten or release your snares quickly and quietly.

REMO Heads

REMO Coated Ambassador drumheads provide a bright tone.

Three-Piece Tube Lugs

A unique, three-piece tubular lug is used to reduce shell contact and improve resonance, thus enhancing the natural vibration and tone of the shell.


DynaHoops constructed of 2.3 millimeter-thick steel contributes to fast, well-defined attack.

Ring Mute

The supplied ring mute can be used to dampen overtones when a more clearly defined tone is required.

New Badge Design

A sophisticated badge design adds a touch of class to the new series.
