We call it the Chorus because its the one piece we can’t live without. Made from a black nickel brass 8×14 snare shell with a center bead, tube lugs and all the upgrades. Trick throw, 42-strand German snare wires, Remo P4 coated batter head, Remo hazy ambassador snare side head, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops. Our aim here is to create the snare drum you need every Sunday. Those deep, dark tones, with plenty of responsiveness to cut through the mix. Power smash this thing, ghost note it, rimshot the heck out it; versatility in a big snare drum.
This snare drum comes as an 8-lug construction to make it easier to tune low. Without getting too deep on lug count and how it affects drum sound, the basic principle is that fewer lugs helps you achieve a lower pitch sound from your drum. We think this is incredibly important for deeper snare shells like this one! If for some reason you are wanting this drum in a 10-lug or 12-lug construction, we can do that for you. Please contact us and we can get you set up for a separate invoice since the charge will be $50 more.
Chrome and black hardware configurations come with a Trick 3-position radial throw and butt plate while brass hardware comes with an Inde throw and butt plate.
Our drums are all semi-custom, letting you choose options for hardware and finishes. Because of this all of our drums have a build time of 3-5 weeks. We do everything possible to get drums built and sent your way quickly but please keep in mind that we are a small shop and we process builds in the order they are received. Occasionally, we have some of our best-selling models on hand and can process orders quicker than normal. Please contact us to see what we have on hand and ready if you’re in need of a rush order.
Flat rate shipping of $45 per order for all US customers. Order multiple drums and save since the flat rate is order based and will not change based on number of drums in your order. We offer free shipping for orders placed by churches and schools of ministry. For this option please contact us and we will supply you with a free shipping code once we have confirmed you in our system. Must be shipped to the church address listed online, no exceptions.
