We name all of our snare drums after parts of songs so of course we had to hold true with this one and name it the Prechorus.  The Prechorus is the drum that you love playing and the classic tones keep you coming back for more.  It’s also the most affordable snare in our lineup.  Made from a 6.5×14 spun aluminum snare shell with a center bead, tube lugs and all the upgrades.  Trick throw, 25-strand German snare wires, Evans HD Dry coated batter head, Evans 300 snare side head, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops.  Our aim here is to create the snare drum that gives you classic tones and perfect consistency.  From college group on a Tuesday to Sunday mornings in a huge sanctuary.  Those warm, classic tones, are what we’ve all come to know and love from an aluminum shell, and this one sounds amazing.  Tune it high, medium, or low.  Play it for worship, in a club, or for a live recording.  Classic versatility and amazing tone in a semi-custom package.  Choose your hardware and throw color, without having to pay custom prices.

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.

This snare drum comes as a 10-lug construction to make it as versatile as possible.  For a drum this size, we find that 10 lugs gives you the perfect tuning range while still keeping the drum versatile so you can tune it low or crank it high.  If for some reason you are wanting this drum in an 8-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.

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.
