This drum has a hard rock maple shell with a 9-wire strand top-head snare attachment that provides immediate, crisp articulation. There is no need to individually tune these 9 strands and there is a vertical and horizontal fine tune. This is a fast, light and responsive drum, perfect for indoor marching percussion and theatrical presentation, or for a marching band with a small wind ensemble, where balance is critical. This drum has an amazing gutty sound and projects well. It is very light at 9 pounds.
This drum has an 8 ply thin-ply hard rock maple shell with a precision-cut snare bed and snare strainers on both top and bottom heads.

Snare drum hardware comes standard with silver powder coated hoops, collar and tension casings. Also comes with Remo Falam head and J-bar mounts. Carrier sold separate.
