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. The new aluminum shell support ring allows use of a kevlar snare head without compromising the warranty. 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.
This revolutionary marching snare drum concept really takes the term "Free Floater" seriously. The thin ply maple shell is completely suspended on both the batter and snare side for the ultimate in projection. The secret is in the lightweight magnesium frame that supports the shell and secures the drumheads for unparalleled tuning and high tensioning to achieve that exacting articulation. The USA Free Floater is the "Ultimate Suspended Action" Marching Snare Drum, made in the USA! Available with 4740 Omni T or 2740 Vest Carrier.
For use with high-tension Kevlar heads, the SFZ marching snare drums are designed for precise articulation, powerful projection, and durable performance. The 13" x 11" sizes works great for indoor marching applications.
14"x 12" MTS, Multi-Timbre Snare design, offers multiple tonal possibilities in one drum. A separate snare assembly underneath the batter head gives you more distinct sounds in one drum, superior sensitivity at lower dynamic levels, and additional "zones" of tone color on the batter head.
