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.
