This Drum Gear SnareWorks snare drum is made of phosphor bronze. One of the more expensive metals but it also has a very nice sound.
With regards to tone, the bronze has some of the warmth of brass drums but it is not quite as soft. The bronze gives you a fantastic "cut" in your backbeat and a tone fulness in the drum that complements the warmness very well.
This drum moves air and it gives you the impression of punching the listeners right in the solar plexus with the sound, which is always a cool feeling!
Different music styles are no issue for this drum as it can be used for everything from death metal to jazz. This bronze snare drum functions at all dynamic levels and will constantly inspire you as you play - regardless of being tuned high, medium, or low.
You can always equip your drum with a new set of rims. There are 5 sets to choose from. All of the rims change the tone of the drum.
But do not worry - the included 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops that come with the drum sound amazing and will turn your next gig into a dream!
Note: The triple-flanged hoops (2.3mm) that are fitted as standard are included regardless of whichever other rims you choose for your snare.
