Discover A&F Drum Co.
Austin, Texas-based drum manufacturer A&F (Antoun & Family) Drum Co. was founded in 1996 by studio drummer Ramy Antoun, who brought his passion for drums to designing innovative percussion instruments, like this 6.5x14” A&F Raw Brass snare drum, which has been treated to look and sound like the treasured vintage drums he discovered during his years as a studio and touring musician! The A&F Raw Brass snare has been cut, rolled, welded, and sanded by hand with exclusive raw brass shells and raw brass hoops, hand-cut bearing edges, and snare beds, then treated with an exclusive patina formula to jump-start the aging process.
