Snareweight #5 Solid Brass Snare Dampening System w/Insert & Case

Brand New
  • £90.00

Description & Specs

Hand crafted in SSF CA. The #5 will except a wider ranges of insert accessories in the future as well as work spot on for triple flange hoops with the new "extra grip" leather feature that keeps it where you want it.

Similar to the #4, but will accept a wider range of insert accessories. Also, we have added a leather "extra grip" option for triple flange hoops. Just pull it out of the channel and over the magnet to read "EXTRA GRIP" and slide in into place. This will prevent the #5 from moving in tiny amounts over time with hard hitting drummers. The second simple feature is a cutaway to except our mono trigger (sold separately but at a great price). Nothing else has changed or needed to charge from the #4. All prior inserts from other Snareweight models will work exactly the same. As they say in computer land, it's backward compatible. The 3rd difference is the rustic brown leather we chose for the standard insert. It's a bit brighter sounding with a more cutting rim shot. We all agree it sounds a bit tougher when the head is hit hard. Insert choice does make a huge difference and again, all older inserts work with the new #5. If you looking for a #4 it's back in year 2016 and 2017- heh heh... Time ticks rrrrocking good to friends and fam and find those choice beats of the future!!

Snareweight #5 is the fifth generation built for metal triple flange hoops (die cast hoops need a pro lock- see pro lock). It's made to last of a weighted solid 3/4lbs. chunk of CNC'd brass. The weight, friction and magnet, all work together to create what we call "expressive dampening"- giving color options to your playing all the way through the dynamic range.

The neodymium arched magnet secures the Snareweight to the hoop while at the same time securing the leather insert of your choice for your dampening digs. Snareweight #5 is the only body you will ever need. Slide the #5 around the rim with one hand while hitting the drum with the other until you find the sweet spot.
