From Doc Sweeney:
This single ply snare drum features a steam bent shell and is outfitted with chrome-plated solid brass tube lugs, vintage style strainer, and double flange hoops.
The bearing edge has particular similarities to the single ply shells of the golden era of snare drum production in the USA during the 1920's by the "Big 3" American drum builders; thus maximizing the great sound coveted by so many collectors, players and recording sound engineers.
Our Classic snares also feature maple re-rings and are Made in the U.S.A.
It's all about the sound!
