Solid (one-ply) shell manufacture is a process that has been around for many years and through that span of time has been perfected. Our shell recipe combines select tone-woods, shell thickness and bearing edges to produce the optimal composition for tone, sensitivity, and projection.
Vintage Custom snare drums are handcrafted from a single ply of hardwood. Shells are made by steam bending and reinforcement rings are added for shell integrity and stabiltiy. These are turned to exacting standards (.005") on CNC lathes.
Solid shell snare drums are favorites among many top professionals and are prized for their unique tonal qualities.
