The 7-ply Canadian Maple Shell offers uncompromisingly rich and warm sounds that highlight lower pitches and provide balance in the mid-range and treble. Whether in the woodshed, recording studio, or on stage, SONOR’s Select Force snare drums deliver a powerful performance every time. Fitted with 10 Dixon/Camco Style Lugs, Heavy Duty Dunnett Style Strainer, Extended Mapex Butt Plate, Gibraltar Triple Flanged Hoops, and PureSound Snare Strands. The cross lamination of the individual layers of wood (CLTF Cross Laminated Tension Free Process) finish off this great drum. This is a tough killer of a drum!
