Brady 8x14 Jarrah Block Baritone Snare Drum Satin Finish  From Brady

  BRADY is proud to introduce our new “Baritone” block shell snare drums, created for drummers who love the unique characteristics of BRADY’s famed block shell snare drums, but who prefer deeper snare tones. Many of their remarkable Australian hardwoods provide enormous cut and a brighter, woody tone due to their extreme density. By using this intelligent “Baritone” construction method, the shell behaves as is it’s only as thin as the carved section in the exterior of the shell, which in turn considerably drops the pitch of the shell.

Manufacturer's Description from Brady

Nothing compares to Chris Brady's innovative style of block (stave) construction for a remarkably bright shell with a rich, gratifying low end.

The introduction of our now world-famous block-shell snare drums a quarter of a century ago led to our global reputation for crafting outstanding instruments. Achieved primarily through the use of relatively unknown timbers and our lateral view of drum design, these sounds made the industry sit up and take notice. The best session drummers were soon putting Brady block snares on their snare stands and these drums gave their live and studio performances some serious character.

A sheer joy in the studio, block shells differ sonically from ply shells in that a block shell has a very quick decay and a thicker tone; therefore sound engineers no longer need to use noise gates or heavy reverb plates to enhance natural tones. Renowned for their thick, throaty, woody bark, Brady block shell snare drums thrill, seduce and surprise.

About Manufacturer

In a copycat world where so much is becoming the same, nothing sounds like a Brady because nothing is built like a Brady.

Chris Brady has never felt the need to duplicate traditional manufacturing techniques used by other established drum manufacturers. Instead, his creations are formed purely on the basis of how a drum should sound - all economic considerations aside.

Corporate entities tend to build drums in their own image, or as replications of what others have done. That’s why Brady has remained relatively small and fiercely independent for 30 years. It‘s essential to who we are. As one of the last autonomous well-known drum companies in the world, we can avoid the bureaucracies and red tape that strangle new and innovative ideas. Perhaps that is why - in a world of homogenized instruments - Brady drums are so remarkably, refreshingly different.

From our workshop in rural Western Australia, Chris and his team painstakingly handcraft magnificent native hardwoods into shells of unprecedented sound and quality. Here, craftsmanship is elevated to a fine art form by handcrafting shells into three different styles of construction, each in a class by itself: Ply, Block and Solid.

Chris’ formula for our diverse collection involves a timber’s grain structure, hardness, shell thickness, shell diameter, shell depth and - of course - the unique acoustical characteristics of each of our Australian hardwoods, coupled with the construction method of the shell itself.

Through the use of relatively unknown indigenous Australian timbers and Chris' progressive approach to drum design, we are proud to offer you an exquisite range of drums, created for the discerning musician to enjoy.
