What We Think

A perfect intersection of artwork and high performance. This snare produces a thunderous sound equal only to Zeus humself. The maple and walnut construction offer up a transparent, no nonsense sound, accentuated by the innovative hollow construction of the shell that adds bassy tones yet also makes for a more lively, "breathy" sound - I would characterize the this drum as full-spectrum and loud. In other words, it sounds damn good. Easily one of my favorite snares that we've evr had in the shop. Don't miss it!

Manufacturer's Description from Other

We’re continuously searching for ways to improve sound performance. Our latest endeavor is focused on creating enhanced sound with a radical change in shell structure.

Hypothesis: A hollow core shell will produce a more resonant and fat sounding snare drum

The design consists of solid batter and resonant bearing edge sections, with a hollow core made of thin internal and external walls that slip into joints on the bearing edge sections. We audio tested several variants of the design, including different bearing edges, shell thicknesses, lug layouts, and species. The outcome of those design and testing efforts is our new HOLLOCORE snare.
