What We Think

This incredible drum is a very rare offering. Dunnett's Magnesium shell projects ample high and mid frequencies, but without any harshness, you would expect from metal shell drums. In low volumes, the thinner magnesium shell excels with sensitivity and expressive warmth. In high volume settings, this drum projects rimshots and sings ghost notes. Incredibly lightweight, visually stunning, and offering superior range, the Dunnett Magnesium snare earns its place in any players collection.

Manufacturer's Description from Dunnett
