What We Think

For decades now, Metro Drum Company has been creating some of the finest handcrafted drums from Australia and we are super excited to have these drums.

This Tasmanian Blackwood snare drum with Torrangora wood hoops brings a throwback flair with modern build tolerances. Finished in a natural satin, the mineral streaks of this gorgeous timber really stand out and provide a beautiful complement to the darker wood hoops. The Tasmanian Blackwood coupled with the 8 lug configuration bring a soothing warmth that we fell in love with. The Torrangora wood hoops bring a nice full-bodied rimshot you've come to expect from modern drums while tipping the cap towards a retro look.

The Dunnett throw-off is multi-stepped and allows players who prefer multiple snare sensitivities an option to take advantage of this with a turn of the strainer. A total of three snare positions and one off position. The Regal lugs tune with ease and the drum is finished with a 42 strand snare wire.

This is just one of the many options that Metro Drum Company has available. Whether you prefer modern builds or vintage sounds, give us a call and get on the road to sonic and visual bliss.

Manufacturer's Description from Metro

The Metro ply shell snare is both dynamic and articulate. These drums have the characteristic volume and projection of the best steel shells, but with a warmth and depth that no metal shell can capture. An expressive instrument with an open, lively sound, these ply shell snare drums respond instantly to even the most subtle stickings.

Tasmanian Blackwood’s tone profile resembles that of koa or mahogany in its midrange focus — a little dry and clear yet also warm — with an added splash of top-end shimmer and richness found in rosewood.
