What We Think

Block drums have been a favorite for players that want focus, projection, and tone woods that stand apart from the mass produced drums. This Metro Tasmanian Blackwood with Rose Mahogany Stripes block drum does all of that in one beautiful package.

The slightly thinner 3/8" shell wall on this block delivers a hint of focus but kicks up the projection in a way that ply drums fail. The Tasmanian Blackwood's softer wood brings a buttery smooth mid-range frequency reminiscent of vintage drums while the 45-degree bearings shape and define the modern sounds that we love. Builder Paul Warry added Rose Mahogany accent stripes below each tube lug before topping off the shell with a glass-like gloss finish. We found that the ten tube lugs create the perfect tuning recipe for an unforgettable "crack" in the higher tunings but also keeps the drum taught enough for spongy rebounds in the lowest of tunings with sacrificing definition.

Block drums are not for everyone, but if you find that your ply drum is not giving you the focus and projection that you desire it may be time to give them a listen. Check out the Metro Tasmanian Blackwood block snare drum and see what it can do for your sound today.
