What We Think

Master builder Paul Warry and founder of Metro Drum Company has been creating some of Australia's finest handcrafted drums for twenty years. This Metro 6.5x14 Spotted Gum ply snare drum features a Marmalade veneer. with a silky smooth gloss finish.

Spotted Gum is an incredible tonewood for players that prefer mid to mid-high frequency drums. The 14" shell diameter works extremely well with this in delivering a crisp and articulate drum throughout the multiple tuning ranges that we tested. Complemented with 8 tube lugs, tuning is easy and flexible without overloading the shell with the unnecessary weight that can potentially rob you of sustain. Press rolls are sensitive and wide open from the center to the edges making this diverse drum really fun to play. No detail was spared as you will find premium gaskets underneath the lugs to protect the shell, ABS washers on the tension rods to protect your hoops, and a silky smooth satin finish to complete the package. We loved this drum in the medium and high tunings but we wouldn't discount the drum's lower tuning. If the Marmalade veneer doesn't get your attention, then the Spotted Gum will.


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.
