What We Think

For years Noble & Cooley has been creating some of the most sought after snare drums for recording and live players alike. New for 2019, the Copper Classic continues this tradition with a bold tone and a striking appearance.

The Copper Classic starts with a 3mm rolled and welded straight shell without reinforcing rings giving this beauty a wide a diverse tuning flexibility. Both the interior and exterior have a beautiful brushed finish and is sealed with a clear coat to keep this instrument looking sharp and pristine for years to come and is capped off with the laser etched N&C badge logo. 

Through our extensive testing, we loved the wide range of sonic possibilities the Copper Classic provides. It has much more character than most metal snares. By tuning the heads high, you can still get the "crack" or "pop" of a metal drum, but at looser tunings, the sound of the drum can mimic the warmth of a wood shell. Like most of the Noble & Cooley drums, the Alloy Classic uses 45-degree bearing edges giving pristine articulation regardless of where it is tuned and the die-cast hoops accentuate rimshots and the all-important backbeat.

Available in a 6" or 8" shell depth, die-cast hoops or flanged hoops, the Copper Classic gives players options to fine-tune their perfect sound. If you find yourself wanting something outside of the normal metal snare drum offerings, give the Noble & Cooley Copper Classic a listen and see what it can do for your sound.

Manufacturer's Description from Noble & Cooley

CONSISTENCY: The Copper Classic shell is machined after rolling. Lathing and CNC machining produce a drum of incredible consistency. The bearing edge and shell dimensions are kept to a very tight tolerance.

HARDWARE: The Copper Classic uses the famous N&C brass throw-off and patented cam action snares. The lugs are low-mass brass tube-style lugs, and the rims are triple-flanged. The hardware is all black powder coat.

About Manufacturer

As a company, Noble & Cooley has a rich heritage that is as singular and remarkable as the drums themselves. Founded in 1854 by Silas Noble and James Cooley, the company has been producing drums for over 140 years. We were one of the primary manufacturers of marching drums for the Union Army during the Civil War. Still owned and operated by direct descendants of James Cooley, the Noble & Cooley Company of today is run from the same rustic location in Granville, Massachusetts.

For many years, Noble & Cooley served primarily the toy drum market. It was in 1980 that company vice-president Jay Jones (Great-great-great grandson of James Cooley) decided to enter the professional drum arena. Working closely with designer Bob Gatzen and pulling out of retirement a steam bending machine old enough to have survived a company fire in 1889, N&C introduced the Solid Shell Maple Classic snare drum in late 1983. The drum was a huge success and revolutionized the drum industry to a degree no one could have expected.

It is precisely this combination of innovation and tradition that fuels Noble & Cooley to this day. Attention to detail and the relentless pursuit of perfection are the motivating ideals of our company philosophy. Our commitment to excellence is the reason why Noble & Cooley are called by many "The World's Best Drums."
