What We Think

The Concept Metal series represents years of refined craftsmanship from the PDP team. This snare is designed to be a “workhorse,” making it useful for live or recording playing situations. The aluminum lends itself to a crisp and sensitive articulation in the medium and high tensions while retaining definition in the lower ranges. PDP's True Pitch tension rods combined with the 10 lug configuration affords the player greater control over the tuning to a very granular level.

Manufacturer's Description from PDP

The Concept Series Aluminum snare drum features a rolled and doubled-beaded 1mm aluminum shell that is brushed for a classy satin finish. Aluminum shells are a unique sonic alternative to stainless steel and offer a similar round attack and musical overtones, but with a much drier resonance. Premium appointments, including True-Pitch tension rods, a sturdy DW MAG throw-off, and Remo Heads, contribute to the sophistication and quality of the snare. Drummers have enjoyed the PDP Concept Select Series Aluminum snare's resplendent sound. It's a multi-faceted snare you'll never want to stop playing!
