What We Think

The Carbon Classic snare drum is one of the most versatile drums on the market. The best description of the sound is a cross between metal and wood- that is, the drum produces a powerful and sharp attack similar to metal, but with the depth and warmth of a wood shell drum. The true benefit of the drum comes from the stability of the material which means that the drum stays in tune over a wide variety of conditions- wet or dry, hot or cold etc… The other benefit of carbon fiber is its extremely low weight. This drum comes in at a solid and stable 7.5lbs.

Manufacturer's Description from Other

Carbon fiber is a composite material formed by weaving raw carbon fibers into a textile, which is then combined with epoxy resin to form a plastic-like material that is extremely durable, yet lightweight. Drum shells made from this material are lighter than wood, but much stronger; Rocket Shells are guaranteed not to warp, crack, or delaminate for life. At the core of the drum is the patented C-1200 shell (14” only- all other sizes utilize C-900 shell). The bearing edges are carbon fiber, and machine cut to a relatively sharp 45 degrees, then slightly rounded over for optimum head seating. The edges are then wet sanded producing a perfectly smooth edge which will last a lifetime. The snare bed is faired from edge to the center gradually, which minimizes stress on the bottom head. The cast carbon fiber lugs are coated with a crystal clear finish, and outfitted with a polished brass barrel nut, which offers smooth as butter tensioning. The Nickelworks strainer and low mass butt plate are strong and smooth and light
