10-ply 14 x 6.5 Satin Black Birch snare with Black Nickel hoops and Gold/Brass hardware. Rich powerful and meaty tones come from this snare because of its shell, and dimensions. The 2.3mm black nickel hoops give it that little extra crack, complimenting the dryness of the birch shell. Of course nobody can resist gold and brass hardware either. This snare is a very exclusive creation, destined for greatness.
