14×6.5 Purpleheart Stave snare with a hand-rubbed high gloss finish. This is the first of our fully-custom Pantheon Elite series drums.
We used the “double-staining” technique to tone the colour of the wood with black and purple to enhance the complexity of the grain. The shell was originally a pink/ brown mix of open-grained staves and it took plenty of back-breaking work to oil, seal, harden, stain, varnish, sand, glaze, polish, and wax. We finished it off with a selection of premium hardware for maximum versatility.
Above all, the SOUND of this snare is simply fantastic: focused, thick tone with plenty of projection and articulation. This snare can play it all.
This drum is part of an exclusive, one-of-a-kind 4-piece SNOM (snare/tom) kit in 12/14/14/20 configuration. Stay tuned for further updates on this SNOM kit.
A few weeks ago I decided to work more from home, so I have spent many hours repurposing the rooms of my house. It’s not complete of course but it’s getting there. This used to be my study, and now it’s where I do my finishes and leave them to dry.
The main reason for this, is of course, quality.
Drum making is an art and the more time you can spend honing a single drum, or finish, the higher quality the final product is likely to be. I can spend time developing and perfecting, reworking and revisiting, producing drums of the most exacting standards and beauty.
These are not drums that you churn out. These are drums that you make regardless of cost and time spent. You make them because your soul demands it.
Introducing the Pantheon Elite series. May they rock your world.
We’ve had concert toms for years now but we haven’t really marketed them for some reason. Maybe I was too busy with the drum kits. We set these up at Gryd Studio a while back to record some samples.
Available in different woods, sizes, plies, depths, shell types, finishes, single or double sided, and price points, I think there is something for every orchestra and band. Talk to us and we can make some magic happen.
