DS Drum Launch New Seamless Metal Snare Series

today18 August, 2023

Background

DS Drum are delighted to announce the highly anticipated launch of their Seamless Metal Snare Drums Series.

They are now in stock and available to ship with shell options of Aluminium, Brass and Copper.

Seamless shelled snare drums have been the most recorded snare drums for many decades, and these new DS snares will be joining that exclusive club with their amazing tonality and top build quality at surprisingly affordable prices.

Their unique manufacturing process improves the raw material metallurgy by realigning thegrain structure and work-hardening the metal. This results in a shell with structural integrity and strength that is superior to any welded shell: full of tone, projection and resonance!

After years of research, a C-Shape™ cross section was finalised to give these drums a unique sound. The slightly conical shell has different bearing edges top and bottom as part of the advanced design.

The drums are satin finished inside and out and are not plated, but finished with a light coat of lacquer to keep their good looks for many years. They are fitted with the DS Drum 2.3mm inward hoops, Italian lugs and strainers and custom high carbon steel snares.
