Ronn Dunnett NAMM 2013

Posted by Mick Common on 30th January 2013

What’s New Ronn?

Ronn Dunnett Concept kit, snare drums and accessories!

Again we thank Mike Dolbear for the use of his video (see below).

Drum Kit

We kick off the tour with meeting the main man himself, Mr Ronn Dunnett who then shows us a stainless documentary drum kit built as an experiment to see if he can produce a huge tonal spread on a small drum kit. He tells how it was achieved by using traditional 6”, 8”, 10”, 12” concert toms which are mounted above the 14” x 8” rack tom which is mounted above the 22” x 14” bass drum alongside 16” x 18” Floor Tom and a 18” x 18” Floor Tom.

Ronn Dunnett Snare Drums

Ronn started to tell us that he only brought a couple of top shelf snare drums and rare project snare drums, his vanity effort as he called them and no so much of production snare drums. We saw the Core Snare Drum which is a lightweight snare drum made from three different woods between stainless steel and magnesium which is sandwiched between two titanium hoops. He showed us a Trussart Snare Drum. James Trussart is more well known for guitars than drums but his art work looks amazing. Drum Shop UK have a few in our Dunnett Snare Drum Section within our site.

Ronn breifly showed us his Stanton Moore titanium snare drum which he told us that he can’t make enough to keep up with demands, proving to be a very popular snare drum indeed.

There was a very nice Milkwood snare drum that was hand carved by an aboriginal artist in Vancouver called James Michels which was a pretty cool looking snare drum.

We then see an amazing titanium snare drum with ti hoops that was engraved by the legendary John Aldridge and very nice it is! He briefly shows us a snare drum that has been wrapped in banana leaf.. Yes, banana leaf. Finally, Ronn give us a sneak peak to a snare drum he calls a Dunnett Supra with a die cast top hoop and a triple flange bottom hoop that is fitted with a R4L throw off. This snare drum is possibly going to be a very famous drummer but Ronn being the true professional would not mention the name “Lose Lips, Sink Ships”. Fingers crossed Ronn pulls off the deal!

Ronn Dunnett Accessories

We get to see the R-class Utility Clamp, this attaches to the hoops of your toms or snare drum. It works on either triple flange hoops or die cast hoops. Good for mounting cymbals or whatever you would like to mount to your drum, the list is endless.

R7 Throw Off aka Reach-Around which flicks a 3 stage mechanism to either tighten or slacken off your snare.

Finally Ronn showed us the E-Key which is a drum key that works fast in your fingers. This key is not a ratchet, it can work left or right handed and is available in either polymer or die cast – Awesome

Thank You Mike Dolbear!
