Ahead 14" x 6" SIngle Ply African Wenge Stave Snare Drum is crafted using single ply African Exotic Wenge, the African Wenge is a durable hardwood that is known for it's high density and toughness. A stave shell is used for this particular Ahead snare drum and this means the wood runs the entire length of the drum depth, allowing for excellent energy from the drum when in use. This creates a vertical grain across the drum which provides enhanced strength and allows the bearing edge to be a harder, more durable grain. Not only that, the vertical grain means that 90% less glue is used in comparison to a traditional ply shell. The sounds that this type of shell produces are sharp and definitive with rich yet deep overtones.
Many say the 14" x 6" size is an ideal size for various musical applications, with some believing the 6" depth is the perfect depth for a snare drum. The hardness of the exotic african wenge bridges the gap between a wood and metal shell, with distinct personality traits of hardwood, the hardness of the wood does resemble a metal shell at times. Superior sensitivity as well clarity and projection when you go all out is what you can expect from this snare drum. Other features include Fat Cat Dual Adjustable Snappy Snare Wires, Remo USA Heads, TightScrew Tension Rods for perfect tuning and an 10 lug S-Hoop counter hoop which has the power to deliver substantial, meaty rim shots. Not only do you get all of that when you buy this Ahead Snare Drum, also included is a Dunnett R4 Throw-off features an adjustable lever that has a quick release mechanism and is small and lightweight, allowing for great back off prevention.
