Steve Smith is nothing short of iconic in the drumming world and is well recognised for playing with the likes of Jean-Luc Ponty, as a session musician for Bryan Adams and Andrea Bocelli and is probably most recognised for his time with the rock band, Journey. Now we know that in spite of everything we tell you about this special snare drum, you've now started to hum "Don't Stop Believing" but if we could recapture your attention for just a short while you really will thank us!
Steve has loved Sonor since early on in his professional career, so much so his first and only choice for professional choice has always been Sonor and now as he's reached a milestone 40 years in the drumming industry what better way to celebrate his impressive career than with a snare that encompasses everything Steve is, stands for and aspires to be. Crafted using a 9-ply beech shell base, this hardwood is focussed and dedicated with a punchy low end and with articulate mids/highs. Key features include the Dual Glide Snare Strainer and 24 Steel Strand Wires, the snare strainer makes for a precise action which eliminate any un-wanted sounds and tones when the snare wires are both in and out of use. Vintage style round bearing edges are rounded to generate more head to shell contact, overall creating a warmer, fuller sound. A high quality mountain burl veneer finish encompasses both the inside and outside of this snare drum, with beautiful 'bowtie' lugs it really adds that extra bit of class onto this anniversary snare drum. A special snare drum for an industry recognised professional, if that doesn't inspire you to play like one of the pros we don't know what will!
