The Reggae / Ska Snare Drum

The Reggae / Ska Snare drum is built using the same 'suspended shell' system as with all other Flint drums.

The effect of this suspended shell system is to enhance resonance and create a pure singular tone, meaning that the drum can be tuned to an exact note.

As standard, this drum is supplied with Puresound snare wire.

The hoops are fully die cast aluminium and the 12 lugs are solid steel.

Because of this increased resonance, this drum is particularly suited to music genres of Reggae and Ska.

As well as an aluminium shell, this snare drum can be supplied in copper, brass and steel and is available in shell depths of 3.5", 5.5" and 7".
