Stewart Copeland’s signature model is a faithful reproduction of the snare drum of “mysterious provenance” that he used with the Police and everything else from that time period. A brass shell that’s 0.5mm thicker than the standard 1mm shell and the combination of a die-cast batter hoop with a triple flanged bottom hoop provides sounds that easily penetrate what Copeland describes as the “dirge from the bass and the ear-piecing sounds of a guitar.”
The snare drum is the keystone of any drummer’s sound. At some point in the musical journey, the player will embark on a search for the perfect drum to enhance their sound. With that player in mind, we created the S.L.P. series.
With its Maple shell, this snare drum is a great example of what the S.L.P. series snare drum concept is all about. The combination of this choice of a hardwood shell, Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snares and Sound Arc Hoop results in a fully open and resonant sounding drum.
Slightly thicker, 1.2mm shells combined with triple flanged hoops, allow the Metalworks steel shell snare drums to perform at their maximum potential. Five different sizes provide choices for a wide range of applications.
