Very rich with mellow overtones

Responsive, with rich and full-sounding qualities.

Everything about it is beautiful. Being only 2.7mm thickness it is very responsive. Cranked and it just goes to another level like the reason you drive a Ferrari. Sonically it is amazing. It has such amazing richness of tone + rim shots like no other. It has that typical bell brass ring to it but it is just so musically full and warm.

al percival

I just love the tone of this drum, it has got all!
It's sensitive, powerful and even versatile. This snare drum also has a very classic look which is suitable for every situation.
