Our VIRTUE: Honesty™ Ash 14" x 5" Snare Drum features a Purely-Resonant™ solid stave shell that is 1/2" thick, offering excellent sensitivity and tone that accurately reflects the crisp timbre of this American tonewood. The round-over top edge and diecast rims help control overtones and deliver a solid backbeat. Custom, hand-shaped snare beds are designed to yield a versatile instrument and deliver articulate snare response.
A hand-rubbed satin finish reveals beautiful grain patterns combined with classic chrome hardware, including ten single point lugs, diecast rims, George Way throw-off, adjustable butt plate, Fat Cat Snare Wires, and top-quality stainless steel internal mounting screws. Nylon shoulder washers facilitate smooth, accurate tuning and prevent tension rod rattle at lower tensions, while high-quality drumheads by Evans deliver professional results straight away.
