Our VIRTUE: Humility™ 14" x 5" Mahogany-Poplar Snare Drum features a Vintage 3-ply shell with an asymmetrical round-over top edge for our twist on old school warmth and character. Custom, hand-shaped snare beds are designed to yield a versatile instrument and deliver articulate snare response. A hand-rubbed satin finish enhances the naturally beautiful ribboning of the African Mahogany.
The vintage look is reinforced with classic hardware, including ten chrome-over-brass tube lugs, Trick 3-position throw-off, Fat Cat high performance snare wires, 4mm straight hoops with claw hooks, and top-quality stainless steel internal mounting screws. Nylon washers facilitate smooth, accurate tuning while high-quality drumheads by Evans deliver professional results straight away.
