This VIRTUE: Humility™ 14" x 6.5" snare drum delivers vintage vibes and warm, fat tone courtesy of an 8-ply shell with an Okoume core and Black Cherry outer plies. The top edge has an inverted roundover profile while the bottom edge has a 45-degree inner cut and rounded outer cut. Deep, wide snare beds deliver a thick, consistent backbeat.
The classic look is complemented by a hand-rubbed satin finish and chrome hardware. Hardware include eight traditional beavertail-style lugs per side, 2.5mm chrome-over-brass (COB) rims for added resonance and projection, Fat Cat High Performance 20-strand 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 yield professional results straight away.
