6.5x14 Black Nickel Brass


Brass snare shells bridge the gap between wood and metal nicely thanks to the bright, full and open sound. Our brass Dialtune snares have a distinct smack that can cut through dense musical performances, and typically carry a vibrant high-, mid-, and low-end; with a well-rounded overall musical sound.

      Loving It!!

      I'm guessing I was like a lot of other people... Skeptical! Nervous! Worried! ...and several other emotions. Did as much research as I could, watching a lot of videos. For my review, I'm going to borrow from one of those videos. All of the tech stuff on this drum is really cool. After all, changing heads and tuning within minutes is wonderful. And I do mean WONDERFUL! The quality of the drum is phenomenal. It looks really good! Customer service is great! Response time has been very fast. The drum shipped quickly and arrived in excellent condition. All of this, however, means nothing at all if the drum doesn't sound good. And for that, I can answer without hesitation... IT DOES!!!!!!

      Holy eff this is sweet

      Updating my previous review, now that I've had time with it. Best snare I've ever owned. Period. I slap one moongel or a snareweight on it and it can tame some of the resonation that my alt-metal band's sound requires.

      I am truly awful at tuning traditional drums, and this thing gives me the peace of mind that all of my tension points are exactly equal. The quick release head makes changing heads so quick. And it's heavy. Heavy as balls. Which gets me excited in ways I wish it wouldn't...

      All in all, incredible innovation.
