6.5x14 Maple Matte Black


Dialtune uses 8-ply maple snare shells that express warm tones, a very wide tuning range, and a sound that works very well for all styles of music. The tonal quality is produced by multi-ply shells of hand-selected maple, and they offer excellent resonance throughout the tuning range. Tuned tight, these shells deliver plenty of snap and crack, middle range is bright and robust, while tuned looser, the sound is punchy with good reverberation.

    Life Changing Snare….

    Bought this thinking it would take awhile to come, a week and change later…it arrived. Just in time for a studio session and an upcoming show with my band Wild Planes. I tracked this with the demo head right out of the box and it sounded absolutely killer! Got the best sound out of this with just one moon gel. I’m legit blown away with what can be done with this snare. The Matte black looks great, the rim is big enough to get a crack and changing the head is easy peasy. Great concept! 💪
