Drum Art Technology
Drum Art handcrafted snare drums are professional instruments strictly handmade in Italy. We process selected lumber already seasoned from 4 to 10 years on the farm, create and assemble staves with utmost care, pairing the most compatible ones to make stems balanced in sound and aesthetics.
The staves are joined by a dowel of the same wood for maximum strength and perfectly welded by special glues for high violin making made specifically for each wood species.
The resulting 20-slat shaft is then meticulously turned on the outside, while on the inside the slight facets of the slats promote fruitful sound reflections. The bearing edge has specially designed inclinations to go along with the skin pattern as much as possible and avoid any tension. The wood is then polished and waterproofed, and we finally get a solid body with a thickness of as much as 24 mm.
The chrome-plated hardware, fixed with anodized screws, consists of solid anticorodal blocks, stainless steel tie rods with a special pitch optimized for quick and durable tuning, 2.3 mm triple-flange rims, and brass string tensioning machine with microtune technology that make it especially accurate and reliable. To finish, the 20-strand Pearl Puresound tailpiece and Remo Ambassador skins are fitted.
Drum Art handcrafted snare drums are professional instruments strictly handmade in Italy. We process selected lumber on the farm that has already been seasoned under natural conditions from 4 to 10 years, a feature that ensures its stability and maximizes its tonal qualities. We carefully create and assemble staves, pairing the most compatible ones to make drums that are balanced in sound and aesthetics.
For maximum solidity, the staves are joined by a dowel (male) of the same wood and perfectly welded by special glues for high violin making made specifically for each wood species. The resulting 20-slatted stem (16 in the Fat-Boy model) is then meticulously turned (mechanically flaked) on the outside, while on the inside we let the slight facets of the slats promote the proper sound reflections.
The bearing edge has specially designed inclinations to go along with the skin pattern as much as possible, achieving exceptional sensitivity and allowing us, having full control over the harmonics, to sculpt as sound designers the timbre of each model. The wood is then reinforced with an insulating treatment that stabilizes it and makes it inert against weathering. A light sanding precedes the wood-effect clear coat, and we finally get a splendid and solid body with a thickness of no less than 27 mm (24 mm in the Fat-Boy model).
The tailpiece bed is another important aspect of the drum that decisively influences the sound of the snare drum, so we put all our experience and craftsmanship into achieving maximum adherence of the tailpiece to the skin while leaving the skin with excellent resonant ability.
The hardware, fixed with anodized screws, consists of solid and brushed anticorodal blocks, stainless steel tie rods with special optimized pitch for fast and durable tuning, 2.3 mm triple-flange Power Hoop hoops, and brass string tensioning machine with microtune technology that make it especially accurate and reliable. To finish, the 20/42-strand Pearl tailpiece held by two efficient orange braided cotton bands and Remo Ambassador skins are fitted.
All of which are expertly chosen and calibrated to achieve optimal sensitivity, wide dynamic range, volume, powerful attack and harmonic control.
Even the smallest choice is made in synergy with the technology encapsulated in our prodigious and vibrant slatted drum, with the sole aim of building the specific and amazing sound that distinguishes Drum Art products in the world: a richness of timbre capable of thrilling every professional musician.
The snare drum is the central element of the acoustic drum kit, but it is also a musical instrument in orchestral or band settings. The construction quality of the stem, tuning machines and materials used determine the level of professionalism of the instrument, which is seen in sensitivity and consequent dynamic range, tone quality, tuning efficiency, strength and durability. Versatility is an appreciable plus.
The best snare drum is one that allows you to best express, even beyond your expectations, your musical intent and that does not hinder your creative and performance flow.
So the choice is very subjective; it is related to the way of playing and the genres approached. Often one has two or more favorite snare drums, used according to the situation or there are those who prefer to focus on the versatility of the instrument. While this is a subjective choice, there are snare drums that are objectively better than others in terms of dynamic qualities, timbre, and materials.
