Pacific Drums and Percussion (PDP) have announced the addition of five new metal snare drums extending its PDP Concept™ Select and Concept™ Series Snares in a range of sizes and metals.
New to the range of its flagship Concept™ Select instruments are the 14” x 8″ Aluminum and 14” x 8″ Bell Bronze snare drums featuring seamless 3mm shells with a unique laser-engraved Art Deco insignia emblazoned on each drum. These curated heavy metal shells are finished with chrome dual-turret lugs, 20-strand snare wire, True-Pitch® tension rods, DW MAG™ throw-offs, and DW Heads™ by Remo®. The Aluminum snare is fitted with natural walnut wood hoops secured with vintage low-profile claw hooks, while the Bronze version comes with triple-flange hoops.
Extending the range of Concept™ Series metal snares are the new 14” x 5″ Aluminum, Brass, and Copper snare drums. They are all fitted with double-beaded rolled 1mm shells and finished with a brushed exterior. The hardware offers stylish dual-turret lugs and high-end DW appointments like a DW MAG™ throw-off, True-Pitch® tuning rods, 20-strand snare wire and DW Heads™ by Remo®.
“The launch of these new PDP snare drums offers an even wider choice of sounds to drummers around the world. These boutique style snares sound amazing and look great. The 8 x 14” Bell Bronze snare is a monster with a thick, dense sound, and massive punchy attack, while the 5 x 14” copper snare delivers a warmer and darker tonality” – comments PDP Brand Manager, Rob Dean.
