All Nickel Over Brass Snares are made from our patented raw brass shells, lugs, hoops, and hardware, with hand-cut straight 45 degree edges and Hand Filed Snare beds.
We cut, roll, weld and sand each drum. We found a nickel plater in Texas who’s family has been plating nickel since 1930s. The grandson (46) now runs it, and worked with us to nickel plate our brass the way it was done on those old beautiful 1920s-1930s of old!
The Nickel Over Brass Snares have a deep focused and crisp tone with tons of great snare sensitivity to boot.
We only have one of this drum in stock, get it before it's gone!
