As the voice of the kit, Sugar Percussion Snares are raised like well-loved pups… bred and nursed with a surplus of attention. Like their kits, every snare is built from a single tree, insuring congruency of color and tone. Staves are orchestrated to visually flow from one to the next, aesthetics equaling performance in priority. Shells are built slightly undersized to avoid contact with the drumhead ring, allowing for solid wood expansion/contraction and maximizing resonance. Bearing edges are shaped by hand creating fluidity from shell to head, snare beds gently dipping to facilitate acute and sensitive responsiveness. Trick throw-offs, Puresound wires and our own Sugar Percussion lugs finish the outfitting.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar
A common tonewood used as soundboards for guitars, Alaskan Yellow Cedar resides far to the soft side on the density scale, thereby providing a swampy warmth only found in the doughiest of woods. Like a just-baked donut, no matter how hard you hit it, she'll never be harsh to the ear. This buttery angel is, and always will be, a company darling.
