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.
Eastern Black Cherry
Sweet Black Cherry... how the company adores thee. Used for anything and everything good, Cherry is the company ambassador. Sitting right up the middle on the density scale, she's one of the most versatile. She'll whisper, scream, sing and growl... all with a smile that gets prettier with age. But don't let the exquisite exterior fool you... she's one of the hardest workers in the lot.
