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.
One of the sweethearts of the Art Deco period, this elegant species nearly pegs the density scale, giving it all the cut, projection, and sensitivity of a metal snare while adding a complexity and musicality they've always lacked... our beauty in black to rival your Black Beauty. She's commanding at volume, articulate at a whisper... an eager workhorse dipped in unparalleled decadence.
