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.
Another common tonewood in guitar making, this beauty sits on the soft side of middle on the density scale, providing the warm side of versatility... a dose of hug to go with your growl. She's humble and well-spoken without being bossy... all class every night. Content in both high and low tunings, she's a loyal and capable performer... a well-dressed worker.
