When designing the Vintage Series snare drum, our goal was to create the classic sought after sound from years gone by, but using solid up-to-date hardware and Premier’s new technology to create the ultimate mixed wood thin shell.

Unlike other thin shells and vintage style snare drums, that feature reinforcement rings at the top and bottom of the shell, we wanted to capture the characteristic warmth and depth of a thin shell but without the unwanted overtones that reinforcement rings add. The end result is a shell that features a birch core with a mahogany inner ply and either an African mahogany orsapele pommele outer ply. 

To ensure a consistant tonal response, all toms are 6mmthick and the inherent sound characteristic is a warm, more traditional sounding deep tone that sits perfectly with swing or jazz drumming, or for those who like the more open, warm traditional sounding deep tones.

The thinner shell’s wall permits the air inside to resonate longer with its perfect mix of woods and our secret blend of two glues. This delivers a fat, warm open tone with just the right balance of attack from the birch core.

After researching and paying extra detail to the bearing edges, we finally settled for a 45 degree round-over for the top batter edge which gives more shell to skin contact, enhancing the shell to sing pleasant woody deep notes with extra resonance. The bottom bearing edge is a sharp 45 degree angle for extra sensitivity.

The shell’s outer finish is an elegant hand rubbed satin oil which adds to the perfect setting for the natural beauty of the mahogany’s rich colour and grain. The inside shell and edges are coated with satin oil to protect and seal the wood’s fibres but also allowing the shell to breathe.
