The snare drums are constructed in the same stave shell construction as the toms are (see About page), but they may vary more in shell thickness. Zebra Drums snare drums are purposely made using the conventional tuning system, because of two reasons:
- The lower resonant head needs to be tuned really tight, while you can vary tuning with the batter head for optimal use;
- The type of snare bed that is being used on all Zebra Drums’ snares needs constant high tensioning for it to work to it’s full potential.
“...it’s not often I find myself struggling to offer a single critism...”
“These drums do exactly what they’re supposed to, with no little flair. For the price they are a steal.”
All snare drums are fitted with tube lugs, a Trick strainer and custom snare wire straps, for added sensitivity and durability. Also, there are a lot more wood types to choose from in comparison to the Zebra Drums toms and bass drums. This depends on which woods I can get a hold of. I do specific preferences on request concerning hardware and wood type. Check the current stock below!
