Mt.Juliet, TN - January, 2017 | | Concert Snares

Brass, with its brilliant tone and sensitive warmth, is the new highlight of the Majestic Prophonic Series family of orchestral snare drums. Crafted entirely from 1mm brass, this incredibly responsive drum features the thinnest shell of its kind on the market today with a double beaded design for strength and a traditional orchestral metal drum look. The special fold-back of the formed bearing edge ensures shell integrity and the glancing snare bed is slightly deeper than most for optimum cable response.
