The George Way Studio snare drum is something that both vintage aficionados and music historians alike can appreciate. These beautiful drums are made by legendary craftsman Ronn Dunnett and incorporate many of the same design elements as George Way's original drums. The 6.5' x 14' Studio Snare Drum in Silver Sparkle finish features a 4-ply maple shell with reinforcement hoops. This makes this drum extremely warm, fat, and breathy with many beautiful nuances and subtleties that really make it something special.
This drum also features some gorgeous hardware that is extremely functional as well as pleasing to the eye. It has streamline style lug casings which provide stable and reliable tuning, triple-flange hoops which really help open up the sound of the drum, and an 845 style snare throw-off. The 845 throw-off is a recreation of Way's original design. However, this new breed of throw-off features die-cast parts, and an improved mechanism to create seamless transitions in snare positioning. It is also incredibly stable and precise. This snare also features AAA chrome plating on all metal parts.
