PIPE BAND DRUM TECHNOLOGY
REINVENTED FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
DIRECT DRIVE UPPER SNARE
Our Patent Pending snare mechanism is precision engineered from super-light aircraft grade aluminium. This innovative upper snare mechanism guarantees optimum parallel snare wire positioning with a single, uncomplicated adjustment.
Snare height is operated by thumbscrews meaning 100% tool-less adjustment for extremely effective snare response. The elegant design offers fast snare wire changes and ensures snare wires will not move during normal playing.
DIRECT DRIVE LOWER SNARE
N-Circle™ is a revolution in snare drum bearing-edge technology.
Designed to equalise the distribution of tension across the bottom head, N-Circle™ is a finely tuned piece of engineering which acts as a vital component in the Axial snare drum.
Precision crafted from high-density composite materials, N-Circle™ utilises a 45º round over bearing-edge providing the optimum balance between head contact and tension for controlled tuning and excellent playability.
The resulting increase in structural strength creates a more resilient shell and allows for higher tension throughout the drum.
