MERLIN SNARE DRUM

Critically acclaimed by players and pundits alike, the Merlin’s reputation is  assured, with commendations from The Music Industry Association and an impressive 5-star review in Rhythm Magazine.

 

If you are looking for a snare drum that you can be certain will deliver the goods in all musical situations, then the Merlin is the snare drum for you.

 

Like the world-class Rolls Royce aviation engine which inspired it, the Merlin excels in delivering outstanding performance precisely when it matters. When the occasion demands, Merlin will not let you down.

 

This beautiful instrument is handcrafted utilising a 20ply shell of alternating vertical and horizontal veneers - maple for focus and warmth, and birch for brightness and projection. The shell is then precision finished using a black tulip veneer and detailed with a stylish inlaid double pinstripe of maple. The Merlin is available in two options - 14” x 5.5” and 14” x 6.5” - each with its own characteristic voice offering a wide variety of sonic possibilities.

The Merlin willingly reveals its musical versatility when you start to play. The responsiveness is uncompromising however you tension the heads. Tune down for rich, warm resonance to create that classic dry, funkier sound, or tighten up the tension for a bright, clear attack. From both extremes, and with everything in between, Merlin allows you to hear and feel every subtlety of your playing.
