Black Swamp SoundArt Maple Concert Snare Drum - 14x6.5 - Product Information

The Black Swamp Percussion 14″×6.5″ SoundArt Concert Snare Drum features a 10-ply, 100% Maple shell which produces a rich, warm sound with the presence and sensitivity needed for a full variety of musical situations. The precisely machined bearing edge, consisting of an inside 45 degree and outside round-over design results in a full balanced tone with more body and projection than the typical 45 degree double edge. The snare bed is cut shallow and wide for maximum cable contact spanning the entire head, thus increasing the snare response throughout the entire dynamic range of the drum. This series also features 10 exclusive arch base tube lugs that are a modern twist on a classic design. These lugs are die-cast and manufactured with the precision that only Black Swamp can do. Finish this drum off with the Black Swamp Die-Cast hoops, which stay in tune longer and focus the drum’s sound for projection and added tonality, and you have a professional series concert snare drum that is unmatched in today’s market.

The SoundArt strainer features three contrasting snare units, each individually adjustable but engaged simultaneously to produce a wider dynamic range with exceptional sensitivity. This no-muss, no-fuss approach of the SoundArt Series strainer allows players to quickly establish a distinct orchestral sound that will easily be maintained for the life of the drum. The three snares include the 4 strand gold cable and 4 strand blue cable fused into one unit, 6 strand stainless steel cable unit and the 5 strand wire wound unit.

SoundArt Cables:

Gold Coated Cable
The thickest cable type, responding best at loud dynamic levels. The dry, throaty character of this material type is similar to the traditional gut snares.
Blue Coated Cable
Not as thick as the Gold version and responds best at medium to loud dynamic ranges. The dry character provides both articulation and volume.
Stainless Steel Cable
Responds best at soft to medium dynamic ranges. The bright, wet character balances the drum’s overall volume.
Wire Wound
Responds best in the softer dynamic ranges. The crisp, bright character provides the greatest sensitivity and response.

The SoundArt Series Concert Snare Drums are available in three beautiful, high gloss lacquered finishes: Concert Black, Cherry Rosewood and Walnut. Each of the three finishes is applied in a special process that is designed to not only look beautiful but also to last over the lifetime of the drum.

Includes free padded snare drum bag and chrome drum key.

A Great Success

Comments:

Went to the actual Steve Weiss store to test out some snare drums, and let me tell you this, Black Swamp has done it again. This is a fantastic drum that is reasonably priced, that sounds identical (or better) than drums twice its value. The blue and gold cable snares provide very good snare response at the edge of the drum, and react well to changes in environment, tambour, and dynamic level. I chose this drum over all the other options that I tried, which includes pretty much the entire Pearl Philharmonic series. All in all, amazing drum. Looks great, sounds great, and is sure to last me for a long time. Throw a Remo Diplomat M5 head on and this is a drum to challenge all the rest. Good work, Black Swamp (++It's made in the USA!).

Comments:

Bought this drum as my first concert snare and absolutely love it! Great sound in all dynamics and a gorgeous drum as well. Apart from the sound and the looks this drum equipped with a renaissance head has done wonders for my rolls both open and closed. Highly HIGHLY Recommended.
