Grover Limited Edition Nightfall G2 KeeGee Concert Snare Drum - 14x3 - Product Information
The Grover Pro KeeGee Piccolo Snare Drum was originally designed at the request of St. Louis Principal Percussionist Will James. Offering a standard 14″ diameter playing surface, its slim 3″ depth provides the ultimate snare sensitivity and clarity. The KeeGee moniker is taken from the orchestral percussion excerpt from "Lt. Kijé Suite" by Prokofiev. As top percussionists know, this difficult passage must be played softly and with clarity. While conceived with soft playing in mind, our KeeGee drum has a cutting bite that surprisingly defies its slim size.
The drum has since been updated with our new G2 Snare Technology. In addition to an array of coated/uncoated cables that run the full length of the diameter, all G2 Series drums feature a second shorter set of the Grover Pro hand-made Performance Silver wires. It is these shorter wires that provide the superior snare response at the softest dynamics, (even when you play at the extreme edge of the top head). The longer cable array gives G2 Series drums crystal clear clarity from mf all the way to ffff. By working together this combination provides terrific projection and focus throughout a broad dynamic spectrum. This piccolo drum serves as a valued addition to any snare drum collection and is a MUST for those taking orchestral auditions.
