  • Features the patented “Temple Mount” stainless steel strainer brackets, hand-polished to a mirror chrome finishenabling the installation of the strainer without the need to drill.
    **This snare is 1 of only 2 available snares that feature the seamless copper interior, which is a patented process whereby 2mm of pure copper material is chemically adhered to the wood itself, without the use of fillers or bonding agents, allowing the copper to retain its inherent acoustic properties, without interfering with its solid, single plywood shell counterpart. This is not a faux finish; it is solid copper. These shells take months to develop, Achieving harmony between seamless metal alloy and single-ply exotic wood is no easy task. This snare is in a class of its own. The sound produced is ear-piercingly loud, exotic, and truly one-of-a-kind.**
