Today’s snare drum of the day is an unique VK Custom Carbon fibre.
This 13 x 6.5″ snare drum was hand built in the UK in 2013 by Alan at VK Drums, a prototype if you like to the drums he is now producing.
The shell is 4 ply carbon fibre, the interior badge indicating that the shell is F#. The lugs and hoops are UK built from Sheffield steel, the drum also features the VK strainer.
This drum offers bright attack and low timbre, allowing the payer to tune the drum quite high but still get a full sound with plenty of mid and bottom frequencies.
Fitted with Evans heads and Puresound snare wires, a really great sounding, unique addition to anyone’s snare collection.
