Snare of the day

Noble & Cooley solid shell

Our featured snare drum to kick off the week is this stunning Noble & Cooley solid maple shell….


One of the last drum manufacturers in the USA making solid shell drums, this 14×4″ snare drum is a real classic. Favoured by many players in the studio, this drum has a great crack to it, yet has the body and depth you’d expect from a solid maple shell. Sensitivity right across the head at all tuning, and a focused sound due to the die cast hoops.

Several name players, producers and studio owners rate these drums in their top 5 for studio use. I believe Phil Collins used a 4″ Noble & Cooley snare drum on most of his classic tracks. More info on this drum on our website.
