From Joyful Noise:
The JNDC Beacon bronze shells are hand-selected for their superior vibrance and incredible warmth. The Beacon bronze is a thinner shell in comparison to the Studio Line bronze shells. These drums are very similar in timbre to the vintage snares from the late 1920s and early 1960s instruments, as a result of the thinner shell construction. The slight variations in shell thickness result in more mid-range and low-range frequencies with added warmth. The Beacon bronze is articulate and powerful, but possesses the appropriate set of high end frequencies that empower this drum to shimmer like a beacon.
Once the Beacon bronze is hand-selected, the bearing edges and snare beds are finished by hand in order to refine and optimize the sonic performance. Finished with a ferric patina and heat- sealed in 100% Carnauba wax, the Beacon bronze radiates an organic golden prismatic finish that is truly unique
The Beacon bronze shell model design and hardware consist of 2.5mm solid brass bright nickel-plated triple flanged hoops, ten solid brass bright nickel-plated Corder tube lugs, bell- flanged bearing edges, vintage-inspired crimped snare beds, 24k gold-plated brass JNDC feather motif drum badge, and the bright nickel-plated proprietary cast bronze JNDC
