From Joyful Noise:
The JNDC Soared copper shells are hand-selected for their superior vibrance and incredible warmth. Similar to the Anchored copper, the Soared is a slightly thicker version of the thinner JNDC copper 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 Soared copper is articulate and powerful, but possesses the warmth and vibrance consistent with the JNDC Modern Classic shell design. The Soared is slightly thicker than the Anchored copper, which results in greater presence and musicality that complement the instrument voice.
Once the Soared copper 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 copper acid patina and heat-sealed in 100% Carnauba wax, the Soared copper finish displays the characteristics of the ancient copper roofs of the old world.
The Soared copper 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 "One Touch Classic" snare drum
strainer (throw-off) system.
A certificate of authenticity, serialized lapel badge, JNDC Strainer Tutorial DVD, and a complimentary embroidered soft shell case accompany each instrument. The Soared copper is only available in a 6.5x14 size. 5x14 and 4x14 shells are currently thicker configurations, similar to the Conquered copper series.
