“The tulip shell has a unique character that seems to blend old and new together. Often I am asked what drum I would buy for myself from the snare wall; truthfully, it would be one of these!“

Product Description

The Noble & Cooley SS Maple Classic Snare Drum is an industry legend. It is the stage and studio standard, and few professional drummers don't own at least one of these remarkable instruments. The SS Maple Classic was Noble & Cooley's initial offering in the professional drum arena, and served to establish our reputation as a manufacturer of "The World's Best Drums." SOLID SHELL: The heart of this drum is the shell. We take a piece of 1/4" solid rock maple (or other domestic hardwood), hand-picked for grain consistency, and run it through a steam bending process that hasn't changed since the Civil War. A single piece of wood will vibrate far more freely than a piece constructed of multiple plies. Accordingly, a single ply shell will vibrate (resonate) more freely than the multi-ply shells that are most commonly used in drum manufacture. This resonance is what gives the SS Classic its characteristic warmth and legendary bite. These drums are available in Maple, Oak, Cherry, Beech, and Tulip either 3 7/8", 5" or 7" deep for a completely customizable sound. TULIP: Snare strokes on this tulip drum project with a breathy, aged quality that emphasizes mid- and low-range frequencies.еКThe sound actually does hearken back to the personality of those old military style marching snares.еКStick strokes are dry, focused, and fat, but the drum will get plenty loud when you need it to.
