At the heart of this very special limited edition snare drum is a spectacular shell made from 3000 year-old bog oak. The bog oak, carbon dated to approximately 1000BC, has been crafted into a 6mm thick 10-ply shell using our unique cold moulding process in our UK factory. We’ve then added a further 2-plys in bog oak reinforcement rings and round-over bearing edges to further unleash the naturally warm and dark sound of this incredible wood.
The Duke features 10-lugs, single-flange chrome plated hoops, mini butterfly claws, 24ct gold-plated slotted tension rods and is our first snare to feature our smooth-action Palladium MKII snare strainer.
The Duke snare drum - the past, present and future of snare drums.
