Based on our popular 14” design, the new Limited Edition 16” S.L.P. Duo Birch snare drum takes this innovative concept and carries it forward to explore new tones and timbres. The shell itself is comprised of a 7mm thick, 7ply Birch shell, providing a clear, powerful, and focused tone. As the name suggests, a Duo snare is fully capable of performing double duty as a floor tom (legs included) or as secondary snare drum. The 16” diameter affords a wider and more dramatic sound, and the 10” depth affords all sorts of unique tuning possibilities, especially with the snare wires engaged. The drum also comes standard with the EMAD™ head from Evans®. This head comes with two different size foam inserts, allowing the player to easily control overtones by applying just the right amount of muffling for a strong and articulate sound.
