Description: The Power-Lite marching snare drum is lightweight, and offers traditional sound with simple operation.

The 8-ply mahogany and beech shell provides warmth with punch, along with making it lightweight. These shells are manufactured using the exlusive Air-Seal System that ensures the shell is in-round, providing a pure fundamental tone.

Tuning flexibility is provided by the 1.6 mm. triple flange steel rims. These rims also enhance the low-end partials.

Zinc alloy lug casings with reinforced walls and webbing provide superior strength for high-tension tuning.

Strainer Throw-off
A traditional strainer throw-off provides simple, one-point adjustment.

The 20-strand, high-carbon steel snare wires provide a crisp snare response, creating a bright sound.

Nylon and Steel Washers
The nylon and steel washers allow smooth tuning at high tension.

Three protective feet protect the snare mechanism and bottom head.

ET Carrier Clip
The ET carrier clip allows for quick, easy, and secure carrier attachment.

Available in 13" model only.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Light weight, shiny hardware, Decent sound
Cons: Stock heads break easily.

Great looking drum. But if you want a good drum. Save up and get an Sfz. The snares are metal so it doesnt have that nice KACK sound.
