Monarch series drums employ a 3-ply configuration, based on very popular drums-1 produced by several drum companies of the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. These drums produce a warm, round and punchy tone, with few overtones; they sound equally well along the tuning spectrum, whether tuned high or low. Monarch drums are extremely studio friendly and record exceptionally well.
All Monarch drums feature the time honored 3-ply construction which contain a poplar core that is sandwiched between any number of different species of wood. The most common configuration is mahogany-poplar-mahogany, with solid steam bent hard maple reinforcing hoops. This Monarch snare is finished in a gorgeous Peacock Satin Flame wrap.
Monarch snare drums offer a vintage sound with excellent response at any playing volume. They possess a very wide tuning range; able to produce a high end crack or a low, fat back beat and are extremely versatile for most any playing situation.
