Schagerl Instruments is now one of the leading manufacturers of premium quality and custom brass instruments in the world. We are excited to announce that Schagerl Drums is the newest incarnation of this dedication to excellence.
Antares is the brightest star in the constellation scorpius and is the fifth-brightest observable star in the night sky. Named for its equal footing to the Greek God Ares, it is easy to see why Schagerl chose Antares as the name for its line of brass snare drums. Each drum makes a bold statement with heavy yellow brass tube lugs and a raw finished 0.7mm brass shell. Adorned with 2.3mm yellow brass over steel hoops, the Antares evokes images of battle-worn Grecian armor while retaining a subtle elegance.
The multi-step Trick Drums strainer allows for precise tension adjustments making the Antares suitable for conventional kit playing as well as orchestral work. The shell itself is dramatically undersized at the top and the bottom to create a tympani effect with remarkable resonance. The raw finished brass will retain its gorgeous looks due to a lacquer covering. No two Schagerl raw finish drums are alike.
Each Schagerl Antares Snare Drum ships with a custom padded soft carry case and velvet bag for storage and polishing.
