Wembley Music Centre is proud to introduce the MUS1465S which is a 14 x 6.5-inch snare drum from the very reasonably priced Modern Utility series. In 14 x 5.5" dimensions, it really packs a punch and can be tuned tightly to a reasonably high pitch - while the depth means that it'll decay with a nice quickness that lends a snappy feeling.
The 1 mm-thick steel shell means that the drum vibrates with true metallic stiffness and therefore produces a whopping amount of volume. It sounds crisp and articulate regardless of the huge output and is extremely responsive to the players touch.
The shell hardware is great quality which makes the snare easy to tune and very reliable for any situation. It's perfect for constant usage and is a popular choice for a first standalone snare drum.
