This Second Hand Hayman Vibrasonic 14 x 5" Wood Snare Drum is a true vintage beauty. George Hayman was responsible for a speight of great drum kits and snares during the late ‘60s and early ’70s, and this Vibrasonic snare is a fine example of Hayman’s aspirations to produce the best possible drums.
These snare drums were designed to generate a high-volume cutting sound to service drummers who played in the then-new rock style. Louder and with fuller resonant qualities, this drum still holds up today. The Vinbasonic snare can also make the claim to be the first non-American snare drum to feature 10 lugs and possess a simple throw off.
Aside from their lugs, these snares other most distinguishable feature was their ‘Vibrasonic’ interior shell coating which consisted of seven coats of special metallic poly-urethane spray. This snares wonderful Gold Ingot brushed metallic finish and bronze badge identifies it as being produced sometime between ‘69 and ‘73.
With the Vibrasonic lining and fitted with 22 strand wires, this wooden snare is loud and bold and was originally even advertised as having the sound of a metal drum. This is your chance to own a great piece of British drum history at a very fair price indeed.
