Black Swamp, Snare Drum – Multisonic
The Black Swamp Multisonic Concert Snare Drums are the ultimate choice for the modern snare drummer.
Introduced in 2002, the Multisonic Snare System meets the challenge of repertoire spanning centuries, and allows you to instantly and silently switch combinations of cable and wire, giving the discerning artist complete control over the voicing and character of the drum.
The Multisonic Snare System
The Multisonic System is still the most advanced, versatile, and silent snare system of its kind in the world. Five separate snare units can be tensioned and activated in any combination to suit your musical situation, drum tuning, and performance space.
The 7-ply Maple shells offer an excellent balance of characteristics that have made it a workhorse in concert and orchestral music for over a century. Our bearing edges are shaped to bring out the natural body, warmth, and clarity that maple has to offer.
Unibody™ Solid Shells
Unibody™ Solid Shells are crafted in our own facility using hand-picked prime lumber. Solid shells have an added dimension of body and sensitivity not found in other types of wood shells. Play a Black Swamp solid shell snare and watch your colleagues turn their head!
Brass is a commanding voice in Black Swamp snare drum arsenal. It’s bright and very sensitive, with a character that can cut through the thickest orchestral textures. However it still retains a measure of tone due to the thin wall and flanged bearing edges.
Titanium is inherently crisp and articulate, but retains a pleasing warmth that will surprise and delight your ears. These drums “play deep” and have an exceptional tuning range. All the hardware holes are cut by laser, and we then craft the bearing edges and satin finish by hand. Truly a fabulous instrument to add to your drum collection.
Multisonic Series snare drums are available in different finishes, depending on shells:
- Maple Shells, available in a satin Cherry Rosewood or Concert Black finish;
- Unibody™ Solid Shells, available in different Wood Species;
- Beaded Brass, available in Black Nickel Plated finish;
- Titanium Elite, available in Brushed Satin finish.
Multisonic Series snare drums include the Deluxe Padded Drum Case, a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth and the Black Swamp Drum Key.
Multisonic Series snare drums are tuned, tweaked and tested by a professional percussionist before to leave the factory.
