"It‘s the best of vintage meets modern innovation and to play it is my dream come true."Gavin Harrison
One Of A Kind
The Signature Snare is handcrafted in Germany and will be offered in two sizes: 14" x 5.25" and 12" x 5". They are made from 6-ply, premium hand-selected Birch wood to make a thin 6mm shell. The timeless Silky Black finish is offset by white underlays between the chrome fittings and the shell.
Hybrid bearing edges - the Snare reintroduces the vintage round bearing edge on top which SONOR last produced in 1975. On the bottom a modern 45 degree bearing edge is featured.
Vintage lugs and hybrid hoops - Gavin‘s choice of lugs are the vintage Phonic lugs to add “mass” to the shell while eliminating stress from high tension. The Snares feature S-Hoops on the top side, and a special open, triple-flanged steel hoop on the bottom.
The snares are available in a Standard and Premium Edition: The Standard Edition includes the snare, a set of 3 dampening rings and 2 Protean tuning keys.
The Premium Edition additionally includes a unique Protean case, made by Hardcase UK. The case contains the “EQ” and “Spacer” snare wires, secured in a wooden box, separated from the drum itself.
