The extreme tension snare drum can accommodate all head types and remains full, open and sensitive at all levels of tension. Our exclusive support posts connect the tube to the shell, providing maximum stability while transmitting more vibration from the top casting down to the bottom of the shell. The snare drum combines the traditional design and functionality of a conventional marching snare drum with the ability to accommodate high tension tuning, made possible by a special aluminum bearing edge ring and die cast hoops.
Contender bass drums are available in six diameters and a choice of two shell depths to fit the needs of ensembles with varying tonal and weight requirements. This unprecedented range of options at this level opens the door for early introduction and affordable access to a set of tonal bass drums. These bass drums feature precision created basswood hoops with a matching inlay for lightweight strength and a bold finished appearance.
The Contender snare drum is available in a variety of sizes to accommodate a wide range of applications and sound preferences. Whether used for the very youngest players, casual adult ensembles or anything in between there is a Contender snare that will be a perfect fit. They utilize standard crimped wire snares and a simple traditional throw off for reliable performance and easy snare replacement.
