Concept™ Select and Concept™ Series Extensions
Pacific Drums and Percussion (PDP) announced the addition of five new metal snare drums, extending its PDP Concept™ Select and Concept™ Series Snares in a range of sizes and metals.
New to the range of its flagship Concept™ Select Snares are the 8 x 14 Aluminum and 8 x 14 Bell Bronze snares featuring seamless 3mm shells with a unique laser-engraved Art Deco insignia emblazoned on each drum. These curated heavy metal shells are finished with chrome dual-turret lugs, 20-strand snare wire, True-Pitch® tension rods, DW MAG™ throw-offs, and DW Heads™ by Remo. The Aluminum snare is fitted with natural walnut wood hoops secured with vintage low-profile claw hooks, while the Bronze version comes with triple-flange hoops.
Extending the range of Concept™ Series Metal Snares are the new 5 x 14 Aluminum, Brass, and Copper snare drums, which are all fitted with double-beaded rolled 1mm shells and finished with a brushed exterior for a bold, vintage-style satin appearance and glimmer. The hardware offers stylish dual-turret lugs and high-end DW appointments like a DW MAG™ throw-off, True-Pitch® tuning rods, 20-strand snare wire, and DW Heads™ by Remo.
