Design Lab Air Flow Venting - One of the amazing elements to playing the BP snare drums is the "feel" of the instrument. The venting is key to the feel and the overall resonance of the shells. Through painstaking testing, each BP snare drum is placed ideal quantity of vent holes leading to the best sound & resonance.
Double-ended Locking snare B lugs - Double-ended Locking snare B lugs make the drum screw wider range of adjustment. Also, reduce the contact of the lug screw to shell will lead to a better and pure sound.
SONIClear Bearing Edge
Allows the drumhead to sit flatter on the shell, making better contact. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range. For the serious player, the increased head-to-edge contact increases shell vibration, allowing the sonic nuances of the hybrid shell to stand out.
Allows the head to sit flush promoting ease of tuning, increased shell resonance & optimal tonal clarity. Typical heads cause the head to sit high resulting in tuning difficulty, poor shell resonance & lack of tonal clarity.
