HOT GEAR Majestic Prophonic Brass Shell Snare Drum Majestic has released the Prophonic Brass Shell snare drum, which is crafted entirely from 1-mm brass. This thin shell features a double beaded design for strength and a traditional orchestral metal drum look. The special fold-back of the formed bearing edge ensures shell integrity while the snare bed is slightly deeper than most for optimum cable response. The sensitive char- acter of the drum makes it an ideal instrument for pianissimo to mezzo-forte dynamic ranges. The multi-link strainer system has four smooth independent triggers in addition to a master throw off, which allows the performer to adjust their timbre quickly and easily. The drum features four different snare cable types, a Remo Fiberskyn Diplomat batter head, and a Diplomat Hazy Resonant snare side head.
