GMS 14" x 6.5" Revolution Copper Interior RVSDWBCO6514 GMS REVOLUTION SERIES Revolution Snares GMS’s new Revolution Series drums feature a thin coating of real metal on the company’s premium-quality maple drum shells. Available metal types include brass, copper, nickle/steel. Drummers can choose to have a metal coating on the inside, outside, or both surfaces of shell. (The coatings are visually striking and distinctive.) They can even mix and match different combinations of metal and wood—for example, nickel on the inside and bronze on the outside, or copper on the inside and wood on the outside. Revolution opens up a whole new palette for drummers to personalize their sound. The range of choices, both visual and sonic, is enormous. Adhering to the wood with a chemical cross-link bond, the metal is thin enough—approximately 1/32″—to make a negligible difference in the shell’s overall mass, therefore having no appreciable effect on its fundamental pitch. However, each metal type has a noticeable impact on the drum’s tone due to its characteristic reflection properties within the shell’s air column and the complementary interaction of wood and metal vibration frequencies. Bearing edges are left uncoated to promote a warmer tone, while the metal coating amplifies attack, projection, brightness, and bite. Each of the metal coatings adds its own distinctive vibe to the drum. If you have a brass lined drum, you’ll get that brass sound, but the mass of the maple gives the drum a lot of “thickness”, unobtainable in a metal-only drum. These drums have an incredible amount of “headroom”; when you really hit the drum, it just knocks you of your throne!! With Revolution, drummers suddenly have a hi-def tool for defining—and creating—their ideal drum sound.” Made In USA. HISTORY The GMS Drum Co. was started, with very little fanfare, in 1987. Rob and Tony met through Tony Fabiano, a mutual friend who owns the Long Island Drum Center of Little Neck, NY. Tony Gallino had been messing around with making production drums more “usable”. Things like getting the drums true, re-doing the bearing edges, installing better mounting hardware and so on. He also was crudely making throw-offs and lugs out of metal stock. While showing Tony Fabiano some of the things he was working on, Fabiano said “you have to meet Rob Mazzella. He’s a machinist. He could probably make these things a lot easier and faster”. Well the two met and instantly got into “shop talk”, and decided to make some prototypes. From these “prototyping days” came the original Grand Master Series lugs and throw-off, which are still in production today. The GMS philosophy was to make a drum which didn’t need to be fixed or “doctored” to be playable. One only had to take the drum out of the box, tweak to taste, and play! The drums were awesome! Everybody who heard and played them were floored by the tone, response and incredible openness that these drums displayed. It was like, wow! Can you make me some drums?? And that’s how it started…. Take a look at the timeline. These are but a few of the many innovations achieved by GMS. We are constantly seeking new and better ways to make drums. A maple snare drum with a metal liner? You got it. How about a real old sounding kit, but new, and without the shortcomings of the old stuff? Got that too! Take a look… Take a good look.
