British Drum Company Merlin 14" x 6" 20ply Maple / Birch Hybrid Snare Drum - Custom Finish
Using master drum builder Keith Keough's secret blend of maple and birch to achieve one of the most versatile wood shell snare drums on the market. The combination of the 20 ply shell and 45 degree bearing edges mean this snare drum can be tuned high without choking and even tuned low for a fat thunderous sound but still retains its warmth and tone no matter how you use it.
The Merlin Series snare is ideal for a wide range of musical styles from light brush work to the heaviest of hitters!
