C&C Limited Edition Custom 14x6.5 Brass Snare Drum
Our thoughts: Now this guy here is something special. C&C have always built top-quality drums abundant in character and this is no exception. The shell is constructed of flat wall brass striking an aural balance between warm wood tones and the harshness typically found in most metal shells. The brass shell has additionally been dipped in copper, another metal that features darker and earthier characteristics. Resting by the modern 45 bearing edges are C&C's s-hoops (inward flange) which are effectively a variation on vintage Slingerland stick saver hoops with the 3rd flange directed inward. Shell hardware includes C&C's signature centred lugs as well as a deluxe mini throw off. The C&C logo is also hand engraved by Jon Aldridge. Oh, did we mention these are highly limited edition and collectible?
The verdict: So how does it sound? Well, it's dark and lively and sure has a lot to say. It's incredibly articulate and sensitive, actively responding to every movement. The tone is gnarly and brash with overtones galore. The fundamental is very prominent and it's very easy to get in tune. This is the perfect snare for the touring/recording rock drummer. It sings beautifully on command and is loud with swathes of attitude. We'll be sad to see it go...
