The Joyful Noise Drum Company Legacy Series snare drums feature reclaimed submerged North American hardwoods, which are old growth (600 to 800 years) reclaimed timbers, having been submerged in the Great Lakes over 150 years. The result is an extremely dense shell material with less mass, due to the wood being submerged under water for over a century. As a result, this wood is considered the quintessential wood for musical instrument construction. The Joyful Noise Drum Company Legacy Figured Maple snare is made from a hand-selected plank of musical grade North American Figured Maple, which is steam bent and milled into perfection. Figured Maple is denser than conventional Maple timber and, as a result, translates into an instrument with greater projection and musicality. Figured Maple is North American hardwood renowned for a clear high-end register; but due to the lower mass of submerged timber, the Legacy Series Figured Maple snare is exceptionally warm and powerful, possessing extraordinary middle and low-end registers. The tonal quality of the drum can best be described as vibrant, exhibiting a breath and openness uncharacteristic of a wood shell. The Legacy Figured Maple snare response is also extremely sensitive and articulate within all dynamic ranges, making it the ideal instrument for any musical application or genre. With bearing edges finished to machinist-grade tolerances and vintage-inspired snare beds cut to maximize snare response and color, these fine instruments are finished in a hand-rubbed pure Tung oil finish to maximize their vibrancy and unrestricted performance, both key attributes of Joyful Noise Drum Company steam bent wood shell design. The Legacy Series model design and hardware consist of 2.5mm solid brass bright nickel-plated triple flange hoops, ten solid brass bright nickel-plated Corder tube lugs, vintage-inspired snare beds, 24k gold-plated brass Joyful Noise Drum Company feather motif drum badge, and the bright nickel-plated proprietary cast bronze Joyful Noise Drum Company 'One Touch Classic' snare drum strainer (throw-off) system. A certificate of authenticity, serialized lapel badge, Joyful Noise Drum Company Strainer Tutorial DVD, and a complimentary embroidered soft shell case accompany each instrument.
