Joyful Noise
The Joyful Noise Elite Series represent the pinnacle of JNDC instrument design in both art and function. The Esprit Elite metal snares are inspired by the vintage snare drums of the 1920's and 1930's, which were accented by intricate hand-engraved scroll or panel patterns.

The Joyful Noise Esprit Elite is exquisitely faceted in a hand-engraved feather motif scroll adorning the drum in a mirrored fashion above and below the center bead. The Esprit Elite is plated in pure silver and accented with 24k gold-plated hoops and hardware components. These extraordinary drums are hand-engraved by the world-renowned master drum engraver and vintage drum historian, John Aldridge, who painstakingly renders the scroll design to life, never engraving any two drums the same. Each drum is truly one-of-a-kind, both aesthetically and sonically.

Hand-selected for their increased mass and density, these seamless brass shell drums are extremely musical and bell-like in their tonal quality, yet very articulate and focused in their responsiveness. Once the shell is hand-selected, the bearing edges and snare beds are finished by hand in order to refine and optimize the sonic performance. The brass shells will tend to be more colorful in their high-end register and harmonic series, resulting in extraordinary vibrancy. The Esprit Elite possesses an explosive power that is literally felt, as well as, heard, making it ideal for both recording applications and live performances.

The Esprit Elite model design and hardware consist of 2.5mm solid brass hoops, ten solid brass Corder tube lugs, bell-flanged bearing edges, vintage-inspired crimped snare beds, 24k gold-plated brass JNDC feather motif drum badge, and the proprietary cast bronze JNDC One Touch Classic snare drum strainer system.

A certificate of authenticity, serialized lapel badge, JNDC Strainer Tutorial DVD, and a complimentary embroidered soft shell case accompany each instrument.
