To commemorate its 20th anniversary, GMS Drum Co. has created a very special limited-edition snare drum. The GMS 20th Anniversary Snare Drum features a nine-ply ash shell comprised of eight plies of North American white ash with an outer ply of highly figured North American olive ash burl. Eight-ply North American maple retainer rings are beveled on both upper and lower edges to mellow sonic reflection inside the shell.
In a nod to fine vintage drums, the GMS 20th Anniversary Snare Drum is fitted with eight lugs, giving it a warmer tone and slightly softer feel than today's standard ten-lug models. With the vent hole repositioned, the drum has a fatter sound, balancing the significant high-end cut delivered by the nine-plus-eight ply configuration.
"This drum has warmth and bite," says GMS President and Master Craftsman, Tony Gallino. "It's got an old style vibe, but it will also rip your head off."
Finishing touches include GMS's new Special Edition snare drum lugs and classy 20th anniversary logo embedded in the high-gloss lacquer finish.
This is the 21st snare built in this limited run.
