Signature snare drum of the thunder from down under.
The VG-1450 Virgil Donati signature snare drum features a 5" x 14" shell with four outer plies of 100% maple over four inner plies of 100% birch. The 8-ply shell produces a super bright tone accentuated even more by the four inner plies of birch. With a rounded top bearing edge many drummers will find that they can play this drum wide open without any muffling. The drum's impressive styling is capped with die cast chrome hoops and a smoke flake finish. Other features include chrome-plated brass tube lugs, ultra-precise stainless steel tension rods and the SR-017 Vertical Pull Strainer.
