Built to order by A&F Drum Co. in Austin, Texas, the A&F Bell Series snare drums are constructed entirely from raw metal, from the shell to the hardware and custom badge. This specific drum is made from a thin 4.8 mm steel shell, which is rolled and welded by hand to ensure that it resonates freely and evenly. The high, un-flanged brass hoops are secured with vintage brass claw hooks and lugs, and the entire product is treated with a special formula to jump-start the natural patina process. As a result, no two of these snares will look exactly alike.

Each drum weighs 20+ pounds and comes fitted with A&F-branded Remo Ambassador heads.
