Dixon

Description

This Dixon Cornerstone hammered steel snare is built for drummers who love the spotlight. Crafted for the perfect combination of volume and sensitivity, the 1 mm steel shell has an especially sweet response at mid-to-high tunings. When cranked tight, this snare can really open up, projecting clearly through even the loudest guitars and synths. Thanks to the extensive hammering, the tone has a touch of warmth that’s noticeable even at lower volumes. The 2.3 mm steel triple-flange Power Hoops resonate with the shell to make sure rim shots really sing.

Beyond the sound, what makes this Cornerstone drum stand out is the plating. Titanium-plated snare drums are among the most stunning and sought-after models Dixon makes. Each hammered steel shell is layered with titanium, then heated to a specific temperature to produce a colored mirror effect. Under stage lights, the plating and chrome hardware complement each other perfectly. Look close to see the darkening effect created by the hammer creases, resulting in a cool two-tone effect that is slightly different from every angle.

To keep the drum looking brand new, Dixon includes a nylon carrying bag with velvet fabric lining and a detachable shoulder strap.
