Select maple shells
Maple is king of the stage and studio. But as discriminating drummers know, not all maple plies are created equal. That’s why the SJC Providence snare is built from 10 plies of 100% choice North American maple. These woods, in concert with SJC’s two decades of custom drum fabrication expertise, deliver the powerful projection and crisp, even tone that today’s drummers demand.

Hand-cut 45° bearing edges
Every SJC Providence bearing edge is hand cut and shaped to perfection. This level of precision allows heads and shells to resonate to their full potential. It also promotes long-lasting, even tuning.

Heavy duty hoops and hardware
SJC Providence Snare drums are outfitted with 3.0mm triple flanged hoops to add extra focus and controlled sustain. Paired with SJC's drop throw and 20 strand wires, it provides an ideal snare tone right out of the box with versatile tonal capability.
