The SJC Tour Series maple snare drum boasts the same features, integrity and status as SJC's made-to-order drums — except these handcrafted American beauties are available on a touring drummer's schedule and budget. The SJC Tour is a traveling favorite thanks to its pure, powerful tone and crisp, cutting projection while SJC 45° bearing edges maximize volume and sustain. Tour Series snare comes equipped with SJC's iconic shield badge, and are tuned up and tested to perfection with Evans USA drumheads.

Select maple shells
As discriminating drummers know, not all maple plies are created equal. That's why your SJC Tour snare is built from 10 plies of select North American maple. These woods, in concert with SJC's nearly two decades of custom drum fabrication expertise, deliver the powerful projection and crisp, even tone that today's drummers demand.

Hand-cut bearing edges
Every SJC 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 Tour 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.

Tuned up with Evans USA heads
You can play out the day your Tour Series snare arrives at your door, thanks to a  set of hand-select Evans USA drumheads, which are expertly tuned by SJC before your drum leaves their facility. G2 Coated and 300 snare side heads are paired together for a truly powerful tone capable of sitting in any mix and setting.
