8 lugs, 6-7mm shell wall with sculpted reinforcement rings.
Fatboy is our most requested snare drum and little wonder. A stunning development in snare drums this snare drum offers a very fast and crisp snare response and an endless variety of tuning possibilities.
Again, as with the 14×6.5” snare drum, the use of quarter sawn, air dried ‘compression timber’ results in a more focused central note with few overtones. Not as loud as a standard range Fatboy, the emphasis here is on a richer, deeper tone with a very direct and defined impact.
PARTS: generic tube lugs, Fidock/Trick multi-step throwoff and Remo Heads (animal skin drum heads such as calf, kangaroo, etc, are also available by request)
TIMBER: QUARTER SAWN FIGURED BLACKWOOD FELLED FOR FIDOCK DRUMS AND CUT FROM THE FIRST 1.6m OF THE TREE. AIR DRIED AND SEASONED IN-HOUSE.
