Trixon Solist Hand-Hammered Steel Snare Drum
Size is 14 by 5.5″ Hand Hammered
Imagine every rimshot cracking like a fine tuned tower bell… this is the sound you can expect from the Solist Hand-Hammered Stainless Steel Snare Drum. If shooting up the stage isn’t your thing this snare has the ability to tune down for a powerful jazz sound.
The Precipitation-Hardening Martensitic Stainless Steel we use in these shells is one of the toughest and strongest varieties. Usually reserved for CNC machine technology, Trixon manufacturing has perfected the thinning of this high-chromium metal, hand-hammering the shell shape and then hardening it once again. The final process is the No. 9 Mill Finish that gives the hammered areas infinite lighting-depth. The end product is a snare that looks as great as it sounds.
Our shell hardware uses Low Mass Multi-Point Cylinder Lug Technology™. This technology allows for a single cylinder lug attached to the absolute middle of the drum shell to be anchored into the shell by multiple attachment points. The natural physics of our low mass cylinders direct tensioned-energy equally into the multiple mounting points on the lug. The arrangement of this hardware in relation to the shell minimizes the amount of metal-through-wood contact and maximizes sound producing area. Multiple point anchors assure equal drum head tension throughout the snare.
Trixon lugs, hoops and tension rods are CNC designed and created with our Infinite Tuning Technology™. The ability to tune the drum head to an almost infinitely desire of tension without fear of stripping the rods allows the players a greater range and the ability to tune for different sounds. Die cast copper hoops are spun to exact specifications before being TIG welded and laser cut for the tension rods. Die cast hoops resonate along the drum shell and increase sharpness, clarity and overtones.
Most importantly for our fans and players of Trixon Snares is our quality control process. We use X-Ray technology and random selection to ensure that every drum we produce is of the highest quality. We pride ourselves in being able to produce drums and incredible quality for players on honest budgets.
