We love to challenge the guys at N&C to do something a little bit different and they never disappoint us! This time we asked them make this rather classy Alloy Classic in Burgundy Matte. To complete the look the drum has Brass lugs and Black Chrome Hoops.
The original limited edition Zildjian Alloy Snare was the brainchild of Noble & Cooley and the Zildjian Cymbal Co.Built using the secret Zildjian alloy materials, it has become one of the most prized drums in the collector's market. The Alloy Classic is N&C's in house high-end alloy snare drum. This is one of N&C's most popular shells and is regularly used by the worlds biggest names in drumming.
The Alloy Classic is built of cast aluminum, as opposed to rolled sheet metal, or sliced from tubing. This process gives the drum a porous shell, resulting in denser sound. By tuning the heads high, the drum still maintains the "crack" or "pop" of a metal drum, while looser tunings give way to the warmness more commonly associated with a wood shell.
The Alloy Classic shell is machined after casting. The bearing edge and shell dimensions are kept to a tight tolerance, while lathing and CNC machining produce a drum of incredible consistency.
The Alloy Classic uses the famous N&C brass throw-off and patented cam action snares.
The lugs are low-mass brass tube style lugs, and the rims are triple flanged. The hardware is either chrome or black chrome.
F.Y.I.We Stock Noble and Cooley DieCast Hoops (Top and Bottom) in Chrome, Gold and Black Chrome, these are available as an upgradable option for all Snare Drums.
