A&F A&F'ers BELL SERIES 14 X 6.5 BELL COPPER SNARE DRUM
ANTOUN & FAMILY DRUM CO.
We have been huge fans of A&F right from the start! When we first heard and saw these incredible luxury boutique drums - we were just blown away.
A&F President and founder Ramy Antoun is a long time professional drummer who has an incredible drumming CV - playing sessions for artists such as Seal, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Willie Nelson and many more. When Ramy originally started the company he was in the pursuit of a look and sound that he had mapped out in his head for his own personal requirements. What followed from the results of that mission quickly snowballed in to a company with a 100 year business plan.
A&F's quest is to blend old-world craftsmanship with new world sounds and we believe their incredible sounds and beautiful designs have already changed the way in which many drummers now approach playing.
We are very proud to be A&F Drum Co’s UK home, we can’t wait to introduce you all to these drums.
A&F’ers...BELL SERIES COPPER SNARE
This has to be one of the finest snare drums we have ever heard! A&F worked closely with the one and only Sir Greg Wells to develop these radical drums! This is a drum that sounds exactly as a snare drum should, it works well tuned down and tuned up whilst always retaining the tone. This drum is lovely to play too we are very proud to have one from the first batch right here in the UK!
Then Tiffany Antoun came up with the name A&F'ers as well as a whole baseball themed logo, designed by the masterful Gary Dorsey of Pixel Peach!
All A&F'ers are made from A&F patented raw shells, lugs, and hardware and come with Remo Ambassador heads. A&F hand cut, roll, weld, and sand their shells and raw brass hoops, hand cut bearing edges and snare beds, and treat everything with their exclusive patina formula to jump start the ageing process. Then they add 2 rows of the patented raw brass lugs, hardware, and Remo Ambassador heads.
These snares weigh about 20-25 pounds. We strongly encourage you to come and play this drum!
