SAKAE 14 X 8 BUBINGA NATURAL SNARE DRUM (SK-SD1480BV) (PRE-LOVED)
Here we have a PreLoved Sakae 14 x 8 Bubinga, originally supplied by us a little over a year ago. This is an absolute beast! 10 ply, 10mm thick 100% Bubinga Shell. This drum sounds absolutely awesome! Crank it up or tune it down for fat back beat style playing. This drum reminds me of the 1980's style Sonor Signatures and Tama Artstar series snares, a really versatile and attention grabbing snare that will only gain value in years to come as Bubinga becomes harder to source.
The Snare Strainer has a smooth operation and is easy to engage, whilst the wires have increased thickness and more strands giving a crisp, sharp response.
The Sakae Union Lug has the classic looks of a tube lug with more sophistication! The "tube" part of this lug is heavy and completely independent from contact with the drum. This ensures that "tube" part of the lug does not affect the vibration of the shell.
The snare is in great condition, we have also fitted it with a new Remo batter head. The original snare wire and factory snare side head are still fitted and have plenty of life left in them. The previous owner did fit an internal microphone to this drum which has since been removed, there is an XLR jack still fitted which could be used with another microphone and a small hole where the microphone assembly fitted.

PreLoved - 9/10 Condition - Great snare that has had very little use, the microphone modification has left one hole, if not wishing to fit another microphone we would suggest fitting a small air vent to tidy it up and then this snare will look as good as new.
