SIA 14 X 4 BLACK BUTT SOLID STAVE BLOCK SHELL SNARE DRUM
Here we have a Sia Black Butt solid stave shell snare drum. For any one who doesn’t know Sia yet, these drums are hand crafted by Sia Seysan out in New South Wales, Australia. Matt Parr is the man responsible for bringing them to UK shores.
The attention to detail on the drums is flawless and the drums come well appointed with high quality hardware components, heads and wires. Coming from Australia, featuring many hard woods indigenous to the area and being built using stave construction these drums are very similar to the old Brady Block snare drums, there is great volume, impressive mid range tone and plenty of tuning range. All Sia drums have a rock solid construction and are signed and dated inside.
14 x 4 Black Butt
The 1 4 x 4 size on this snare certainly lends itself to either the typical piccolo requirement but would be equally great for symphonic or jazz applications. The drum sounds great in higher tuning registers and is incredibly sensitive which will work perfectly for super dynamic playing and/or brushwork. If however you want a ‘crank-up present’ piccolo with higher voicing than a typical 14 x 5 size this drum would be an incredible choice.
