VK (VAN KLEEF) 14 X 6.5 TITANIUM IMPERIAL SNARE DRUM, BLACK WITH GOLD HARDWARE
We are very pleased to welcome Van Kleef to Drumazon. We are big fans of Alan's work. The look and sound of all his drums combined with his own 'made-in-house' snare mechanisms, lugs and even hoops make him a one of the truly great custom drum makers. Proudly all made 'in-house' in the UK, VK drums have found their way in to the collection of many professional drummers across the world because of their distinctive 'must have' sound.
This is a special edition snare which Alan has gone to town with. The drum has that winning combination of Black and Gold, the titanium shell and stainless steel hoops are black, even the drum head hoops are black! Everything else on the drum is Gold! - Another masterpiece!. The titanium snare has the look and feel of a vintage drum, but with the benefits of modern technology. This drum is made from grade 1 titanium, which is the purest form, and the best choice for that titanium snare sound.
The Van Kleef Titanium has a unique sound that, combined with the resonant qualities of the aircraft titanium shell range from deep, fat tones at low tuning, to subtle, articulate tones at slightly higher tuning. The construction of these drums is another reason the drums sound so good.
