Snareweight #5

Snareweight #5 is the fifth generation, built for metal triple flange hoops (die cast hoops need a pro lock- see pro lock). It's made to last of a weighted solid 3/4lbs. chunk of CNC'd brass. The weight, friction of leather insert and magnet, all work together to create what we call "expressive dampening"- giving color options to your playing all the way through the dynamic range.

The neodymium arched magnet secures the Snareweight to the hoop while at the same time securing the leather insert of your choice for your dampening digs. Snareweight #5 is the only body you will ever need. Slide the #5 around the rim with one hand while hitting the drum with the other until you find the sweet spot.

--------------------------- INCLUDES: Brass Body /Standard Insert /Case

---To make sure your hoop is right for snareweight- try a household magnet against the rim, if it attracts, you have a triple flange hoop and #4 is all you need. If not check out the snareweight + pro lock for die cast hoops. Any questions email a pic of your drum to:

Since the 1st designs of 2011, there has been a few improvements to the magnet and magnet enclosure. Recessed screws now anchor the magnet as well as a raised brass lip to prevent the magnet from chipping. Also we included what we call the "absorber" above the magnet to prevent jitter at certain tuning. This also costs more to manufacture but we feel in the long run it's worth it.

Other info: Snareweight #5 is our flagship damper offering the most options for dialing in the right amount of dampening quickly.

Snareweight adds mass to the head which helps to evenly smooth the lower-mid ringing frequencies that can't be reached with other methods while keeping the tone of your shell in tact. The unwanted ring of the high frequencies are shaped by the chosen insert in a snap by matching the insert with your favorite drum head.

From an engineering stand point with the weight of a Snareweight #5, you get about 2-3 db of compression from your drum, which helps to reel it in for optimum recording levels and sitting in the mix without the need for more outboard gear, eq/compression, usually better to fix it from the source.

It turns out, the only way we like the finish of the brass is to do it by hand. This hand done work is reflected in the price. This new batch really turned out amazing and stoked to get it out to drummers that want the most out of their drum. Size: 1.87” wide x 2.44 “ long x 0.66” thick

Feel the rim shot, hear the shell, target which ring..... :) True mass is the only way. Solid brass is the best way! Hear more snap, more color and clarity from the edge of the head to the center, rim shots pay off......, after 8 years, it's still there!!
