ARMOR High Tension Snare Drums
Our wood shells are made with a 9-Ply Mersawa wood foundation which offer a fiber outer layers to make a composite shell. The use of these outer layers also helps aid in the durability and protection from the elements that helps extend the life of the drums.
One piece patented 100% carbon fiber hoops help to focus every attack, and provide better resonant abilities to the head, shell, and snare guts. It’s high strength results in extended durability when compared to it’s metal counterparts.
The aluminum alloy high tension rings helps keep the light-weight aspect that Mair strives for, while providing a standard feature performers are used to.
The strainers are made with the CNC machining, and helps to make the use of the throw-off simple and effortless.
The quick-strainer-system, allows the snare guts to be removed quickly for last minute head changes, or gut tuning all without removing the entire mechanism off the drum. The snare guts can be either individually or group tuned while being lifted into the vertical position, and maintain it’s settings even when being removed completely from the drum.
The snare mounting system allows the drum to be flipped up or down when not in use, and features rubber stoppers to prevent wear on both the drum and carrier during pivoting.
Mair marching snare drums feature three unique Free Form Feet that allow the drum to be placed safely on various surfaces either during performance, between rehearsals, or for storage. The Free Form Feet are sturdy, yet flexible, and allow for a range of positions when being set down without the possibility of damaging the surface or drum by being overly rigid and stiff.
6mm high tension rods are standard on all drums, and are produced in Taiwan.
Chromed Vent holes are made using precision CNC machining, and helps to alleviate air pressure within the drum resulting in a more natural feel and sound.
The shells are 7.5mm thick with a classic 45° bearing edge that makes the sound warm and helps maintain a better resonance through the tonal range.
All drums come standard with REMO Drumheads to offer the best and purest sound possible, right out of the box.
