Producing the deepest of soft tones, The Big Softy is the warmest snare in our collection.
Critically acclaimed and revered by the professionals as a studio snare, onstage, whether in a club or arena, this big-sounding 14” x 6.5” is a potent reminder of just how accurately our design concepts target specific sonic responses as well as providing the flexibility to tune up or down a notch to boost the highs or accentuate the lows.
While its 6.5” depth and 9 ply shell with cherry inner and outer veneers accentuate the warmth of its response, the key ingredient is its kiln-dried ochroma core. This surprisingly light hardwood has a micro-pore grain structure that filters out higher frequencies, so bigger, warmer and funky sounds are achieved without detuning. You can now crank up your batter head to a responsive rebound rate for you sticking and still play big and funky backbeats. Beautiful rounded bearing edge adds to the "fatness" of the sound.
