Heavy is in. While we've seen some drum designs go lighter in the past few years and several companies have re-introduced classic three-ply drum designs, there's also been an opposite movement, creating heavy high-pitched drums that cut through loud music. Orange County Drums and Percussion has entered this market their new ultra-heavyweight 25-ply Maple Snare drum.

OCDP's legacy is one of outrageous drum designs inspired by their founding endorsers like Travis Barker and Adrian Young. And, this one is no exception.

With 25 plies of solid maple, the ultra heavy OCDP 25-ply Maple Snare is a serious drum, built for maximum tone and ultimate control. It's designed for massive attack, fat tone, and crisp, biting, decay, according to the company. It's the kind of drum you break out for a huge backbeat.

The new OCDP 25-ply Maple Snare fuses 25 maple plies into a 14-inch by 7-inch dual port package with a silver sparkle fade finish and OCDP's signature offset lugs. It also features die-cast hoops and black nickel-plated hardware. It comes fitted with a premium Remo UT coated batter side head, and 20 steel-strand snappy snares, adjustable via a standard OCDP forward throw-off.

    "The snare is the centerpiece of a drummer's kit, and an expression of their personality," remarked OCDP Product Manager Gerry Helfrich "The new OCDP 25-ply Maple Snare drum delivers a big, bold, edgy sound that stands up and gets noticed. It's as individual as you and your music."

    The new 25-ply Maple Snare is available exclusively at Guitar Center and Musician's Friend.
