New Snare Drums By Peace
By Salman Haqqi Published February 21, 2010
It took a keen eye, but viewers of Super Bowl XLIII last year caught a glimpse of a Peace aluminum snare drum being played during the halftime show by Bruce Springsteen’s Max Weinberg. Peace’s extensive line of snare drums is being buttressed by the addition of four new offerings. The SD-148A and 148B are steel shell, 10-lug snares. The triple-flanged 1.6mm hoops, lugs, throw-off, and shell are all glowering gloss black. The SD-148A is a versatile 14” x 6” drum, while the SD-148B is a 13” x 3.5” piccolo specialty. The new SD-531BBN and 531BOC feature 14” x 5.5”, 10-lug, 9-ply maple shells. Hoops are triple-flanged, 2.3mm thickness, and tube lugs accent the lacquer-finish shells. The new BBN variant features Brushed Black Nickel finish hardware, and the new BOC finish is called Brushed Old Copper, each darkly radiant in beauty, with the BOC finish imparting an antique vibe to the look.
