Santa has probably closed his list, so hurry and enter Brady Drums contest to win 14” x 6.5” Spotted Gum snare in the hours remaining till Christmas.
Entries accepted up until 11:59pm on December 24. The winner will be notified by a personal telephone call from Brady founder Chris Brady on December 25.
The elegant drum, the Australian manufacturer's latest offering, is handcrafted from extremely thin shells of Spotted Gum, an unusually dense Eucalypt timber species (Eucalyptus Maculata) with an interlocked grain which can grow up to 70 metres / 230 feet high.
These super-thin non-reinforced shells come with unprecedented projection, while carrying a solid, low tone and providing a unique mix of warmth, attack, depth and projection.
All Spotted Gum snare drums are available only in their natural timber finish and are adorned with a special handcrafted inlaid parquetry Brady badge consisting of 31 individual pieces carved from 17 different species of wood.
So don’t come up short Xmas morning, visit Brady and enter while there’s still time.
A special shout-out to Jim Pettit of Memphis Drum Shop for the great photo.
