Joyful Noise Drums @ 2013 Winter NAMM

You can always count on Joyful Noise to have some of the most interesting metal snare drums at the NAMM Show. This year the company’s president Curt Waltrip showed us his newest snare drum series called The Concord, which is Waltrip’s realization of a thicker-shelled copper drum with solid brass hoops. As is the case with most Joyful Noise drums, The Concord display drum sported a roughly textured patina that managed to look both unfinished and attractive at once.
