AKA "The Masterly"
The Barbary series feature an array of beautifully crafted stave and segmented drums.
The Barbary Series have all the high end features that really make a snare drum special; quality tone woods and shell construction, die cast hoops, quality snare strainer and complete with a beautiful high gloss finish.
The Stave variant of the Barbary series makes for a quality built, highly projecting and tonally pleasing snare drum. Stave drums by nature, have a thunderous projection and attack! Our Barbary series are very much 'to the point", with a reasonably short, sharp attack and a short decay. Although overtones are present, they are controlled and focused, allowing more scope for fine-tuning the overall sound of the drum. The addition of die cast hoops and a high gloss finish add to the overall attack and brightness of the sound!
The segmented variant of the Barbary series makes for a quality built and tonally pleasing snare drum that is extremely versatile. Segmented drums by nature, tend to have a "wetter sound' than their stave counter parts, with a slightly more subtle attack, medium sustain and longer decay. Although overtones are present, they are controlled and focused, allowing more scope for fine-tuning the overall sound of the drum. The addition of die cast hoops and a high gloss finish add to the overall attack and brightness of the sound.
The Black Walnut- produces a sound that is aggressive, warm and woody, performing excellently at all tuning ranges.
The Mahogany - produces a sound that is warm and fat with boosted mids, performing excellently at all tuning ranges. For that classic Mahogany sound and high end features, this snare drum makes for a wonderful package.
