The Black On Brass series snare drums from Ahead showcases a number of features that really makes this snare stand out from the rest.

The shell is made from a thin, unbeaded brass shell finished in black chrome for a striking and polished finished.  10 chrome tube style lugs surround the shell and TighScrew tension rods featuring nylon inserts are added to prevent detuning.

 

The hoops are the famous S-Hoops, which are triple flanged and 2.3mm thick.  Each hoops is folded at a slight angle to give the bend some width, which allows you to achieve easy cross stick sounds and amazing rimshots.

 

The 24-strand Fat Cat snare wires feature a central band of 12 and two bands of six wires on each side.  The middle 12 can be independently tightened or loosened from the other wires, which allow making very subtle shifts in tone and response.

 

The drum is topped of with the classic piston-type Dunnett throw off for smooth response and action.

 

This snare drum has a big, fat and meaty sound yet can also be adjusted for extreme sensitivity.  It's the best of both worlds!

Ahead 6x13 Snare Drum

Comments about Ahead Black On Brass Snare Drum (Assorted Sizes):

I lost 11 priceless snare drums in a fire. To replace these I purchased a Ludwig 6.5x14 Supraphonic (gotta have it), a 5.5x14 Mapex Stainless Steel, a DW 6x14 maple, and a Sonor 5x13 Birch. What was missing was a nickle plated brass drum to replace my Ludwig Black Beauty. I previously had a 5x14 Worldmax Black Dawg that was pretty close to the BB. I did some research and decided on the Ahead 6x13. WOW!!! This drum is everything you could want in a nickle plated brass drum. It sounds great live and it records like a dream. It has that high-mid crack with just the right amoint of ring. The attack is defined and the punch is present. The only thing I did was to change out the FatCat snares with Puresound Customs. You can't go wrong with this snare drum.

      Comments about Ahead Black On Brass Snare Drum (Assorted Sizes):

      I also have a Ludwig Black Beauty which deserves it's stellar reputation. The Ahead Black over Brass snare is often compared to the Ludwig product. I'm happy to have one of each. The Ahead snare in the 6"x 13" size is an amazing alternate snare. I intend on picking up a 6" x 14" as well. It has a sound like nothing else. It's rimshot is amazing thanks to the S-hoop. Try one out. You will be glad you did.
