The UNIKA snare drums are snares with a powerful and balanced sound. Their light structure, but at the same time solid and stable, give the musician the opportunity to experiment with any type of tuning without losing the main characteristics required of a professional snare drum, first of all characteristics referring to the attack and to the “body” of the sound. Together with these, sensitivity, dynamics and ease tuning starting from the lowest ones, providing overall excellent sound characteristics for all musical style.
TECHNOLOGY AND PROCESSES
Our shells consist of a “sandwich” structure, with two strong HPL (High Pressure Laminate) layers that have a minimum thickness of 0.8 mm to 0.9mm. The shell’s thickness depends on the type of colour and finish. These elements are connected by an internal band made from three alternate one-millimetre wooden layers. This particular structure lends considerable strength and stability to the shell. The rigid, lightweight structure, its perfect point of contact with the skin (Start Point), together with a new ST (Strong Traction) lug, are key to its extraordinary tuning range. In addition to providing a strong anchor point for the lugs, the internal HPL layer (a material not previously used to make drums) makes the shell waterproof, thus preventing deterioration over time.
Lightweight 2.3 triple flange hoops that provide low, defined harmonics.
Our fused block lug allows for the fluid, precise adjustment of strainer tension. A small magnet is included in the mechanism to ensure stability and grip over time.
