MECANICAL PARTS

Newly designed Single Point Lug

Unix snares drum lugs were designed with one idea in mind: Minimal shell contact. They are made of aircraft grade aluminum. This reduces the weight of the snare drum even further and offers in a more open, resonant tone. The floating insert is made of solid brass to guarantee precise tuning for years to come.




Strainer/Throw-Off 

We use the Dunnett R40 Swivel Lever Quick Release on all our snares. The Dunnett R40 throw-off represents state of the art design combined with solid reputation. The R40 incorporates more refinements and functionality and is reliable.​ Includes Quick Release snare and butt side mechanism.



Hoops 

We use 2.3mm heavy-duty chrome drum hoops as standard equipment, except on the Pure series. This Provides consistent shape, tension and clearer sound to our snare drum line. 



Snare Wires 

In order to provide a sensitive sound, we use German snare drum wires made from coiled steel wires with phosphor bronze end clips. The shape of the end clips creates more contact between the drumhead and the coiled wires giving the snare drum a fuller, more responsive snare sound.
