Orange County Drum & Percussion (OCDP) has announced its limited edition maple hybrid 14 x 6.5-inch snare drum, offering excellent projection, fine tone, and great looks.
The new hybrid snare employs special blended, 6-ply maple/poplar shells that provide a balanced sound between maple’s warm, full-bodied high/mids and poplar’s rich lows. The result is a snare that is highly versatile and works well for multiple musical genres. Two 1.75-inch side ports further enhance the snare’s big sound and increase overall volume.
The Limited Edition Hybrid Snare looks as great as it sounds. Its deluxe Halo Flake finish from world-renown Delmar USA creates an eye-catching, diamond-shaped sparkle when hit with stage lights.
Durability and strength are crucial in a performance instrument, and the Limited Edition Maple Hybrid Snare delivers on both counts. OCDP’s signature, high-quality shark-tooth lugs are set in the company’s classic 80/20 offset design and are cast in the USA. To top it off, these limited-edition snares come with a durable Remo UT coated batter head.
“When we call this a ‘Limited Edition’ instrument, we mean it,” assures OCDP Product Manager Clyde Miller. “Only 600 of these special drums will be produced. We put a lot of thought and care into the Limited Edition Hybrid Snare, and it has paid off. The sound is so balanced, you can use it for a wide variety of musical genres. Rimshots have serious bite. And wait until you see this beauty sparkle under stage lights! The entire design came out even better than we had hoped.”
The new OCDP Limited Edition Maple Hybrid 14 x 6.5-inch Snare will street for $199.99 USD and is available at Guitar Center and Musician’s Friend.
