Due to the chemical aging process, finishes may vary. Brass shell boasts an incredible range of tones. Ronn's brass-shelled Classic Model 2Ns are some of the most versatile brass snares on the market. From gnarly and overdriven to crisp and symphonic, the Model 2N's wide range of tunings means you're never far from inspiration. A center-beaded shell keeps the brass from becoming unruly, even at concert volumes, while non-flanged top and bottom bearing edges give this snare tremendous projection and sensitivity.
Ronn's chemical Antiquing process (shown) prematurely ages the metal for the patina'd look of an heirloom snare with today's dependability. George Way flanged hoops sound sweet and open. Dunnett's Way double-edged, double-flanged hoops give the Classic Model 2N the sweet top end and stiffness you get from die-cast hoops, but without the additional weight.
The result is a modern, open tone that drummers of all backgrounds will enjoy. R4 snare mechanism facilitates quick head changes. The handiest thing about the Dunnett R4 throw off is its quick-release mechanism, which lets you remove and replace snare wires for head changes without touching your settings - a feature which Sweetwater knows our session drummers will enjoy. The R4's lever swivels to either the right or left side for easy access however you set up, and an adjustable friction screw lets you tailor your tensioning resistance.
What sets apart a Dunnett Classic snare drum? Handmade, one at a time, from start to finish.
Dunnett Classic snare drums are made the same way they have been for the past 25 years: 100% by hand. Ronn sheers, rolls, and welds the shells himself, without lasers or CNC machines, then carefully maps and drills the holes by hand. He then hand-installs the hardware and cuts the snare beds. All Dunnett Classic snare drums come signed, serialized, and dated by Ronn himself, so you know you're getting a one-of-a-kind creation. Deep snare beds prevent buzzing and choking.
Snare beds are the dips/contours directly beneath the throw off mechanism and butt plate on a snare shell. Ronn asserts that many snare makers overlook the snare beds' crucial part in allowing the snare wires to move without choking the head. Dunnett Classic snare drums feature deep, "soft" snare beds - about the width of a single lug spacing - and allow his 42-strand Dunnett Presence wires to activate without buzzing or choking your tone. Optional venting when you need it. Dunnett Classic snare drums are devoid of a traditional air vent.
According to Ronn, the trapped air in a non-vented shell produces a 1:1 transmission of energy from the top head to the bottom head, maximizing sensitivity and response. Even so, if you're a heavy hitter or traditionalist and prefer the tone of a vented shell, the Dunnett Hypervent I adjustable air vent lets you open the shell with the twist of a dial.
