Item ID: PSD1455SEC450
President Series Deluxe
From subdued to stratospheric, the guttural growl of President Series Deluxe snare drums speaks with a giving tonal push that digs deep into the groove.
The same shell material, lug combination, and bearing edge have been put into play to give you a sound that is grounded and sharp, but full of low-range overtone when played without dampening. Tempered using the internal shell muffler, the short, pillowy sound of every great AM Radio classic floods your senses.
The President Series Deluxe snare captures the tonal essence of an era, but its focused tuning range makes it far from a "One Hit Wonder".

Loud yet subdued, Lauan has a deep, punchy wallop with plenty of top-end attack.
