When I designed this drum I had one goal in mind: something completely different from the other snares in my collection. I decided on trying to recreate an old vintage drum with a deep fundamental and dry overtones. With rounded bearing edges and wood hoops the drum has a very dry character, which allows the deep overtones to come through without all of the harshness that can come with more modern designs.

Grover’s incredible attention to detail and quality craftsmanship took my idea and turned it into reality and it is truly an incredible drum. Not only does it have the sound I was initially looking for but it has a huge variety of sounds I can get from it depending on tuning/muffling. I have used it in the studio in Nashville and on the road and the result has been the same. Every single musician and engineer I have worked with have simply flipped for this drum. Also, it stands out visually as something unique which catches the attention of producers and engineers. I highly recommend Grover snares! I can’t wait to order another one!
