Noble and Cooley Alloy Classic 14 x 6 Flanged Chrome Snare Drum
Noble and Cooley has come to the rescue with their Alloy Classic snare drum. This drum is made from cast aluminum (not rolled from sheet metal), and then CNC machines cut bearing edges and snare beds to incredibly tight tolerances. Add to this the famous cast brass Noble and Cooley throw off, low mass brass tube style lugs, cam action snares, and a choice of heavy triple flanged or die cast hoops, and you have one unbelievable snare drum. This 14" dream drum is available in 6” or 4 7/8 depths, and your choice of black or raw (stunning silver aluminum) shells, with either chrome, back chrome, or brass finished hardware.
So does this drum really deliver all those qualities…..??? We think it does!
The Alloy Classic is built of cast aluminum, as opposed to rolled sheet metal, or sliced from tubing. This process gives the drum a porous shell, resulting in denser sound. By tuning the heads high, the drum still maintains the "crack" or "pop" of a metal drum, while looser tunings give way to the warmness more commonly associated with a wood shell.
The Alloy Classic uses the famous N&C brass throw-off and patented cam action snares. The lugs are low-mass brass tube style lugs, and the rims are triple flanged with die cast as an option. The hardware is either chrome or black chrome.
The Alloy Classic shell is machined after casting. The bearing edge and shell dimensions are kept to a tight tolerance, while lathing and CNC machining produce a drum of incredible consistency.
