Zildjian 400th Anniversary Alloy Snare Drum, Limited Edition

This snare drum features a new, innovative shell casting process, using 100% pure Zildjian alloy direct from our cymbal foundry. Developed in collaboration with Latos Drums, the sound qualities of B20 Zildjian bronze inspired us to re-imagine a cast bronze snare from the ground up. While the Zildjian 400th Anniversary Alloy Snare Drum maintains the extreme volume ceiling, projection, and sonic power that cast bronze drums are known for, this drum was designed to be an expressive, deeply versatile instrument, and is equally at home behind an orchestra, in front of walls of amplifiers, in a jazz quartet, or as a platform for creative modern muffling and recording techniques.

With names like Dave Grohl, Steve Gadd, and Questlove on their artist roster, Zildjian is undoubtedly one of the top players in the drumming industry. Zildjian is not only one of the oldest cymbal manufacturers in the world with a nearly 400-year history, but also one of the oldest corporations overall. It moved from Turkey to America, where it now resides, partly in order to communicate with and learn from the many outstanding drummers who also inhabited that continent.
