4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Proudly Handcrafted in Taiwan

The SJC Drums Alpha Snare Drum is proudly handcrafted in Taiwan by a team of passionate drum builders, who share the same vision as SJC. Taking a new approach to expanding their company, SJC are visiting factories around the world to form relationships with other drum builders, allowing SJC to increase their market whilst offering the same attention to detail and high-quality drums that all SJC Custom Drums are renowned for.

The Snare

The SJC Drums 14 x 6.5 Alpha Snare Drum features a 1mm rolled steel shell with high-quality chrome hardware and a polished chrome finish. The Alpha Snare features classic 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, alongside SJC shield lugs for reliable and consistent tuning. A polished chrome finish upon maple gives the snare a classic look and feel whilst maintaining its distinctive bright and versatile tone. Every drum is individually tuned and played to ensure that they are ready to be played upon arrival, meaning that SJC's astonishing tone is at the player's immediate disposal.

Hardware

The Alpha Snare uses high-quality chrome hardware, including 2.3mm triple-flanged steel hoops, SJC shield lugs, and a drop-style throw off for easy access to control over your snare strands. The standard SJC snare wires provide a great mix of shell tone and snare wire snap, further assisting the definition of the snares dynamic sound. The 2.3mm hoops work together with the shield style lugs to keep your drum accurately and consistently tuned throughout your performance or session.

Manufacture

With a great sound also comes a great aesthetic. The distinctive SJC badge located on the shell proudly mark the snare as a product of high-quality manufacturing and craftsmanship. The SJC Custom Snares retain ultimate sound quality as well as a classic appearance.

About SJC Drums

With humble beginnings in Mike and Scott Ciprari's (SJC) Grandmother's basement, SJC has since developed into one of the world's leading drum manufacturers and suppliers. In the beginning, the brothers were determined to pioneer the sound of a generation tirelessly seeking to improve themselves and their drum kits until they had reached a state of perfection. As the brother's skills progressed and they got better at building, they thought it a good idea to get some of their friends to play their kits and start to spread the word. Bands such as 'A Wilhelm Scream' and 'Strike Anywhere' were some of the few endorsements from the brothers. SJC's turning point came when the musical sensation 'Panic! At the Disco' played the MTV music awards in 2006. This pivotal moment enabled the brand to branch out and endorse a variety of bigger and more diverse bands like 'Hawthorne Heights', 'Aiden' and 'Cobra Starship'. Expanding their already impressive artist roster, SJC began to reach unprecedented heights and managed to move out of their grandmother's basement and into a warehouse, enabling SJC to introduce a small number of new dedicated staff.

Embracing the game of innovation, SJC has consistently created drums that produce high-quality tone and a distinct character, often to the exact specification of high profile artists. In the last two years, SJC has signed drummers Branden Steineckert (Rancid), Cyrus Bolooki (New Found Glory), Zach Lind (Jimmy Eat World) and Tre Cool (Green Day). With all these world renowned artists previously being endorsed by huge international companies, it speaks volumes of SJC for their desire to switch to a custom company.

Always on the cutting edge of innovation, SJC has always focused on making the drummer the focal point of any performance.

With a virtually endless list of custom options, SJC prioritises the drummer's specific requirements whilst never compromising their classic and unique sound. With an ever expanding list of big names upon their roster, SJC has been a consistent choice for many renowned drummers the world over, emphasising their commitment to quality and sound.

Reviews

"I've played on literally every brand of US drums out there, and I've finally found my home. I've been looking from drums like these my whole life. True American hot rod custom kits. From the look and sound to the service and attention, it's good to now be part of the SJC family." Tré Cool - Green Day

"I have no clue how I just barely started playing these drums, they sound incredible! Not sure what rock I was living under. I can't express how proud I am to now be part of SJC and get to play these amazing drums every night." Dave Joyal

"Me being real and honest: I am so proud to play SJC Drums. They have treated me so well since I started playing them 5 years ago. Thank you!" Rian Dawson- All Time Low
