The A&F Drum Co. 14'' x 5.5'' Steam Bent Maple Snare Drum boasts a handmade, steam bent solid maple shell and is fitted with raw brass hardware for a natural finish. The snare has a standard size of 14'' x 5.5'', however, the attention to detail and the intuitive construction process is what allows it to stand out in the market. The entire drum is handmade, including the raw brass hardware. The hardware includes high-quality maple hoops and 8 raw brass lugs and claws, each contributing towards the structural integrity of the shell. The snare, like all A&F drums, is built to order and is handmade in the A&F Drum Co. factory/workshop in Austin, Texas. Never before has a snare offered so much in the way of tonal quality, which is why the Steam Bent Solid Maple Snare Drum is perfect for use either on stage or in studio. The Rum maple oil gives the snare a beautiful, warm glowing finish that will be sure to set all eyes on you.
A&F Drum Co. (Antoun & Family Drum Company) is a boutique drum company based in Austin, Texas, formed in May of 2016. Designer and president of the company, Ramy Antoun, set about producing a raw brass snare drum to replicate sounds and looks from treasured snare drums of the past. Antoun worked together with local craftsman, Steve Furcinitti, and began following his ambition to create a truly unique, hand-crafted brass snare drum. After some time, the A&F Drum Co. Original 14'' x 4'' Raw Brass Snare Drum was born, with production limited to 100 models.
Following the great success of the snare, Antoun returned to Steve Furcinitti in hope of creating an exclusive wood drum kit to partner with the existing snare. A&F Drum Co. continue to produce high-quality products to order, up to this day. Club and Field series kits feature 6-ply shells in either maple or mahogany, with curated finishes, an A&F reverse baseball outer edge and leather washers. Each drum series offers its own distinct character, tone and aesthetic due to its specific combination of materials and components.
