Turning dreams into drums for 20 years. The ultimate visual statement. SJC's Plaid 14" x 6" Maple Snare Drum is a truly custom snare, released to coincide with Christmas 2020. Featuring a printed, red plaid finish, black hardware and a denim SJC shield, we're certain that you've never seen a snare like this one. Not only is the Plaid Snare Drum an impressive fashion statement, but with an all-maple shell, it's equally impressive to the ears. There's a reason that maple is arguably the most popular drum shell tonewood around. Clear, warm tones with balanced, full-bodied projection make the Plaid Snare a real force in any setting - the studio, the stage or the practice room. It would make a fantastic choice as an upgrade snare drum, or a unique addition for a drum collector.

Housed in one of SJC's proprietary M5 maple shells, the inside of this snare drum is as unique as the outside. With five alternating horizontal and vertical plies, the sonic result is a brilliant balance of feel and sound - featuring enhanced resonance, increased tonal range and ease of tuning. The Plaid Snare offers the perfect balance of attack, smooth sustain and controlled overtones in any playing situation.
Known as plaid in North America, the name that us Europeans associate with this familiar pattern is undeniably tartan. Tartan has adorned countless kilts, Western-style shirts and cardigans throughout history. With SJC's innovative finishing processes, you can now celebrate this iconic design with a snare drum that's as limited as it gets. The SJC Plaid Maple Snare is sure to capture the attention of your audience.
