DEMO MODEL: This instrument has been opened and typically used by an artist or group at a clinic or performance event (i.e., a State Educator show, or Industry Trade show booth.) The instruments have not been previously owned, and with very few exceptions, are in original packaging. All DEMO model instruments still carry any manufacturer warranties - but at a lower cost to compensate for the limited usage. All specifications and details are identical to the brand new versions.
The Black Swamp Concert CM514BL 14x5 Ply Maple Snare Drum features a Concert Black Stain finish on the same 7-ply maple shell as the one used on the Multisonic and SoundArt drums. No sacrifice is made with the heart of the drum's sound. The distinctive Arch2 die-cast lugs feature self-aligning tension rod receivers for smooth, flawless tuning.
The die-cast throwoff is durable and reliable for years of trouble-free use. Black Swamp makes their own cable snares, then mount them at a slight angle which increases the dynamic response range. This balances the ability of the drum to speak fully at loud dynamics, while still being able to whisper when the music calls for more sensitivity.
The Concert Maple series embodies all the quality you expect from BSP at an entry level price. This drum is perfect for the percussionist or school that wants an excellent sounding concert drum that arrives tuned and ready to play. As with all our drums, this drum is made in the USA by musicians who know you expect quality and value.
Strainer - The die-cast strainer is stylish and durable with no chinsy plastic parts, increasing confidence in performance.
Wrap-Around Snares - Black Swamp cable snares are mounted at a slight angle to increase response, balancing robust tone with sensitivity. Blue Cable/Bare Cable combination snare balances a robust tone with sensitivity.
Hoops - 2.3mm Triple Flanged hoops are easy to tune and provide an open tone
And with Black Swamp Drums, each one is tuned, tweaked, and tested by a professional percussionist before it leaves the factory.
