The Black Swamp Symphonic SA1215MST-CB 15x12 Maple Field Drum Trio Strainer, Black has a traditional field drum sound with modern design and classic look. Black Swamp Symphonic Field Drums produce the deep, rich sound that is expected by many musical styles and composers. A thinner shell with reinforcement rings produce a deep fundamental tone.
The SA1215MST model drums features the SoundArt Duo Strainer, triple flange hoops, and a 6-ply maple shell with reinforcement rings for a big, throaty sound...not just a tom with snares. BSP Trio strainer is made with precisely CNC machined and laser cut components. Others use die cast strainer parts which can't rival the accuracy of solid machining. Large tension knobs are easier to adjust because of the unique staggered design.
