PREMIER XC Series Snare Drums

Premier - British Collection

XC Series Snares

Designed in conjunction with Premier’s 90th anniversary, the concept behind the XC Series snare drums was to develop a range that suits every musical scenario. 100% handcrafted in our UK workshop, the XC Series snare drum features a 7mm, 13-ply shell constructed from the finest hand selected premium birch ply. With its construction of vertical running plies, this allows the air-flow to run down the shell’s grain up to 4 times faster than that of a horizontal grain. This projects cleaner tones with a faster decay and optimal attack for any live situation.

Featuring a sharp 45 degree bearing edge and a precision hand cut 1.8mm snare bed, the XC Series is one of the most sensitive snare drum ranges on the market today. This combined with the renowned tonal quality of the birch shell makes the XC Series the perfect snare drum for recording. It has a well balanced overall sound that does not change character from high to low tunings; the definitive snare drum for anyone’s collection.

Available in eight striking outer veneers, every XC Series snare is finished with a hand rubbed satin oil finish that captures a distinctive look and feel. The bearings edges and inside of the shell are finished with satin oil to seal and protect the wood’s fibres whilst allowing the shell to breathe.
