NEW BLACKHEART FINISH – NEW SNARE WIRES – LATEST ARTIST NEWS
Blackheart is our latest addition to the array of ply drum finishes. This highly unusual patterned timber is available in a “limited edition”. Since no two pieces of veneer are the same, each drum/drum-kit will be a true one-of-a-kind. Due to the great variation of the grain structure of Blackheart, we cannot duplicate drums to the same finish. Once a particular grain is used for a handful of snare drums or a drum kit, it will never be available again.
All Brady snare drums now come with our newly designed Snare Wires, made out of high quality tempered German wire. They are available in sizes from 8” to 16” and the amount of wires varies with each size for the right amount of “buzz”. The head-plate has individual wire channels for an even contact and the ability to accommodate straps or strings for mounting.
Big hugs and celebratory kisses go out to Jamiroquai's Derrick McKenzie, on the birth of his son, Luca Cassel, who came into this world on October 31 weighing 8lb, 9oz. Wife Anthea, and baby are both doing well. Congratulations!!!!!
Brady would also like to congratulate the following Brady clients whose work has been recognised by nominations at the 31st Annual Music Awards, being held on Sunday, 16 November 2003 and broadcast live on the US TV channel ABC.
