Nothing sounds like a Brady because nothing is built like a Brady.
From a superb, woody rim-shot to the clearest pianissimo rolls, a Brady ply shell snare is both dynamic and articulate. Our ply drums have the characteristic volume and projection of the best steel shells, but with a warmth and depth that no metal shell can capture. An expressive instrument with an open lively sound, our ply shell snare drums respond instantly to even the most subtle stickings.
"The sound it emitted was fast, clean and very cutting, with impeccable response. It was able to articulate with such incredible expression that I could almost imagine myself holding a conversation with it.” - Rhythm Magazine
Chris' abstract approach to traditional manufacturing techniques allows us to produce shells with a wide open tone that no mass-produced drum can match. Our ply shells offer a much broader sonic range, with more sustain, more projection, more natural low-end and incredibly wide tuning parameters. Snare drums are distinct, resonant and satisfying; bass drums pack a punch; and toms simply sing.
“The sheer power, bombastic low end, and solid punch of this bass drum turned heads when I used this kit on stage. In terms of overall volume tone and punch, this is the largest-sounding bass drum I’ve ever put my foot into.” - Modern Drummer Magazine
