Cambridge Drum Company Beech Snare Drum

Two of the brass section from Jools Holland’s band were raving to me about Gilson’s new Cambridge drum set.  I was intrigued, so I contacted Bob their Sales Director and he popped over with some snares for me to try.  The quality of construction is second to none and they sound amazing.  Bob lent me this 4.5” beech shell snare. I took it into my show, Five Guys Named Moe and it sounded great.  Here’s a quick video recorded with a Shure 57 on top and two overheads. Check out their website www.cambridgedrums.co.uk
