OVERVIEW

Cracks like lightning yet has the warmth and bottom end to anchor the heaviest grooves.

The G28 Acrylic Snare drum from GMS is to regular snare drums like a formula one racing car is to your average commuter sedan. So it's little surprise that the acrylic shell is decked out with racing stripes. The drum's acrylic shell offers a brighter, louder voice in comparison to wood shell drums. The drum has an excellent crack with a medium-warm resonance.

The drum's bearing edges utilize a 45-degree cut on the inside of the shell and a shallow 45-degree counter cut on the outside. The throw-off and butt system was designed to be simple, trouble-free, and effective. The snare drum features 20 strand heat treated high carbon steel snare wire. Hoops are 2.3mm steel triple flanged. GMS acrylic snare drum ships with an Evans coated G1 top, and 300 gauge snare wire.

    Comments about GMS G28 Acrylic Snare Drum:

    GMS made an amazing drum. I wasn't the most happiest with the G1 it came with. I could only get it to sound the way I wanted to with it if it was tuned high.. So I got a Evans HD Dry and that head loves this drum.. I can get low,maids,highs with its tuning range with that drum head.. I then went ahead and tried the classic combo of the Remo control sound .. Clear With black dot and It gave it a much louder sound. Both of those heads I mentioned are my favorites with it. Drum stays in tune no matter what which is awesome with the way the rim shots sound on it!

    Comments about GMS G28 Acrylic Snare Drum:

    The one I got had a sharp bearing edge that immediately broke the head. These drums were made over 9 years ago. Not very new. You can feel every seem between the white and blue, They tried to cover the shell seem with hardware. I have a feeling that will compromise the drum even further. TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT.
