The aged copper snare has the look and feel of a 1920's vintage snare drum. This drum is made from grade 101 copper with 99.99% purity, which is the purest form available, and the best choice for that copper VK snare sound.

The Van Kleef Copper has a unique sound that, combined with the resonant qualities of the pure copper shell range from full, rich tones at low tuning, to bright, articulate tones at slightly higher tuning. The construction of these drums is another reason the drums sound so good.

This Van Kleef drum has found it's way into the hands of many drummers including Steve White, Thomas Lang, Matt Chamberlain, to name only a few.
