The hybrid hardware snare is available in 14" x 5" & 6.5" depths and has the look like no other snare drum. This drum is available in any material. The hybrid hardware has an outer aluminium edge with a choice of stainless steel, titanium, brass or copper as the inner ply.

The matching hoops are also available in the same aluminium edge with four choices of centre ply, but also have a unique "quick change" kehole slots for quick head changes.

The snare throw, butt and Vkey are available in stainless steel or titanium, depending on your requirements.

The Van Kleef, hybrid snare has a unique sound that, combined with the resonant qualities of the laser cut shell range from deep, fat tones at low tuning, to subtle, crisp tones at slightly higher tuning. The construction of these drums is another reason the drums sound so good.
