Vital instruments tailored to make the gig great, Modern Utility’s five snare models each feature a 6-ply/5mm all Maple SST shell. Well-appointed with our CL Bridge Lug and smooth SR700 strainer, each Modern Utility snare is priced to allow the active working player an expanded voice, is flexible enough to add to any set-up, and strong enough to stand up to constant play.”
