As Noble & Cooley’s first product in the professional drum arena, the SS Classic solidified our reputation as the leading manufacturer and original maker of The World’s Best Drums. These snare drums were the first steam-bent, solid shell drums of the modern era!
They have been used on countless recordings since their introduction in the early 1980s and continue to be the instruments of choice by professional players today!
Solid Shell1/4" solid rock maple (or other domestic hardwood) is hand-picked for grain consistency and run through a steam bending process dating back to the Civil War. Our single ply shells vibrate more freely than the multi-ply shells commonly used, giving our SS classic its warmth and legendary bite!
Snare SystemThe snare system includes the snares, the throw-off, and the snare beds, and comes with Noble & Cooley patented cam action snare wires designed to allow tight tensioning without choking the bottom. These vibrate beautifully at medium and loose tensions, and can be tuned up or down as needed. Their brass throw-off is smooth and simple, allowing the snare wires to be engaged or disengaged easily!
Nodal Point Lug MountingNodal Point technology is Noble & Cooley’s very own patent. By placing the lug post at the nodal point of the shell’s natural wavelength, we ensure that the intrinsic tone-creating vibration is unaffected by the mass of the lug. Instead of all drumhead sound, the shell itself adds to the ultimate tone of the drum!
The bearing edge is the point of contact between the shell and the drumhead. The accuracy of this bearing edge determines the drums tone and tunability. Our edges are lathed to create maximum resonance and projection. True to 1/10,000th of an inch, our artfully customized drums have hand cut bearing edges that are checked twice on a machinist's grade granite flat, ensuring consistent pitch!
Beechwood ShellBeechwood offers a low, thick bottom-end which is ideal for lower tunings with power to cut through any mix in a mid range tuning, and still provides plenty of crisp body in higher tunings!
