The blended shell brings the punch and the drying character of the Mahogany with the projection and cut of maple, giving it a well rounded sound which will easily be heard amongst other sound sources in a live or recording situation. The unique size really focuses the drum and allows for a great amount of punch. Extra venting helps dry the resonance of the drum and effects the feel due to air release.
Whether you use it as a punchy side snare with huge presence, or simply as a dry, cutting main snare, the Versatus will do it all, with incredible style and finesse.
