The Chad Smith Tricolon Free Floating Snare (CS1465F) is a crowning achievement in true percussive perfection.

This not only allows for multiple tonal combinations when stacked in different order, but also for total resonant freedom from attachment hardware. This drum produces the cut and projection of brass with the round overtones of steel.
The drum is fitted with die-cast Mastercast hoops for long-term durability and FT-65 tube lugs for a steady, precise tune. Chad Smith plays drums for the worldwide super group the Red Hot Chili Peppers. His awesome rock snare drum looks as good as it sounds, and consistently produces one of the best overall rock drum sounds in the world today.
