The JNDC Studio Line shells are hand-selected for their superior vibrance and sonic balance. Similar to the TKO in vibrance, the Studio Line speaks effortlessly and is extremely responsive and articulate. The tone of the brass Studio Line is exceptionally warm in character and complemented by a balanced register in all tuning ranges, making it extraordinarily well suited for recording and studio applications.
Once the Studio Line brass shell is hand-selected, the bearing edges and snare beds are finished by hand in order to refine and optimize the sonic performance. Finished with a pure silver patina and heat-sealed in 100% Carnauba wax, the brass Studio Line celebrates the legacy of vintage instruments highly prized by recording and performance artists.
The Studio Line brass shell model design and hardware consist of 2.5mm solid brass bright nickel-plated triple flanged hoops, ten solid brass bright nickel-plated Corder tube lugs, bell-flanged bearing edges, vintage-inspired crimped snare beds, 24k gold-plated brass JNDC feather motif drum badge, and the proprietary bright nickel-plated cast bronze JNDC “One Touch Classic” snare drum strainer (throw-off) system.
