  • Highwood Snares

    Hello!

    Been looking round eBay for a while for a maple snare - not too 'bothered' about the brand, I would just really like a good quality wooden shell snare, as I've never had one.

    Anyway, I recently came across a Highwood 14x6.5 Single Ply Steambent Maple Snare w/ solid maple re-rings.

    Has anyone had any experiences with the Highwood snares?

      Do they specify what type of maple that is? Grain looks very different even from quartersawn hard maple.

        North American Maple apparently, with Mahogany veneer inside & out.

          Thought so-looked like Mahogany.

            If you join the "Buy, Sell and Trade drums in the UK (2)" Facebook Group and the Sister Group "BSTDUK(2) Forum", you can ask on the forum about it. The guy who makes all the Highwood stuff is on there so I'm sure he'd answer any questions you had.

            Highwood are thought of very highly by a lot of people. You'd be getting a cracking snare.
