101 Drums – 5.5×14 Woodfiber Snare

101 Drums is a Swedish company that specializes in making drum shells and snare drums out of a specially treated wood-fiber material. The shells are designed to be impervious to extreme weather changes and moisture. They’re lightweight, yet can boast comparable sonic properties to a typical 6- or 10-ply wood drum. Snares are currently available in 4.5x14, 5.5x14, 6x14, 6.5x14, 7x14, and 8x14 sizes, but the shells can be custom ordered with 4" to 54" diameters. The raw shells are cured in an oven, which makes them very durable while also eliminating tension within the fiber. The resulting sound is intended to be deep and round.
