The Bonobo Series

The Bonobo Series

AKA "The Tourer"

The Bonobo series feature selection of beautifully crafted segmented drums.  

The Bonobo Series are very much authentic in terms of style and sound, with the natural woody texture and their tradition and interesting construction. Each drum is individually crafted using the most stable and tonally pleasing drum building method - Segmented. The advantages of the Bonobo Series include their bombproof construction and their beautiful articulate sound, that can be tonally and aesthetically fine tuned with your choice of either; Padauk, Mahogany or Black Walnut. 

The individually crafted segmented construction of the Bonobo Series makes for a quality built and tonally pleasing snare drum that is extremely versatile. Segmented drums by nature, tend to have a "wetter sound' than their stave counter parts, with a slightly more subtle attack, medium sustain and longer decay - resulting in a very much "rounded", tonally pleasing and articulate sound. Although overtones are present, they are controlled and focused; adding to the overall sound of the drum without hindering it.

The Black Walnut variant produces a sound that is aggressive, warm and woody, performing excellently at all tuning ranges.

The Mahogany variant produces a sound that is warm and fat with boosted mids, performing excellently at all tuning ranges. For that classic Mahogany sound and high end features, this snare drum makes for a wonderful package.

The Padauk variant produces a sound that is projecting, bright and yet still maintains a "full bodied" sound, performing excellently at all tuning ranges; excelling in the higher tuning range.
