Regular price £849.00

Material and Construction

AKA "The Masterly"

The Barbary series feature an array of beautifully crafted stave and segmented drums.  

The Barbary Series have all the high end features that really make a snare drum special; quality tone woods and shell construction, die cast hoops, quality snare strainer and complete with a beautiful high gloss finish.

The Stave variant of the Barbary series makes for a quality built, highly projecting and tonally pleasing snare drum. Stave drums by nature, have a thunderous projection and attack! Our Barbary series are very much 'to the point", with a reasonably short, sharp attack and a short decay. Although overtones are present, they are controlled and focused, allowing more scope for fine-tuning the overall sound of the drum. The addition of die cast hoops and a high gloss finish add to the overall attack and brightness of the sound! 

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.

Eddie has just sorted me out with a brand new snare and it is absolutely stunning. As usual the craftsmanship is superb, the drum is aesthetically beautiful and the sound is unlike anything else, owing to the custom nature of the build. Eddie is a top professional who seriously knows his stuff - if you're after a custom build Snare or indeed a whole kit - you really cannot go wrong with Eddie and Primas Custom Drums!

The quality of the drum i purchased from Primas, is unmatched. I reached out after I saw a snare built on a private forum. I was quickly responded to, and my inquiry was handled by the builder! I purchased the snare and was kept apprised during all of the shipping and parcel process. Primas drums took care of me and my order professionally and expeditiously. I look forward to working with them in the future.
