A classic in every sense, Bluebird’s 14” x 6” chrome over brass shell forms a foundation to the resonant character of this drum, with a stylish double bead to focus the sound. The art-deco inspired Palladium hardware is elegance defined, but is also designed to optimise the connection between the shell and the heads, creating a snare sound that is inherently more musical than metallic.
The exacting build quality of Bluebird delivers superb sensitivity across the entire surface of the batter head, meaning sticking will be precise and crisp, rimshots will be deep and defined, side-sticking will be tight and cutting.
This level of sensitivity is highlighted when played to extremes - delicate brushwork is rich and expressive, whilst playing hard reveals the confidence of this drum. Clear, defined, articulate rolls cut through at every level. This drum responds easily to every demand you make - no need to labour your playing as Bluebird cuts through without you ever breaking a sweat.
