Regardless of its origins, this is a beautifully crafted, fabulous-sounding drum. Adding in the historical resonance of its wood takes it to another level altogether.

AD has once again produced an impressive snare drum.

There's no doubting, this is an incredibly expensive cajon - however, it does possess an impressive range of percussive sounds and is beautifully made.

Light in weight and at first sight unremarkable, the Kicker is in fact a calibrated tool that offers an instant EQ fix for your bass drum. It's cheap, effective and highly recommended.

With the aid of the Eccentric Systems Eccentric Drive and Quick Torque cams, this is an impressively fast pedal. Given the likely street price, it also represents good value for money.

This is an extremely good snare drum, well made and a bargain for a Brady collaboration.

This kit has it all - great sound, excellent build quality and an incredible price; even at its full RRP this kit contradicts its comparatively meagre price tag.

You can't go much wrong with a well-constructed 14"x5" maple snare and this will be the more versatile drum for most.

An exceptional, beautifully hand-crafted snare.
Dave Holmes (Rhythm)March 24, 2015, 13:00 GMT
Provides a great working platform for anything from tight backbeats and tantalizing rolls to delicate ghosted notes - simply put, this is a highly desirable snare.
