The 50-ply is such a standout because it's so extraordinary. It has an incredible attack. This is a snare that's handcrafted, one ply at a time. The sound you get back is so intense, you can't help but love it."

DrumMax Custom Drums announced the release of a new 50-ply snare. Hand-crafted from American maple and completely made in the U.S.A., the snare garners reactions of awe and surprise from those who see or hear it.

“The 50-ply snare is a unique instrument. It’s so thick that the wall vibrates less, so that the top and bottom heads vibrate the most. That’s what gives it the dry crack sound,” said DrumMax founder Leonardo Baroncini, speaking from his workshop in Indianapolis, “It’s louder and has a much stronger crack than the 8-10-ply snares you typically see.”

DrumMax launched with a bang in July at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, generating substantial buzz with their custom drums, all made in the United States by local craftsmen and Baroncini himself.

“This was the most talked-about snare at the Summer NAMM show,” Baroncini says, “The 50-ply is such a standout because it’s so extraordinary. It has an incredible attack.”

Starting at $1,250, the 50-ply snare isn’t the least expensive snare on the block. However, as Baroncini says, “This is a snare that is handcrafted by local artisans who add each ply, one at a time. One drum can take a few weeks to create. It costs more, sure, but the sound you get back is so intense, you can’t help but love it.”

The snare is the most dense of all snares that DrumMax offers. Shares are also available in 10-ply, 15-ply, 20-ply, 30-ply, and 40-ply, as well as in stav style, made in exotic woods.

Baroncini said, “The 50-ply snare is an extension of the custom drums we’ve been creating for our clients all year long. It’s just another way for us to give drummers any sound they want.”

DrumMax builds custom drums in exotic woods, including bubinga and zebrawood, and creates specialty snares like the 50-ply snare.
