"The very pinnacle of snare drum design and craftsmanship is represented in our In-Tense snare series. Hundreds of hours of R&D plus A-B comparisons have gone into their development. Our constructions are designed to bring out the very best in each unique shell character, and feature the fundamental of the chosen wood species to its full potential." — Guru Drums

The In-Tense Series drums are available in a wide range of timber species, and in both thin shell solid segmented or thin shell solid stave forms, the very pinnacle of low mass snare drum design and craftsmanship is represented in our In-Tense snare series. Hundreds of hours of R&D plus A-B comparisons have gone into their development. Our constructions are designed to bring out the very best in each unique shell character, and feature the fundamental of the chosen wood species to its full potential.

Depending on wood species, these instruments are incredibly lightweight thanks to our industry leading thin solid shells, and our UK crafted aluminium ultra low mass shell hardware. In all cases, these unvented drums are incredibly sensitive and expressive, opening up to full tone at very low dynamic, yet able to take high dynamic playing and extremes of tuning without choking.
