Beacon Bronze
Joyful Noise Drum Company

The JNDC Beacon bronze shells are hand-selected for their superior vibrance and incredible warmth. Similar to the Studio Line copper, the Beacon bronze is a thinner shell in comparison to the Studio Line bronze shells. These drums are very similar in timbre to the vintage snares from the late 1920’s and early 1960’s instruments, as a result of the thinner shell construction. The slight variations in shell thickness result in more mid-range and low-range frequencies with added warmth. The Beacon bronze is articulate and powerful, but possesses the appropriate set of high end frequencies that empower this drum to shimmer like a beacon.

Once the Beacon bronze is hand-selected, the bearing edges and snare beds are finished by hand in order to refine and optimize the sonic performance. Finished with a ferric patina and heat-sealed in 100% Carnauba wax, the Beacon bronze radiates an organic golden prismatic finish that is truly unique.

The Beacon bronze shell model design and hardware consist of 2.5mm solid brass bright nickel-plated triple flanged hoops, ten solid brass bright nickel-plated Corder tube lugs, bell-flanged bearing edges, vintage-inspired crimped snare beds, 24k gold-plated brass JNDC feather motif drum badge, and the bright nickel-plated proprietary cast bronze JNDC “One Touch Classic” snare drum strainer (throw-off) system.

A certificate of authenticity, serialized lapel badge, JNDC Strainer Tutorial DVD, and a complimentary embroidered soft shell case accompany each instrument. The Beacon bronze is only available in a 6.5x14 size. 5x14 and 4x14 shells are currently thicker configurations, similar to the Studio Line Bronze series.
