The VK Cast B20 bronze snare is the bronze snare drum every drummer should have in their collection. The finished machined thickness is available in 10mm with no internal fixings visible (around 25kg), or 4mm with visible bolts inside the drum (around 10kg). Cast from the classic bell bronze alloy, B20 (20% tin, 80% copper) which is the best alloy for that classic bell bronze snare sound. The B20 snare is available in three different hoops choices, Straight stainless steel, 12mm thick laser cut or matching B20 cast bronze hoops with stainless steel claws.

The Van Kleef cast bronze shell has a unique sound that range from dry, crisp tones at low tuning, to subtle, articulate tones at a slightly higher tuning. The construction of these drums is another reason the drums sound so good.
