Aluminium is drier in tone than other metals generally used in the construction of snare drums. The Natal META 14x8 Aluminium is solid and fat with a clipped sustain, making it perfect for Rock, Metal, and any other application requiring the punch and presence of a deep metal drum.
Considering their mid-range price point, these drums have features that would normally be found on much higher-end drums. All of Natal's META drums feature Natal Originals hardware and Sun lugs, Tru-tune tension rods which are dipped in a special coating which prevents detuning during play, and the innovative Natal three-stage snare strainer which allows the wires to be set in three positions - off, loose, and tight. These features make META snares a trustworthy - and, most importantly, fun to play - addition to any drummer's arsenal.
