Swedish engineering at its best!

Lea Larsson has been in the swedish rock and metal scene since 1998 and has since played with various different artists and bands. Today she is the drummer in Metalite and also does some freelancing with a wide range of artists.

-My first encounter with a 101 snare drum was at a gig with Metalite at Malmöfestivalen 2019 and I absolutely loved it. It has a warm and very dynamic sound and the feel is very responsive. The snare mechanism is smooth as silk and the drum even smells good. But the best part is how dynamic it is and it responds to the smallest touch. Swedish engineering at its best”.

A snare drum with a Charisma shell is a lot like a traditional wood drum, yet almost more like an acrylic. A contradiction? We think not. The shell has a width of 5 millimetres all over – this makes it ultra durable, with a punch and smack reminiscent of warmer maple drums and an almost naturally EQ’d projection. A baseball bat edge on the batter side, snare side and snare beds gives a focused and precise sound – for a crisp and responsive feel, making any other snare options, well, options.

Since we are working with a recomposed wood-fibre material rather than wood we have been able to manufacture a drum in different ways to traditional drums. We roll several ultra-thin layers together  to bond them together ‘as one’. Due to this special preocess, the construction is much sturdier and has less tension in the shell. The seams are almost invisible and impossible to feel by touch. The grain of the material is also finer & denser than wood, making the surface super smooth which also benefits the sound of our drum shells.
