  • Overview

    Just two of these plain maple models were made to order by Shimano San in late 2018. A customer who ordered a piccolo snare (linked below) from him also wanted a deeper model. The "plain" look of is primarily down to budget constraints, although Shimano San does say that he liked the soft feel and tone of the drums.

    The frequency response is designed to be "Donshari" (ドンシャリ), which basically emphasis the bottom and top frequencies. Yes I had to look that up.*

  • Original Text (原文)

    こちらも下のピッコロと同じお客様のスネア。ドンシャリ系で今風なサウンドとパワーを要望。そしてソフトと言うか柔らかい表情が欲しいそうです。キャリアのあるドラマーさんの耳のクオリティー、チューニングのわびさびはさすがです。硬質プライウッドのプレーンメイプルで構成したシェルです。こちらも同時保険として2台作成しました。ピッコロと同じそれぞれ異なる特徴を精査して気に入った方を購入して頂くつもりでした。予算の都合もありますが作成上難しいソフトな打感と柔らかな表情は出せてると勝手に解釈してます。そして柔らかいトーンニュアンスの方を選択されました。

    * It's a slang word from "Don" (a low, booming sound) and "Shari" (a high sound). If you're interested, the others are "Kamaboko" (かまぼこ) - emphasising the mid-frequencies (Kamaboko is a type of dried fish that is pointed at both ends and fat in the middle) and "Flat" (フラット) which is...well, flat.  Yes I had to look "Kamaboko" up too. Even I can translate "Flat" though. 😉
