Snare Drum Servicing

We offer two levels of snare drum servicing, starting from £25

Basic "MOT" (£25)
(Can be done while you wait)

The basic snare drum MOT involves a shell clean and tune up, getting rid of rattles and overtones as far as possible.
New heads/wires can be fitted at extra cost - please ask for a quote

 

"MOT" includes:

  • a basic clean of shell and external hardware, whilst still in situ on the drum

  • bearing edge clean

  • a full tune up with existing heads and wires (or the heads and/or wires of your choice - charged separately or supplied by you).

Full Service (£50)

The full snare drum service involves a strip-down clean followed by tune up, getting rid of rattles and overtones as far as possible.
New heads/wires can be fitted at extra cost - please ask for a quote

Full service includes:

  • disassembly of all components and full strip down of individual components such as lugs and inserts

  • all metal work will be polished and where possible corrosion and rust spots removed and treated

  • moving parts will be cleaned and re-lubricated

  • chrome work where possible will be cleaned and polished

  • unless bespoke, all parts covered and fitted

  • drum will be reassembled and re-tuned with existing heads and wires (or the heads and/or wires of your choice - charged separately or supplied by you).

  • a range of basic modifications can also be requested.​

Please note that especially heavy rusting will incur a £25 surcharge due to the extra work and materials involved.

I will give a full quote before starting any work.

I can supply and fit Code, Evans or Remo heads/snare wires if required when servicing your snare drum.

 

Code snare drum heads start from £10.99 for a 14" batter head (DNA coated).
Please ask for a quote for Evans or Remo heads.
