This snare carrier design features all the latest innovations in adjustability and comfort. The articulating back support (ABS) helps the spine stay aligned and helps distribute the weight of the drum more evenly. The Contour Hinge consists of two pivot points incorporated into the carrier specifically designed to outline both the upper and lower body of the player. The Polycarbonate Abdomen Plate is practically free floating and adds no torque weight from the drum. It also has an extreme range of playing position options, regardless of the players height or drum size. The snare carrier also features a special patented free floating hinge that keeps the drum shell from experiencing any mechanical or sonic stress.
