Trick's special AL13 alloy provides astounding resonance and total consistency from shell to shell.
The AL13 is a black-finish snare drum from Trick that was cast from their special resonant alloy. Trick's material comes certified from the mill, and guarantees the same hardness and thickness of every Trick drum shell to exactly 1/8" or 3.175mm. The AL13 snare drum provides tonal purity, resonance, durability and performance. The Trick AL13 is a drum of rare power and presence. Trick's design simply utilizes the natural laws of physics, allowing the snare to resonate to its full potential.
Manufactured from the same AL13 shell as Trick's drum sets, Trick snare drums feature lathe-cut bearing edges, solid machined aluminum tuning lugs, precision snare beds, and electro finishes. This Trick snare drum provides the player with amazing sensitivity, projection and cutting power. With simple head changes, this Trick snare will cover every type of musical situation.
The AL13 snare also features bearing edges that are lathe-cut to an exacting double 45°. This allows for superior attack, sensitivity, and faster tuning.
Launched to critical acclaim and immediate adoption by the world's leading drum makers, Trick's GS007 throw-off is among the most advanced throw-off mechanisms available today.
Close-tolerance machined components suspended in a special synthetic lubricant give the GS007 its effortless and fluid movement. To increase resonance and reduce the amount of material touching the shell, the GS007 contacts via two very thin rails which keeps the remainder of the body elevated.
Trick has employed the same philosophy to their butt end component as well. The GS007 snare throw-off is designed not to slip or fail. They provide the user precise control of snare tension.
The patented GS007 is manufactured from solid machined metal parts consisting of billet aluminum, stainless steel, as well as hardened steel. Trick's cam-operated, helical groove design provides the drummer with an extremely smooth, quiet, durable and road worthy throw-off.
