Stunning tone, top to bottom

Every base covered. For his debut signature series snare, Craig Blundell wanted the perfect combination of versatility and rock-solid tone. With that in mind, he chose a 6-ply walnut and maple hybrid construction - and for good reason. Walnut allows the drum to really 'pop' at higher tunings, which is complemented by the maple's classic warmth. This only becomes more pronounced as you tune the drum lower, for a beefy low-end that still retains the walnut's crisp crack - particularly on rimshots.

Hoop and glory.

Speaking of rimshots...The Blundell Signature features Mapex's ingenious Sonic Saver hoops. Originally created for Mapex's legendary Black Panther snare drums, Sonic Savers feature a unique shaping process which creates a larger surface area on the top of the hoop, bridging the gap between the triple-flanged and die-cast methods. This makes them ideal for raucous rimshots, while also being kinder to your sticks - and your hands!

Craig Blundell: Professional prog-head

Craig began drumming at the age of 3, and it shows. He's now at the forefront of a genre which relies on tip-top technique in every area. He's also often heard drumming on the BBC's adverts and jingles, but it's his session work in the prog world where Blundell has really made a name for himself. From King Crimson' David Cross to Steve Wilson to Genesis' own Steve Hackett, Craig's dazzling skill and powerful feel have placed him at the top of the list when it comes to drumming guns for hire.
