KeeGee™ Snare DrumProduct Categories: KeeGee Series™, Snares & Drums
The Grover Pro KeeGee™ Piccolo Snare Drum was designed at the request of St. Louis Principal Percussionist Will James. While offering a standard 14″ diameter playing surface, its slim 3″ depth provides the ultimate snare sensitivity and clarity.
The “KeeGee” moniker is taken from the orchestral percussion excerpt from “Lt. Kijé Suite” by Prokofiev. As top percussionists know, this difficult passage must be played softly and with clarity. While conceived with soft playing in mind, our KeeGee drum has a cutting “bite” that surprisingly defies its slim size!
- 14″ x 3″ 10-ply cross laminated maple shell
- Grover Contempo™ tube lugs
- Black coated cable / uncoated cable combo snares (any set of snare wires can be retrofitted to expand the sonic profile of the drum)
- Grover Piccolo throw-off
- Triple-flange hoops
- High-gloss finish
This piccolo drum will serve as a valued addition to any snare drum collection and is a MUST for those taking orchestral auditions!
|“In the realm of whisper, Grover’s KeeGee Snare drum is a dream!”
—John Kasica, Distinguished Percussion Chair, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra
|“The Grover KeeGee drum is like nothing else on the market. This drums sounds great soft, but its real strength is its range above the ppp dynamic.”
—Will James, Principal Percussion St. Louis Symphony Orchestra
