We created the G Series by questioning and analyzing current design standards. The result a totally new blueprint born through experimentation and analysis. Abandoningcommon misconceptions and myths about drum construction, we startedwith a blank slate and identified sound design principles which enhanceboth function and sonic characteristics. Our design philosophy is that the true benefit of playing a drum withmultiple snares is not "multi-tonality." Rather, we believe that thereal value lies in utilizing snares that respond differently atsuccessive dynamic levels. Think about a car transmission. Each gear functions at a differentspeed range, allowing the car to accelerate smoothly. Similarly, eachone of our snare units will respond optimally at different dynamiclevels, and, by working together, they are able to produce cleararticulations across a wide dynamic spectrum. All production starts with a cross-laminated 100% maple shell, whichis sanded, stained and finished utilizing a multi-coat spray processwhich protects and beautifies the natural wood grain. The inside of eachshell is sealed with a lacquer spray which adds a hard reflectivecoating to the inside wall. Not only does this keep out moisture, itenhances the reflection of high-end transients. This enriches upper endsonorities, perfectly balancing the natural warmth of maple shells. All G Series drum feature: Machining in our CNC Center 10-ply cross laminated 100% maple shell Sleek "Contempo" tube lugs Die-cast rims Multiple snare types/materials Grover/Trick throw-off Nylon tension rod isolators Lifetime warrantyG3 MODELOur G3 is the flagship of the Grover Pro concert snare drum line. Designed for discriminating professionals, this drum incorporates designfeatures that raise the bar, setting a new standard for world-classconcert snare drums! Features include: Three independent snare arrays Four snare types Grover/Trick Custom G3 throw-off Angled snare extensionsAt the heart of our G3 concert snare drum is the center snare unit, which includes both black coated and silver uncoated cable. These dualcables have clarity across a wide midrange of dynamics. Optimal snare response: mf to ffThe left snare unit is an array of 6 carbon steel spiral snares, eachwith approximately 100 small points of contact. The 600 contact pointsare optimally designed for soft playing. Optimal snare response: ppp- to mfThe right snares feature our gold nylon-coated cable. These cables provide crisp clarity at the higher dynamic levels. Optimal snare response: f to fff+When used together, these four materials will respond fully through asuper-wide dynamic spectrum, allowing the player to achieve silkysmooth pianissimo rolls, crisp midrange playing, and forcefularticulations. Our new G3 throw-off is built on the patented Trick 700. Weincorporate our solid aircraft aluminum triple-unit outrigger onto theTrick platform. Master adjustments are made using a knurled centerconsole knob. Two "tension balancers" allow the player to independentlyadjust snares responsible for soft and loud dynamics. The extension angle of the snares critically impacts the overallresponse and sensitivity of the drum. Our design frees the snares toexit the snare head plane at an optimal 20 angle, permitting free andfull snare resonance throughout the dynamic spectrum. It is important to note that the snare units are secured at both endsusing high-strength nylon-coated aircraft cable, not breakable cord. This ensures that the snares will remain maintenance free for the lifeof the drum.
