Why?

Flint suspended shell systems are for those that like a little extra versatility and variety, without drilling holes in those lovely shells, adding weight and reducing resonance.

Changing your shell is made as easy as changing a regular head.   

Flint Percussion's truly innovative proprietary system sold on its own, for use with any 14 x 5.5 inch shell.  This system takes inspiration from the pipe band and drum corps world and has a 12 rod tuning 'cage' as opposed to the traditional bolted-on 8, 10 (or rarely 12) lugs, eliminating any choking to the shell through excess contact and weight. 

Easy to tune, the system provides an even tension at various tunings and gives you the ability to crank with confidence, should you so wish.  This unique system  will complement any material from niche metals to exotic woods, acrylics and hybrids.  

 

Other depths, sizes and custom colours/finishes available upon request, just email us at info@55dc.co.uk for details, prices and possibilities!
