Why mesh? Premium mesh heads allow for an accurate rebound, resistance, and overall feel, much like an acoustic kit, but without the loud and bulky shells. Mesh is also more sensitive, meaning a more authentic and dynamic sound can be triggered, especially as the Nitro Mesh features a dual zone trigger for the snare and the snare rim. Not only does the Nitro Mesh provide an uncompromising, natural feel, you also get ultra-quiet response, meaning your practise doesn’t have to be limited to neighbour friendly hours.

You can even record your performance, once again at the touch of a button and play it back to hear how you did.
