Online history of Brady drums (and this specific drum) from an article on by Bob Campbell; "While Brady Drums began around 1980, they exploded onto the music scene around 1991. The Spin Doctors had released an album, “Pocket Full of Kryptonite”, with an amazing drum intro and beat by drummer, Aaron Comess. Just about every drummer was asking, “what was that snare drum?”. The drum sounded incredible, and certainly Aaron brought out the best in it. The snare drum was later revealed to be a 4.5 X 14” Brady jarrah ply shell snare, a drum which Aaron still has in his arsenal to this day". As told by Chris Brady: “When we made ply drums, they had very little tension in them. We used 0.6 mil veneers, so very thin, and we put them in the mold one-by-one. When you bend them, they’re not under much stress because they’re reasonably pliable. Tension raises the pitch. Our drums are lower in pitch (than other drum manufacturers) because there’s much less tension in them. If you put reinforcing rings in an ordinary ply or steam-bent drum, then you lift the pitch more. You could make a thinner shell, but the reinforcing rings would still raise the pitch. That is the secret to all our drums – less tension, no reinforcing rings, and really, really hard wood - so you get a lower pitch with a hard wood shell which really amplifies the sound.”
