Inlay Snares

Inlay Snares

From the UKs Largest Boutique Drum Company

The Liberty Drums Inlay Series snare drums are truly unique. Available in box or thin line inlay variations such as swirl or straight. They are unique instruments that sound as good as they look.

We make our own shells ply by ply in a cross-laminated formation which produces super strong and resonant shells. All other wood types are available on a custom basis. Our inlay snare drums are made of Finnish Birch which sonically speaking delivers solid, punchy, focused, tight cutting, pre EQ’d rich, raw, powerful, full bodied sound.

Add precision cut 45 degree bearing edges, Liberty’s own beetle style die cast lugs & Iconic Badge, Quality throw and a classy hard satin wax. All this amounts to a true Liberty Drum Made in the UK.


Each of our inlay snares are formed using 2 sections of the chosen outer wood type and the inlay to form the outer veneer.
