– "I wanted to do something specifically for drummers, something drummer-friendly. I'm so proud of this piece of work," says Frankie "Kash" Waddy, renowned and storied industry musician whose stardom was launched back in 1968 as a drummer for James Brown. "I wanted a special snare case you could take on the plane, an updated product, like a backpack but with a retractable handle and wheels like luggage. Also, it needed a handle like a carrying case. I wanted it to be very sturdy. Well the people at Ameritage® have really developed something incredible."
The "Kash" Waddy Artist Signature Snare Case by Ameritage® consists of a snare case compartment and a separate attachable stick bag. The snare portion has comfort fitting straps for easy backpack-style transport, as well as wheels and a retractable handle to effortlessly trail through airports. It features a very durable, yet lightweight, substrate reinforced inner constructed shell, the Ameritage® engineered foam suspension system for maximum protection of the instrument, and plush fabric lining to protect the snare's finish, all in a compact design that fits nicely in an overhead airline compartment.
The removable stick bag may be easily attached to the drum set allowing quick access. Durable metal fittings securely attach the bag to the Tom drum. A shoulder strap is included so the bag may be carried separately.
The exterior of the carrying case is covered in breathable and durable UV protected, 1000 denier Cordura® Plus fabric with machine stitched trim, features that are classic hallmarks of the Ameritage® case line. Ameritage® continues to be a company true to its origins as a premium artisan brand – less interested in the low end conventional manufacture of high volume production instrument cases, but devoted to the needs of passionate artists by hand crafting the highest quality protection for their treasured instruments.
The Frankie "Kash" Waddy Snare Case comes finished in tan with black trim and interior, but is available in a broad array of colors through the Ameritage® Custom Shop
