Keller Shells would like to announce the following new products or services being offered.
Bamboo Veneers (new exciting addition)
We will soon offer specialty bamboo veneers. These shells not only offer fresh new stylish looks but also bring you a warm new sound. These shells will be available in production volumes.
VSS™ Maple 5-Ply Snares with a layer of finished Carbon Fiber added to the inside ply available in 4" to 7" depths (1/2 inch increments)
We've added a thin inner ply of finished Carbon Fiber to our VSS™ 5 ply production snare shell to create a new breed of snare with a unique voice and a “cool” look. With the warmth of Maple and the attack of the Carbon Fiber, you get the best of both worlds in a shell that retains the warm tones of Maple but has increased projection, volume, and an unprecedented strength to weight ratio.
15-Ply Snares now from 4" to 7" depths (1/2 inch increments)
The dynamic range of this shell is enhanced by our patented VSS™ shell conditioning technology. The increased range offers more flexibility when looking for quick head response, crisp articulation, and a high-pitched presence. Complimentary lower frequencies are stimulated by the VSS component, allowing a more balanced timbre to be emitted.
Vertical Grain 9-ply Cherry and Walnut with Maple Cores
This new 9-ply shell design is extremely rigid, providing a more consistent tonality over a broader musical spectrum. Ultimately, this allows for a more cohesive timber and balance in projection/volume from small to large sizes.
26" size added to our Vintage Mahogany/Poplar and Maple/Poplar Line
Keeping up with current music trends and vintage demands, we wanted our Vintage Bass Drum line to encompass 18" to 26" sizes, all in 14" depths. An excellent choice for a new kit or reinventing your old one.
