The Classic Model 2N series came about as the result of a few ideas, but mostly as a personal challenge to my skill as a drum designer : to build a drum using the beaded / flanged architecture that I preferred more than my Ludwig 400 Supraphonic. Mission accomplished!
I currently offer the Model 2N (named after my beloved Ford 2N tractor!) in polished Stainless Steel, Brass in Antique or Chrome finish and Modelling Aluminum in a natural polished. I also offer the Gergo Borlai Desgi2nate model which is polished and lacquered Bronze.The Stainless and Brass models come with a non-flanged beaded shell while the Modelling Aluminum and Gergo Borlai Desig2nate models feature my patented hybrid edge design with a straight edge on the snare side and a flanged edge on the batter side. The range of 2N models offers a modern, updated and much more robust version of the snare drum made famous by drummers like John Bonham. With a choice of higher or lower fundamental pitch provided by the different shell materials and designs one can truly dial in a particular sound, but get even more sonic diversity than available with vintage or even modern offerings (which have become impoor imitations of themselves). But do not take my word for it. Check out Carter McLean's YouTube channel and search for him playing some of the model 2N's. You won't be disappointed in the sound or in Carter's performances!
