M5 Shell: After years of building upon the foundation that is the “SJC Sound” (that perfect balance of attack with smooth sustain + controlled overtones) and working closely with our artists to create a formula that further develops these preferred characteristics, we have designed and released our proprietary M5 Maple Shells!
Standard on all custom orders, 5 alternating vertical and horizontal plies made up of North American maple come together to formulate our proprietary M5 shell that offers enhanced resonance, increased tonal range, and ease of tuning in any playing situation.
Specific inner-ply thickness increases as you move from the rack toms through the floor toms to the kick drum. The strategic change in ply thickness adjusts the tonal characteristics of the shells and results in the use of less plies and adhesive, creating complete balance of both tone and feel. We designed the M5 Snare shells to have the thickest overall ply configuration, giving you the power of versatility, increased attack, and ultimately bringing your tonal range full circle. SJC’s R&D team worked tirelessly to test this proprietary formula to equip you with a shell that is going to hold up to your every need in any situation.
