SETH RAUSCH MODEL / HICKORY
The SR-1 was designed by Seth Rausch, the Nashville-based drummer currently backing Keith Urban. The SR-1 is similar to a 3A, but slightly larger in diameter and shorter in length. Additionally, the quick taper and round bead provide a bit more front weight, which creates a warm sound at high volumes, and helps facilitate the quietest of ghost notes.
