The two Protean snares are available in 14"x5 1/4" and 12"x5" sizes and both feature hybrid bearing edges, with rounded on top and 45 degree on bottom. The hoops are also hybrid, with Gavin favouring an S hoop on top and triple flanged on bottom.

With so much attention to detail in crafting these drums it is little surprise that thought has also gone into keeping them safe and sound. The Hardcase designed case is able to house the snares, wires, keys and dampening rings.
