Super XTS Pipe Band Snare Drum

Prices starting at £490.

The Super XTS pipe band snare drum is the lightest high tension snare drum in the world at only 4.9kg.

This is due to the unique construction and tensioning system, that is found in all Flint drums, which results in a truly suspended drum shell. Further weight reduction comes from the use of high-tech materials such as aircraft grade aluminium, and surgical grade titanium.

Because it is truly suspended, the shell gives total resonance for increased volume.

This amazing drum has only one snare mechanism under the top skin with individual adjusting mechanisms at each end of the snare. These are to adjust snare height and tension.

  • The World's lightest high tension snare drum
  • Dynamic shell design for high tension
  • Simple internal snare mechanism
  • Single end tensioning
  • High gloss lacquer finish birch shell providing true wood resonance
  • Also suitable for younger players
  • Compatible with our own Flint harness, Premier T-bar, and Jim Kilpatrick harnesses.


“The factory settings on the drum are excellent. The pitch compliments the pitch of modern Great Highland Bagpipes very well. Myself and other members in the drumcorps were shocked to learn there was only a top snare. You would never know from listening to the drum.”
Loy Donaldson - Crow Creek Pipes and Drums

“I took both drums to The British Legion and Gareth played one and I played the other. I cannot begin to tell you what a difference it made; I could march in a straight line without wobbling all over the place and could swing the drum easily to my side when dismissing. I am so grateful that I found out about you and your wonderful lightweight drums - worth every penny!”
Brenda Lee - South Cheshire Pipe Band
“My pipe band has enjoyed carrying Flint drums for three years with no problems whatsoever! Their light weight and great sound make our drum corps a joy to march in!”
Dave Parent, Drum Sergeant, St Andrews Pipe Band of Vermont U.S.A.
