Each drum makes a bold statement with heavy yellow brass tube lugs and a 0.7mm raw brass shell.

Adorned with 2.3mm yellow brass or black nickel hoops on steel hoops, the Antares evokes images of battle-worn Greek armor while maintaining subtle elegance.

The multi-step Trick Drums filter allows for precise voltage adjustments, making the Antares suitable for both conventional kit playing and orchestral work. The shell itself is noticeably undersized at the top and bottom to create a gable effect with noticeable resonance.

Jan Schlichte (Berliner Philharmoniker) on his Schagerl snare drum:
“I was immediately thrilled with the sound of the toms, the bass drum and the snare drum. The curved construction of the snare has great resonance and enormous depth in the sound. The tonal potential was immediately evident. The "Berliner Philharmoniker 2014" edition was created in collaboration with drummer Markus Lechner. It is particularly characterized by: extremely precise pianissimo response, flexible character, so that it can be wonderfully tuned in the orchestra to a wide variety of requisite tones, precise separation of individual touches and still very pleasant to play. From optics to processing and sound, a very successful and very successful instrument "

Statement by Jan Schlichte (Berlin Philharmonic) on his Schagerl Snare Drum:
“I was immediately fascinated by the sounds of the tom, bass drum and snare drum when I visited the Schagerl music shop in Austria. The snare curve gives both great resonance and a deep tone. I immediately recognized the musical potential of the drum. Drummer Markus Lechner and I developed the edition of the “Berlin Philharmoniker 2014” together. This drum is distinguished by its precise pianissimo responsiveness, flexibility (so that it can be beautifully tuned to the various musical tones of the orchestra) and the exact definition of the individual beats. It is also enjoyable to play. From design to craftsmanship to sound, this drum is a successful and well-rounded instrument ”.
