However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The SJC Drums Custom 14x6.5 Snare Drum, Plaid Chrome HW has been manufactured with a Maple shell to give the snare a warm tone and enhanced lower frequencies. The distribution of middle and high frequencies are evenly dispensed, leading to an overall powerful and commanding tone.


Although often used for toms, this snare utilises 2.3mm triple-flanged steel hoops that encourage open and long sustain, further helping the drum to project and resonate. In addition to this, the standard SJC snare wires provide a great mix of shell tone and snare wire snap, further assisting the definition of the snares dynamic sound. The double ended tube lugs used are durable and offer great stability and adjustability, allowing the player to play to his or her exact preference. A Trick GS007 throw off featured on the snare uses smooth lever action that makes practicality and easy operation the number one priority.

SJC Custom

The distinctive SJC badge located on the shell proudly mark the snare as a product of high quality manufacturing and craftsmanship, producing a great feel and outstanding tone. The Snares unique appearance and plaid design can be attributed to the innovative nature of SJC's extensive custom manufacture. SJC take immense pride in creating and articulating each players individual style, making sure that each player has the ability to create their own unique musical footprint.

About SJC Drums

With humble beginnings in Mike and Scott Ciprari's (SJC) Grandmother's basement, SJC has since developed into one of the world's leading drum manufacturers and suppliers. In the beginning the brothers were determined to pioneer the sound of a generation tirelessly seeking to improve themselves and their drum kits until they had reached a state of perfection. As the brother's skills progressed and they got better at building, they figured it a good idea to get some of their friends to play their kits and start to spread the word. Bands such as A Wilhelm Scream and Strike Anywhere were some of the few endorsements from the brothers. SJC's turning point came when the musical sensation Panic! At the Disco played the MTV music awards in 2006. This pivotal moment enabled the brand to branch out and endorse a variety of bigger and more diverse bands like Hawthorne Heights, Aiden and Cobra Starship. Expanding their already impressive artist roster, SJC began to reach unprecedented heights and managed to move out of their grandmother's basement and into a warehouse, enabling SJC to introduce a small number of new dedicated staff .

Embracing the game of innovation, SJC have consistently created drums that produce high quality tone and a distinct character, often to the exact specification of high profile artists. In the last two years SJC has signed drummers Branden Steineckert (Rancid), Cyrus Bolooki (New Found Glory), Zach Lind (Jimmy Eat World) and Tre Cool (Green Day). With all these world renowned artists previously being endorsed by huge international companies, it speaks volumes of SJC for their desire to switch to a custom company.

With a virtually endless list of custom options, SJC prioritizes the drummer's specific requirements whilst never compromising their classic and unique sound. With an ever expanding list of big names upon their roster, SJC has been a consistent choice for many renowned drummers the world over, emphasizing their commitment to quality and sound.


"I've played on literally every brand of US drums out there, and I've finally found my home. I've been looking from drums like these my whole life. True American hot rod custom kits. From the look and sound to the service and attention, it's good to now be part of the SJC family." Tré Cool - Green Day

"I have no clue how I just barely started playing these drums, they sound incredible! Not sure what rock i was living under. I can't express how proud I am to now be part of SJC and get to play these amazing drums every night." Dave Joyal

"Me being real and honest: I am so proud to play SJC Drums. They have treated me so well since I started playing them 5 years ago. Thank you!" Rian Dawson- All Time Low
