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 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 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 5 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.

Top Quality Features at a Fantastic Price

The WHD Birch 12"x 5" Snare Drum has a range of features that you would normally find on more expensive snare drum. The shell is made from 6-ply birch, which produces a loud, cutting tone that boosts the high frequencies whilst maintaining a good, low-end punch. The 1.5mm triple flanged drum hoops allow the Remo UK batter heads to vibrate more freely, adding further sustain to the open, colourful tone of the drum.

A Higher Pitch with Faster Response

This soprano snare drum is commonly used in general drum kit applications, whether as a main or additional snare drum. It's shallower shell size produces a higher pitch and faster response whilst providing more body and thump than smaller piccolo snare drums, making it perfect for funk, pop and jazz as well as other musical genres.
