Chrome Body Piece

Built from a solid 3/4 chunk of chrome to create the single body piece that houses the interchangeable insert and magnet, the Snarewieght #4 adds mass to the head of the drum in order to help smooth out the lower-mid ringing frequencies more evenly whilst retaining the tone of the shell. Connect it to the drum's rim by the magnet, or it can be used together with the Pro Lock to add that extra security as well as secure it to drum rims that aren't magnetic.

Interchangeable Leather Insert

The Snareweight #4 features an interchangeable insert that is constructed using a piece of authentic leather attached to a magnet in order to connect it to the Snareweight's body. The leather helps to dampen the sound of the drum, compressing its sound by 2-3 db which helps to achieve optimum recording levels without the need of outboard gear when mixing. It also provides the ability to rid unwanted frequencies by choosing the insert that matches the drum head.

Neodymium Magnet

The Snareweight #4 includes a strong magnet that allows it to attach itself to the drum as well as keep the insert in place. With its design first created in 2011, specific improvements have been made to the magnet and its enclosure, such as recessed screws that now anchor the magnet and raise the brass lip to prevent the magnet from chipping, as well as an absorber above the magnet to prevent any jittering.
