The new Jim Kilpatrick standard snare drum carrier is a lightweight, collapsible alternative to drum slings and features a raft of new design features including fully adjustable standard Magnesium shoulder supports, new single key adjustment with contour hinge, new 'Starship' bracket with sliding height adjustment all made from incredibly strong and equally durable ultra-light materials. The Kilpatrick May abdomen plate is virtually free floating; bearing no weight from the drum allowing complete freedom of movement. Intelligent weight distribution transfers the weight of the drum to the tubes, away from the abdomen plate improving rigidity and stability. Includes snare carrier adaptor. Andante customers should note the Andante snare drum carrier adaptor is not included and must be purchased separately.
