The Markley Exotic Series snare drums begin with our famous Signature Series snare drums, kicking them up a notch with the addition of gorgeous, premium quality exotic wood veneers.

Beautiful, highly figured exotic woods from all over the world are used as the outer ply on either our Signature Maple or Signature Birch Series snare drums to create the Exotic Series snare drums. Exotic Series shells are available in 8, 10 or 20-ply thicknesses. Thinner means more natural wood tone, while thicker shells give you skull-splitting volume. Combined with our world-class hi-gloss finishes, the Markley Exotic Series offers you more unique options and total control when creating your personalized Markley Custom Drums.
