My Story



Michael Carlito has been a multi-stylistic professional drummer in New York State for almost fifty years. His deep passion for performing is channeled directly into his visionary gift for design, robust structural integrity and uncompromising commitment to elite, elegant craftsmanship. 

TranSnare is built by a player, for players. It is the ultimate snare for the professional drummer and aficionado who appreciates the vital difference between a custom instrument
and a generic mass-produced one.

A TranSnare drum is both a master-crafted piece of musical art and a player’s lifetime investment to achieve the individual sound by which they are identified and acclaimed.


TranSnare Drum is a product research company
using today's innovative technologies and time-honored luthier techniques
 to produce the best sounding snare drums.
