From the Joyful Noise website:
The JNDC Studio Line shells are hand-selected for their superior vibrance and sonic balance. Similar to the TKO in vibrance, the Studio Line speaks effortlessly and is extremely responsive and articulate. The Studio Line bronze possesses a warmer tone than the Studio Line brass shell, due to the higher copper content in bronze. As a result, the Studio Line bronze shell has formidable middle and lower registers, translating into an extremely powerful instrument. The tone remains exceptionally warm and vibrant in character and is complemented with a balanced register in all tuning ranges, making it extraordinarily well suited for recording and studio applications.

Once the Studio Line bronze shell is hand-selected, the bearing edges and snare beds are finished by hand in order to refine and optimize the sonic performance. Finished with a pure silver patina and heat-sealed in 100% Carnauba wax, the bronze Studio Line celebrates the legacy of vintage instruments highly prized by recording and performance artists. The Studio Line bronze shell model design and hardware consist of 2.5mm solid brass bright nickel-plated triple flanged hoops, ten solid brass bright nickel-plated Corder tube lugs, bell-flanged bearing edges, vintage-inspired crimped snare beds, 24k gold-plated brass JNDC feather motif drum badge, and the bright nickel-plated proprietary cast bronze JNDC “One Touch Classic” snare drum strainer (throw-off) system.

A certificate of authenticity, serialized lapel badge, JNDC Strainer Tutorial DVD, and a complimentary embroidered soft-shell case accompany each instrument. The JNDC Studio Line bronze shell model is available in 6.5x14, 5x14, and 4x14 sizes.
