Some info from Firchie's website:
The Firchie Drum combines a free-floating, seamless aluminum shell and a rotational tensioning system.
The concept is that the entire drum can be rotated on its stand to proportionally increase or decrease the tension of both the top and bottom heads-thus raising or lowering the pitch of the drum.
The sound of the drum can literally be changed from that of a piccolo to that of a 10” deep drum (or anywhere in between) in seconds. This eliminates the need for several snare drums in a studío situation, and makes the drum extremely versatile for use on a live gig.
The drum is equipped with a throw-off at each end of the snares. These strainers are attached to the lower “spoke rim” not to the drumshell. By adjusting the tension of each strainer differently, one can achieve three separate snare sounds by virtue of using either one-or both-of the strainers. Of course, both can be released for a “no snare” sound.
