Overview

Trouble purchasing The Boxer? Get it from our home page.

Boxer is a punchy alt rocker with an unpretentious direct sound that gets the job done.  A versatile kit with alt-rock, pop and punk written all over it.  A solid kick, toneful toms, and three swappable snares cover plenty of ground, each snare giving the kit a completely different feel. The kit works equally well for laid back grooves or frantic flurries.
