This is a completely handmade Van Kleef 6.5x14 snare drum.  It boasts a titanium shell, and lugs, strainer, hoops, and claws all made of stainless steel.  This drum is truly a work of art.  Alan Van Kleef is a drum-making metal-craftsman from Sheffield, England.  Toward the end of the photos, note the unparalleled attention to detail; even the assembly washers were made from titanium, and laser-etched.  You will also see Alan's proprietary ratcheting drum key, and his Instagram post, when he was finished making Matt's snare.
