I'm almost cretin that the 2nd is Paiste. They sound more to my liking. The 1st sounds very very washy. I think if the Paiste's where Dark Energy they would have been much more comparable in sound. Thanks for sharing with us.
Thats the thing I've seen 60's acro's go for $275 - $299 in the last month on ebay. And g/o's going for almost $200!? and the next day go for $100.... And just yesterday I picked up a total players b/0 for $50... So now the 64' is definitely being sold.
Yeah the ebay prices for Acro's are crazy right now. I'm really having a hard time deciding weather to keep, sell or trade this thing. Typically I'm not a vintage guy. I like my snare drums 13x6 and maple. This isn't even close to that but it sure does sound good!
Yeah I don't mean to come off as a jerk but it sounds like you where hoping to get a RWB Maple Classic Snare (a $400 snare) for under $200 and when it didn't pan out you want your money back. Granted if its not a Ludwig and is not what was advertised you still deserve a refund. But lets...
So I used this this morning and have to say it caught me off guard. Amazing sounding snare. I'm not a big vintage drum guy. I guess I don't understand why I see people buying these for $250 to $300 on eBay when the blue olive ones go for $80 - $100. What gives?
I just picked this up. The seller said it is a 67' 404. Sound right? It also has a vintage Diecast hoop on the batter side. There is no date on it at all and the badge serial # is 88XXX.
thanks for any help!
