    Here’s a beautiful playing workhorse of mine for sale. The classic 20’s Ludwig 2-piece heavy brass shell snare. 8 Lugs. Top hoop is NOB and appears to be original. The throw-off works great and holds. Tunes easily and plays great! Things to note: T-rods, clips and bottom hoop are not original...

    Up for trade is a rare tube-lugged Oriolo NOB seamless spun brass snare. 14x6.5. Great condition but note the extra holes drilled for the Trick throw. I'll include the original throw as well. Great snare, but it's too close to my Ludwig Black Beauty so this one is on the market. Looking for...

    DW Nickel Over Brass or Gretsch Renown Snare?

    I'm currently debating between getting either the DW Design Nickel over Brass 14×5.5 snare, or the Gretsch Renown Maple 14×5 snare. Versatility is the goal, but sound wise I'm going for Stanton Moore's sound. Does anybody have any experience with either of these snares? Any suggestions help, thanks!

    Ludwig’s Recent LE Metal Snare Drums - Thouhts?

    What does everybody think about the last few limited edition brass snares from Ludwig? One is red, one is white, and one is blue. I actually love the red, but it’s only offered in 8-Lug, so that kills it for me. In general though, I love the idea of the colored metal Ludwig snares. I think they...

    Duluth Bell Brass 14x6 3/4 Slingerland and Ludwig, Tama combo

    I finally got her in! It took a long time and a lot of research to get it done. I love vintage Slingerland and Ludwig drums so I chose to honor the classics and also have a bell brass in the process. I took specs from a Tama Bell Brass and also specs from some older Broadways and Radiokings...

    Very old snare, could someone help ID?

    I got this snare off an antique dealer I know, he frequents estate sales and often calls me to help value drums and cymbals. I'm at a loss on this old snare. It has no markings, no writing either inside or out. It's in fantastic shape for what what am assuming is it's very old age. Its...

    Selling another lightly used A&F Raw Brass Snare 5x14" - it has not been gigged, only played in my home studio. These drums sound GREAT. I just have had some unexpected expenses come up and need to let it go. Please keep in mind these snares are all hand made, so you should expect...

    Tell me why I should like brass.

    I want to like brass, I want to like it so badly. To date I've owned a Yamaha Nuevo, Pork Pie Patina, Kenny Arnoff Trackmaster, Pearl Sensitone, and Taye Metalworks snares. I haven't really enjoyed a single one of them. Some of them were decent, but just weren't nearly as good as I would expect...

    Yamaha SD-493 3.5"x14" Brass Piccolo Snare Drum

    Great snare drum here. One of the lugs has some duct tape to prevent the threaded insert from falling out of the lug. Otherwise, the drum works as expected. Comes with original aluminum die cast hoops and the strainer works very well. Asking $275 plus shipping from Canada for DFO members
