I was talking to lane before selling all my other drums about an 8x16 fiberglass shell

15s are rare and cool to have as something different. Ludwig used to make some NOB snares in 15”. Here is my 1920s era 6.5x15 NOB.

I've got a 15x5.5" Beier steel shell on my kit right now. Has nice body and cut and you don't have to tune it down flabby to get the fat sound.

That’s one I’ve been interested in. Too bad they closed up.

I had the chance to play Billy Ward’s 4x15 Walnut Craviotto years ago and that one is special!
