Frequently when there's a Fibes chrome fiberglass snare drum for sale, it's mentioned that Buddy Rich liked this snare so much, he often used it instead of the contracted endorsement.
That’s the first drum I thought of. I haven’t played one, but, I love the look, and the sweet CRACK DG gets out of it. I wonder what he’s playing now?I find the Yamaha Garabaldi to be quite nice.
I've got the non branded version ,the Yamaha SD-4103
Only difference is badge and blue finish.
