OK folks, we have the solid 1 ply snare thread making the rounds, so lets celebrate the "other" wood snare. Lets see those wonderful stave and segmant (Block) construction snare drums! Post em' if you got them...

We have several high end stave makers here on DFO, I hope to see many from those builder for sure!

I toss my only example into the mix... A 6X14" of flamed hard maple and black walnut by Punkinater Custom Drums out of Myrtle Beech South Carolina.... The splay is only in my old cell phone pics, none in the actually drum.

My vintage Brady 2nd gen. 14x6,5 Jarrah Block snare:


And I bought this, this week. An A.D.M. (former Brady Employee) 12x7 Jarrah Block snare from the early 90's:


I'm on the verge of buying another A.D.M. in 14x4,5 (that snare used on ''Two Princess'')

Nothing like beautiful wood crafted into a great musical instrument or other useful item

I'm not that familiar with stave drums. What are the sound characteristics that differ from ply drums?
I've never been able to A/B this with two drums of the same size, shell thickness, hardware setup, heads, and tuning, but what I've been told is that stave shells offer a slightly lower fundamental than ply shells of the same thickness because there's no horizontal (bend) stress on the wood.

Here's my Carolina Drumworks birdseye maple Gold Series. 1/4" thick staves with milled-in 1/4" reinforcement rings. Total knockout.
