Hey all, thank you for letting me join this group. My name is Dave Newton, I'm a Brit born US resident of 26 years (Burbank CA), I'm a songwriter / musician & also a producer / studio owner. Drums aren't my main instrument but I do have a couple of older drum kits & several snare drums (which always come in handy when recording different bands / artists etc). My first question to the group is about this snare drum that I recently picked up, it's a 14" x 7.5" snare built by "Kyre". I can find much info other than their website & several YouTube videos but not much else other than that Kyre appears to be an Indonesian company. Does anybody here have any more info ? (or even own / use Kyre drums) ? Ta in advance :) dave

Welcome to DFO. I know little to nothing about your snare drum other than it looks really nice. How does it sound to you?

I like it as I generally prefer "deeper" sounding snares in my smaller / live sounding drum recording room, & the only other similar snare I have is a 1950's WFL (bottom of pic here) :)

Welcome....
the hardware on the drum you pictured seems pretty generic but the shell is anything but (in appearance).
