Hey Blaze......Better late than never. Yes, I have one of these beauties. I sometimes get itchy and sell things that I regret later... It happens too often (mostly cymbals). I would regret it if I sold my Copperphonic. I do have my eyes on a Ludwig Jazz Fest reissue (or a Canopus " The Maple"-but I am a Ludwig guy), but those 2 snares would probably be the only 2 snares I keep as I thin things out in my old age. Did you ever sell this?Thanks, Sammy. You have one too?
I have both a Hammered BB and a Copperphonic that I use most out of my collection. I used the Copperphonic for a year straight then re-discovered the BB which I've used exclusively the lst 4-5 months.Ha! Hi, Sammy. Yes, better late than never. And, I know what you mean -- I've sold lots (mostly snares) that I still regret selling: For example: three Craviottos (that hickory in the Memphis Drum Shop video used to be mine), a Joyful Noise Anchored Copper, and a Carolina Drumworks canarywood snare. If I could have all those back, I'd never ask for anything ever again! I can't sell the Copperphonic yet. If I had to keep two snares, the Copperphonic might be one, but it's hard to pick. It might be the most versatile snare I've owned, though the hammered BB gives it a run for its money for sure.
Yes, that's the thing, isn't it -- the ones that get played most? The hammered BB doesn't have to be worried about or tuned for half an hour -- it'll always sound good, especially in rock music (sweet tone, and cuts like nothing -- this is where it has the copper beat). The copper is similarly easy to manage, and may not be as present when things get louder, but it has a just-right crispness that's dry and lively at the same time.I have both a Hammered BB and a Copperphonic that I use most out of my collection.
