I wish I still had mine. I’m not a thin snare type of guy but it was one of my favorite snare drums. I’d like to get another one. No cons I can think of. Tuning range was impressive. I couldn’t make it sound bad.

Are they bronze or copper? I remember seeing Smitty playing on a video once & the sound of that drum was just incredible. I had mentioned it in another thread & it got me thinking about it again.

I have one. Copper shell, gold plated hardware, super hoops....it's a sweet sounding and looking drum. I'd sell it, though, for the right price......
