I love BB's. That drum will be a life partner for you, I predict.

Mine's got splay and I need to change out the hoops.

Yeah this one of course has the black rubber gaskets to fix the splay, I'm thinking of getting some COB's from DFD to see if that fixes the issue without the need for gaskets, though I don't mind the look that much and normally muffle a snare a little anyways so if they muffle its fine with me.

Enjoy, and please post photos after John has done the engraving!
Oh of course I will. Going to contact him today, have already talked to him in the past and he said he's normally has a two month wait, but I also know he says he's been engraving a lot more lately since not on the road with REO so maybe will be quicker.

beautiful pattern!

I have a 2016 5x14 BB sitting here, maybe I'll give John a call and treat myself.

Just don't ship USPS !

Chris , John is a pleasure to do business with and very professional . He will ship back promptly once the drum is done .
dod you remove all the lugs and strainer and butt yet ? John will want those removed so you are just shipping the shell only .
the floral pattern looks fantastic on 6.5” snares .

Funny, I was just talking with John as well. I just ordered this BB to be scratched up by him. Can't wait to see yours finished Chris! And mine as well.
