I finally got around to snapping a picture of all of my snare drums today and I figured it would be fun to see what else everyone has. Let's keep this to pictures of all your drums together, rather than a bunch of individual snare photos. I think it would be cool to have a bunch of pictures of entire collections, with all the drums together. Also, if you want, include the specs on each drum. Here's mine:

All Snare Drums.jpg

From left to right:

  • 5" x 14" DW Craviotto Solid Maple: 1998
  • 6" x 14" DW Collectors Mahogany/Spruce in Ruby Glass: 2017
  • 5" x 14" Tama KingBeat: early 80s
  • 6.5" x 14" Ludwig Hammered Bronze: late 70s
  • 5.5" x 14" Ludwig Pioneer in Sky Blue Pearl: 1965
  • 6.5" x 14" Ludwig School Festival in Gold Sparkle: 1963

I'm in the process if selling some. Which one of those is your favorite?
I honestly don't have a favorite. They all fill a different niche for me. The ones I play the least and might end up selling are the sky blue pioneer, the Tama King Beat, and the Craviotto. These are great drums, but to my ear, I just prefer the others.

I don't usually stack them like this, but it was the quickest way to get them all in the shot. A mix of Ludwig, Tama, Yamaha, Dunnett, Craviotto, George Way, N&C, Ayotte, Premier, Leedy and Rogers.
