There's a great site, DrumFactoryDirect that offers great drums that will match the BB (former owner) at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!And it's gonna be your first and only brass snare! So what do you get?
The Black Beauty seems to be the benchmark, but I see people saying good things about Yamaha, Pearl and others...
- At/near 6.5" depth
- Budget US$900
(Reasons: poor 2nd hand market in Australia; I have 5" steel, 5.5" birch and 7" maple snares; I'm not made of money).
Hit me with your wisdom!
