I have heard of N&C referring to their chrome as "upgraded" before. Not really sure why, because chrome is chrome?
Still, that's one beautiful drum. GLWS.

yes, I believe it may have cost me about $50-80 more (or so?) for chrome than having brass hardware.

They hand manufacture the brass lugs and such. They don’t order them. So, you pay for the brass stuff outright. If you want anything done beyond that (such as chroming the brass lugs they just manufactured), it is extra labor and such. Therefore an extra expense.

"IMO, you’ve already got the best solid walnut snare out there. N&C sets the bar."

I actually think you're right, but wanted a different hardware - Craviotto may suite me better.

I have had both Craviotto and NC maple drums. I sold my Craviotto and have 2 NC solid shells. But, snares are a personal thing. Each to their own I say...✌
All that aside, whoever buys this drum will not be disappointed.

You know, that’s good to hear, re n&c over craviotto

so can anyone with n&c experience message me and tell me how to use a Mylar strap with puresound equalizer wires, instead of n&c funky throw off? If I can use a strap I may just keep the snare

That would be the logical move. Speak directly to them. They are an incredible source for the drums ... and for thinking through an individual issue.

P 413-357-6321 ... ask for Jay or Nick. They answer the phone calls and will discuss pretty much anything you require for their drums. Unreal service.

I just want to clarify that my comment above was just in jest. That is a wonderful drum, as are Craviottos. If I'm not mistaken, Drumguy, did you list it in the Austin CL some time ago? I think I remember seeing it then. The ONLY thing that kept me from buying it was the gloss finish. I'm more of a matte finish guy.

You really can't go wrong with this snare. 6 months or a year from now - if you don't like it - you certainly can sell it for what Drumguy is selling it for now.

My two cents and worth half that! Good luck with the sale.
