Are these similar to the 10 ply New Classic snares?

Moosryan,

Im a previous owner of a New Classic kit and snare and I would say no, this is not similar. The hardware, not just the lugs are different. The New Classic throwoff was partially plastic (I didn't like that aspect of it). This Full Range throw all metal (cast?)- simple but very functional.

I would say this snare is closer to the old Renown and USA Custom snares. It has the North American hard maple shell closer to the old Renown line (the new Renown R2 line uses a softer maple) and the lugs are the similar to the USA Custom lugs. The badge is similar to a USA Custom Square Badge. I believe the edges are 45 degrees like the Renowns.

Besides the aesthetics, it's a great sounding snare and it's very versatile. I'm honestly surprised there hasn't been interest in it at this price and if this thing doesn't sell in a week or two I'm just going to keep it.
