The SLP strainer is my favorite on the market along with the one Mapex uses.Many of the slp line are just flat out incredible deals.. much because of the components.. solid brass lugs and Tama's new modern original design strainer.. The value is just incredible IMO.

Hard rock Maple is around 1450 on the Janka hardness scale, Spotted Gum is 2470. Harder than Jarrah (1910 on Janka).
And yes, this drum does not lack bottom end.
Using it live is fun; the FOH usually puts the snare volume fader up and scratches his head. Sound is ready. And I’m talking wide open drum with Ambassador heads. Perfect. Same happened with my Brady’s.
What are you switching out?
I just keep the strainer to my left as I’m a lefty, too. But I’ve also had them on the right.
