So nice! I WILL own one of your snares one day. Always wonderful craftsmanship.

Does the veneer improve/change the sound of the Titanium or is it more for appearance?

If you clang the raw shell it doesn't have as many high overtones, but resonates just as much. The secret Sooy sauce is the type of veneer I use and the adhesive. The veneer is no thicker than a business card AND has a backing which allows for the use of a hard set adhesive. Details not really of interest to most, but they certainly make the difference. A typical veneer would be 3x as thick, and be put on with some resonance killing contact cement.

Hmmm. I respect the work of the OP and it's always nice to see more of it. However, recently, I've noticed a trend where builders start a thread with a picture of their work, a link to their work, or a comment about how fantastic such-and-such a drum is (yes, some of their own work), and that's it. These are not really threads. Rather, they are just advertising. No offense to the OP intended, but this kind of advertising is not permitted on DFO, at least it wasn't in the past. I guess it doesn't really matter anymore now that DFO has third party advertising. A little more advertising fits right in. At least the kind of advertising in this thread doesn't include malware and allows members to comment and discuss. I greatly prefer the kind of advertising in the OP to the malware kind. Very nice drum indeed. I wish the OP continued success.

Very nice drum indeed. I wish the OP continued success.
So if I bought this drum and posted a picture of it and mentioned who or where I bought it from, that's ok? :)

TDM, I appreciate what I think you are trying to say, but it's a fine line. I would say with my 1523 posts, a very small fraction have been what you call "advertising." I'm proud of my work and like to show it. I don't accompany my "ads" with paragraphs rife with overblown hyperbole or some sales pitch. I don't post prices, I have no links to websites in my signature. I've always answered questions if I see them as honestly as I can. I guess you can take it up with the admins and if they think it should be removed they can.

Perhaps I should have kept my mouth shut. I always enjoy seeing your work. You contribute plenty of advice and knowledge to DFO and to the drumming community as a whole. Personally, I have no problem with this thread, because I appreciate it in the context and breadth of your many contributions. I suppose I was commenting more due to other threads I've seen where the OP's contribute little here other than "hey, look at my stuff". I don't actually mind "hey, look at my stuff" threads as long as these are balanced with other types of contributions.

Side note. Quite a few years back, I mentioned I didn't like the new-modern look of the Dynamix lug. Well, strike that. It's interesting how things change as one learns more. I *really* like the minimum contact footprint of your Dynamix lugs and you've accomplished this in a desirable two-point design. Very classy look and sonically and structurally sound. I'd choose these lugs now, by preference. The RCK throwoff is another bonus; I've always liked the classic looks and simple, functional, side-to-side lever operation. So yeah, all around great looking drum with super thin-shelled design and well thought hardware. Plenty to love here, for sure. :)

Yep! And, I'm plenty okay with this thread, too. See my further reply to Eric (above).

Perfect response. I am weary of "look at my stuff" followed by "look how many famous people I know," "check out all these video reviews," "I am such an innovator," and the like -- but I have never seen you (Eric) say any of that stuff. You simply share your project and let people say what they will without the need for fanfare. I appreciate that. And I think you do excellent work.

Bonus points to companies who also don't resurrect threads from 2011 in an attempt to get attention on something they sell. I think that is worse.

Nice work as always Eric.

Looks great Eric!

Having played your titanium snares, this particular snare above could fool people, like band members. They would look at it and go "a wood snare" but then the sound would confuse them. And that's a good thing in my book.

My favorite are the innovations that actually travel BACK in time!
