You should look into buying a predrilled shell and hardware and put on together!I've been looking for a deal on 6x5x14 worldmax with the single flange hoops. this is damn close to the A&F brass snare to my ears.

Sure,sure. LolI owned three different models of WM and each was a gem. I'd put the 5x14 up against a Supra any way of the week. In fact I also owned a Supra Brass Edition and the WM was more than it's equal. I preferred the WM. The only reason why I don't own any now is I "discovered" that my preferred snare drum sound is from wood (with a hammered bronze and hammered aluminum coming in a close second.) And, no, WM is not paying me to say this
