Just gauging interest here. I have a Tama Star Reserve Copper snare drum that I really love. I think copper is my favorite material for snare drums, and this one is a total knockout.

Unfortunately, I play a lot of very loud stages and rooms, and this drum seems to disappear just a bit at higher volumes. I think it's an ideal low-to-mid volume setting drum when projection isn't as critical.

So, I wanted to see if anyone would be interested in a swap for a similarly sized/valued drum that might have a little more mid-range oomph. Preferred candidates would be:

14x6.5" Ludwig Raw Copperphonic
14x7" Q Gentleman's Copper
14x6.5" Oriollo Copper

But I'm really looking for a non-hammered, beaded copper shell.

Quick demo here:

Drum is in great condition. Fingerprints, but otherwise mostly new. I'll add photos later today.
