View Full Version : Steambent Cherry 13x5.5 Snare (finished project)
06-06-2007, 09:13 PM
Finished this one up today... I need to buff it again and bring back the high gloss that my greasy hands screwed up but I couldn't wait to get the hardware on and play it. =) Sounds pretty killer for a 13" snare. Cherry definitely has a little different tone than the maple I'm used to playing.
Just added a recording that this drums new owner recorded for me. Not my playing but it sounds darn good! =)

Looks really beautiful. As far as I`ve heard has cherry a darker tone?
And it is heavy??
Mhhh, however it sounds...hope you like it! (I guess yes) =)

Holy cow, dude! You're the Larry Flynt of drum porn. Every time I turn around you've got something new and exotic. I can't keep up.
Beautiful drum. I would love a steam-bent shell someday. That's how Western drums were traditionally made before the advent of ply technology. How does the sound differ?

You need to open up a Picasa website, from Google, and post your drums in one spot. Maybe you and Unix could highlight them all.
It's free and easy my friend.

Why bother with picasa when I have my own website? I'm in the process of getting the website up and running. lol This snare is actually going to be for sale.

Very nice. Sound clips too?

DC: Sound clips Saturday... we played with it at the local GC and while I liked it before I LOVE it now. In fact one of the drummers there is having me make him one but in 14" size. He fiddled with the tuning a bit and this thing just sounds beautiful. Then again he's probably twice the drummer I am so that helped.

Beautiful sounding drum... now to find someone that can play it better lol

well you have changed my mind, i think im going to buy one of your drums. once you make a maple drum let me hear it. but im not making any promises here, but they sound very good

lol thanks.. very flattering =) This shell was done by Ian at Wittpercussion and I must say he does an amazing job. I've got another shell coming from him shortly that's a bit of a test project to see if it's the wood we think some other builder refers to by another name. I won't mention names so as not to start a fight. lol
One of the local guys is wanting me to build one out of rosewood... that should be beautiful... just gotta make sure it can be steam bent.

Lovely drum, lovely sound.. nothing more to say...

New soundclip: http://www.mckenziedrums.com/SoundFiles/cherrysnare.mp3 not my playing... the new owner of this drum sent it to me. Put Cherry on your list of woods to have a snare made from for sure!
