I guess it isn't nice to post pics and tease without the specs.... so here we go:

I've been making segment drums for around 15 years now. I did make all of these, although they didn't start out to be mine. All of the drums with the larger 'Goetz' badge were made by me including the Keller shells. Long story short, I worked with another guy at his drum shop. Some of these were made for the shop to sell. When he was going out of business and needed cash, I bought the ones I wanted (at a much better price).

The ATA case holds the 5 snares I carried on the road. Left to Right:

6.5 x 14 Ludwig Hammered Bronze with the older die cast hoops.
6.5 x 14 Purpleheart segment snare 3/8" thick w/ 24k gold hardware
6 x 14 Sonor HLD 596 Bronze snare rare bird with Designer hardware
6.5 x 14 Keller 8-ply (my first drum build)
7 x 14 Cocobola segment snare 5/16" thick

The purpleheart was my first segment and intended to be mine. The cocobola was made for the shop, but I liked it....

The middle pic contains the following, again left to right:

8 x 14 Tulipwood segment snare
6.5 x 14 Pearl Free Floater
3.5 13 Keller 10 ply in a rainbow finish (Explanation below)
8 x 14 Ludwig Coliseum 6-ply in Blue Marble finish and aluminum cast hoops
7 x 13 Keller 10 ply with a sunburst fade
6.5 x 14 Slingerland Steel shell

The Tulipwood is my favorite. It has patina'd a bit. It was originally more purple and reddish. I made this one for me.

The piccolo was the shops finish sample shell. There are 11 different colors on there. We numbered the inside so someone could just say I want finish number 'X' and we'd know exactly which one they were talking about. Well, when he was going out of business and pissed at the world, he started to chuck stuff in the garbage. I stopped him and said I'd make a snare out of it. Same with the 7 x 13 Keller, raw shell I saved from the garbage.

Very Very Very envious. What kind of gigs do you play. Like it looks cool and all, but to carry a huge road case with 5 snares, I would only assume big arena dates where the sound guy might get finicky and demand more choices?

When I was a young buck playing with golf gloves and using Regal Tip Quantum 10's, (one stick shy of a billy club) I carried 5-6 snares only because I would destroy a snare head or two every set, thankfully I grew past that stage of my life quickly lol.

I think we've had this discussion before, but all of the drums with the "Goetz" badge are ones that I have made myself... and I do remember you mentioning your name. I have 6 drums that I've made, the rest were sold and are still selling... knock on wood.

The influence of Facebook had me looking for the "like" button but seeing as this is the real internet, I'll just tell you that your collection is superb (better than "Like").

I've just finished assembling my own Segment snare, Mahogony(sp) from a shell I bought on eBay.

Well done!!

Well here it is for you Latz

I took apart a Mapex Saturn snare I've got in a box and used the hardware.

I had some problems, namely the shell itself was thiker one end than the other (badly lathed) but it was so miniscule that you couldn't tell by feel or by eye until I went to put the lugs on, I ended up (because the washers on the Saturn lug screws are fixed in) banging the screws on a vice to bend the washers into a curve instead of flat and this allowed me to connect lug to screw.

When I drilled the four vent holes, the drill bit (and only one I had) was blunt and wouldn't cut so well, add to that the fact I didn't drill a big enough pilot hole either and voila, wonky vent holes.

Thus the snare has been christened "Ol' Wonky"

Learnt a lot of lessons and will carry on but I'm no pro custom drum builder by any means, so they shouldn't feel theatened lol

Cheers

Don't you have nut and bolt supply stores over there? Here we have Brafasco, and a few others with a great supply of allen head stuff in all sizes, configurations, beats banging the crap out of your stuff. And if the screws were that short, wont be long before they pull out of the threads and you will have lugs to repair.

Did latz build that shell for you?

Nope, not one of my builds. I'm guessing it was turned on a koko jig instead of a machining lathe, unless they just didn't get it centered. I asked ozz to see it..

goon is right tho, you should go get some longer screws before it pulls out and strips the threads on the lug. Screws are much cheaper than replacing a lug.

Also, next time either use a unibit (HERE)or a brad bit (HERE)to drill. They won't walk and create another wonky.. lol

Live and learn. I've got a pile of scrap from my learning curve..

Nice drum...

ozz 05-11-2011 10:04 AM

Re: My Dirty Little Collection..
 
Thanks for the advice chaps, all taken on board.

As for replacing the screws, I will do that, although the washers have allowed at least 5 mm of play and that was more than enough for at least four roations of the screew in the lug so I'm confident that the lugs will hold but its better to be safe than sorry.

Thank you for your kind words and also the info on the drill bits, I'm on eBay having a gander right now :o)

The shell was bought from rhythmkingdrums.com
