Default Re: Looking for great maple snare for studio. Rock, pop, country.

I believe it's 7 ply. I have a Evans Genera dry head on batter and a Evans hazy 300 reso. There's a reason why they call it "Phat" Bob. Enjoy the hunt but you most definitely need to check this bad boy out.

Thanks man I just checked out some videos, sounds great.

Just checked it out too. That is sweet.
