Default Re: Solid gold snare drum

If you have the funds, i could have one made (seriously). Gold is intrinsically a soft metal yet very heavy in mass. As such, odds are you'd want a 14k at most, maybe even 10k. So that begs the question what metals do you use to 'mix' the pure gold with and how would that sound? Personally, would not bother making a gold snare unless you REALLY want it for a big press splash/promotion thing.

Also agreed, depends on the size, shape/depth, etc.
