Re: Derek Roddy here!
I just bought a DW Collector's Series kit with a 6-ply maple snare drum. The snare sounds great - in fact, Danny Seraphine used my snare in a clinic recently.
How is the DW bronze snare? Does it have a lot of ring to it?
By the way, I'm am truly amazed at the speed of your single stroke roll at the beginning of the DW video with the bronze snare.
