Default Re: 1983 Yamaha brass piccolo or new DW 4x14 brass

If it's one of these, the Yamaha SD-493: ...then I'd stick with that for sure. Seamless heavy-gauge shell, amazing rimshot sounds. Used by lots of "the greats" back in the '80s (Weckl, Colaiuta, etc.)

The DW is likely a rolled/welded shell too, unlike the spun shell on the Yamaha.
