I always knew that you could get stave shells made really thick, but now that I've seen a 1.5 inch thick shell with my own eyes, it makes much more of impact. The zebrawood is absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure that drum has some ridiculous high-end overtones; a Marshall Stack probably wouldn't stand a chance against it!

I wonder what the angle of the bearing is. 13 inch drum with 6 inch playable head or real steep cut Looks like a wheel from Barney Rubbles car.

Wow.
I'm guessing there's not a lot of resonance with that particular snare.

THANK YOU...time to start saving!!!

I dont think i've ever seen another 13x9" snare before...and yet it responds like a piccolo. The best of both worlds..And also the destroyer of worlds.

Yeah, I tried a 1" thick wood snare. It had plenty of cut and a powerful crack, but no body.

Yeah, that's generally the point, sharp lightning-like crack and no decay/ sustain at all. None. If you're a speed guy like crazy hands, the sound is incredible.

John Longstreth is one of my favorite drummers,Brutal is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Origin.

would a Solid stave shell w/ 42 strand wires add a little more body to the sound?

that's quite a maddening image of a drumhead being busted by a piece of zebrawood log

You can get real thick-ass ply shells, too. Keller sells up to 50-ply snare drums which is probably around 1 1/2" thick.

That's just ridiculous.......I need to hear that thing. I bet "choked" is a good way to describe the sound of it.

On Antithesis, it sounds more like something other than a drum....kinda like that sound you hear when Harrison Ford punches someone in any of his movies, but super-condensed and at warp speed...you really hear it when longsteth goes into a groove other than a blastbeat...it almost has more of the character of a heavy, dry ride cymbal than a drum! I'd love to hear just the drumtracks of the album...then again there's tons of EQ of course, and thats why i really want to hear the natural tone. Even his live videos are not really enough to justify the sound/character of it because he triggers the whole kit.

I recently re-tuned my 6.5x14" steel snare drum to have more of this kind of sound, you know that razor-sharp, cutting attack with almost no overtone, yet without choking the sound like what moongel does to the sound. 42 strand wires cranked all the way up really makes it happen.

Heads and tuning are going to determine 60 percent of the drum's sound. Still, I bet it produces ear-impaling rim shots!

I'm wondering if it is too thick to even resonate, and I can't believe it would sound any different than a 6 inch , or whatever the inside diameter is. The sound is going to travel right thru the drum to the bottom head and I can't believe it would be loud.
