Default Blaemire Supersensitve snare build

I thought since there has been some interest in these Blaemire shells and the build that I did for Greg...aka "Mendozart' (http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...light=Blaemire) I would post my most recent Blaemire build.

Ever since I got my first Ludwig Supersensitive (5X14) this past summer, I have wanted to build a Supersensitive Blaemire snare.
Every step of this build has been a challenge, but most of all it has been pure and simple fun.
I start the pictures with a shot of a 1970 Supersensitive snare bed (yes...the do have beds) that I used as a "template" as I cut the Blaemire shell.
The rest are of the final process. The Imperial lugs, are from a L&L snare from the 30's- 40's. I had them re-chromed for this build.
I will post an MP3 at the end so you can hear it.

Here is the MP3

This is what they call a parallel snare strainer. The bar connects both sides of the double throw off mechanism. When you lower or raise the throw off lever, it actuates both sides together.
