Default [SNARE : COLLECTOR) Worldmax Bronze Hawg (rare model)

Hi everybody,

I'd like to introduce my new snare (Worldmax Bronze Hawg 14*5). I bought it in a little shop in Italy and this is a collector model (I am lucky). This model is not any more produced by Worldmax and it's almost impossible to find it in the market. So this is a rare piece.

The Serial Number is : WorldMax BZ 5014 SFX

About Black Hawg (mine is a Bronze Hawg). You can read a review here :

My link

The Hawg series are awesome snares and they sound as well as a Ludwig Black Beauty. In germany, they won some Snare test.

Technical détails :

- Bronze Shell 1.2mm
- Simple Flanged vintage like Hoops
- S9 Die Cast Strainer
- Hand Made in Germany Snare Wire

This snare is terrific and very versatile too. You can play almost every style expect Metal I would say.

Wow beautiful snare, never seen a bronze worldmax, how does it compare to the other worldmax snares?

And maybe a soundclip.......:)

Quite similar construction to my import Ludwig, perhaps they use same shell supplier?

That would appear to be a very sensibly designed snare throw-off. How do you like it?

Every chance. I believe Worldmax, Pork Pie and Luddy Black Magic snares all source the same brass shell. I'll wager it's a similar process for bronze.

OP, I like the vintage look hoops....very nice!!

I have some snare, (Aboudikro Shell, Brass and this Bronze one). I'd say that this Worldmax is a little more warmy and less dry than the others. It's one of my best snare.
When you play it on the edges the harmonics are very controled and when you hit it on center, the sound is focused and the low frequencies are so great.

Sorry for my poor English skill.

The Strainer is not so sensible... In fact, it depends of the tension you apply on the wire.
This is a die cast one and it appears solid.

Great snare! I always wanted a Bronze one. Great find!

I have the Black Brass "Vintage Classic". I went for the standard strainer though.
These are really nice snares!



I always wanted one of these with the Satin Chrome hardware.
I already know it sounds great, but it looks great too.

I'm watching some Worldmax snares on Ebay at the moment, but they are so cheap. Granted they are not vintage but would you reccomend a Worldmax to another collector?

For playing they are great sounding/performing drums.
For Collecting, they're just a drum and aren't going to hold any "value".

I think those days are "gone" as far as drums that would go up in value.

With so much out there, and every company under the sun offering basically the same thing (Co. "X" badge on the same Black Nickel over Brass shell), nothing is going to end up being collectible.

Maybe Joyful Noise, and the older BB's, or specially engraved etc...things that are "collectible" now (and cost an arm and a leg).

But, as far as is this a good purchase for a drum that's going to sound/perform really well, then yes on recommending it.
