Oh man, beautiful kit! Love that red finish, must song amazing as well! Could you take a few close ups of your snares? Would love to see some detail shots of the Soprano. How do those Pocket Hats sound as well? The hammering on them looks wicked.

Thanks Solaris. I'm finding it hard with the lighting in the room to get a photo that shows the best representation of the finish but these next ones are pretty close.
The Le Soprano has a very unique shell construction and is very thin for a stave shell hence the re-rings. The hoops are hand cast from B20 alloy, the same alloy cymbals are made from.
It is my favourite sounding snare in my small collection but i sometimes wonder about its durability.
I have included some closer shots of it but if you want to know more about them their website is www.lesoprano.it/drumset/prima_en.html.

Gorgeous kit, beautiful color.

Please forgive me, I know the thread is mostly about your wonderful Brady set, but what really impresses me is the Le Soprano snare ! These drums are really something different, and different from most non-Italian stave drums. Why? Well, because they are much thinner than most stave drums, because inside they are not perfectly round, because the stave are not just glued together. I believe the origin of this construction method, which has been adopted by other Italian manufacturer, were the Tamburo Original sets: but it is true that Le Soprano added its own style with the "free floating" system and with its unique brass hardware.

Anyway, lucky you!

P.S.: some times ago there was a thread regarding a Le Soprano set, and I also wrote a few lines on these incredible drums: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ght=Le+Soprano

You have some top-notch gear there, congratulations. Brady drums are awesome and they genuinely sound unique. Both your snare drums are beautiful instruments. I have to ask, do you own a Brady snare? (A 12 x 7 sheoak or wandoo block would compliment the pair you have.) Love your cymbals too. You have very good taste! Thanks for sharing.

Wow that's a nice kit. Is that the flux capacitor mounted on the back of the seat?

Beautiful kit you have there. I'm loving that pretty red finish and the brass parts on that snare. That things looks like it was my by a master furniture maker who dabbled in drums. I'll bet it sounds like a million bucks too.

Thank you for your kind words. I own a 5.5x14 Jarrah block snare. A 12x7 Wandoo is on my wish list but so is every snare in your very impressive collection, I'm extremely jealous.

It's a Butt Kicker bass transducer I use sometimes for monitoring. it works surprisingly well but I hate carrying around the amp required to drive it (and the weird looks i get trying to explain what it is.)

I was not familiar with Tamburo but after looking them up i was surprised at how similar in design they are.
The 'free floating' system isn't really that free floating compared to say the Sleishman system and in fact the shell is made up of three pieces, but for whatever reason the design just works and the drum sounds great.

You are very welcome. And thank you, sir, for your kind words about my DW collection. The collection is a real indulgence for me that I have enjoyed building up over the years. I have some other wonderful snare drums too:- a smallish group of rare Craviottos and some beautiful, handcrafted Fidock drums that are made here, in Australia. If you appreciate top-end stuff (I know you do), check them out at:

http://www.fidockdrums.com/

My "working" snare is a Brady jarrah ply 14 x 5.5 that has given me over 15 years good and reliable service. It's an amazing snare drum. Some time soon I'll be looking to replace my kit, more than likely with a Brady. The decision is whether to go for jarrah or spotted gum...Thanks again and I hope you enjoy many hours of fun behind your beautiful kit.

You're welcome to come visit the workshop and check out both the Jarrah & Spotted Gum kits. Just drop me an email to tee it up!
