It's funny because I have a Mapex set and my snares are Tama SLPs lol and will eventually get a SLP Dynamic Bronze but it's a bit out of my price range at the moment.

I do have the 14x5.5. Great drum. But I did not even know that they offered a 6.5-Version too. Must have been a really limited edition. None of them were available in my country.

Talking about the SLPs... Those are damn good snares.



The fabulous Super-Aluminium. (Better than the Supra - not only in my opinion)



The ultra-versatile Classic Maple (one of the smoothest, warmest snaredrums you'll ever find)



The amazing Vintage Poplar Maple. You can really feel and hear the blues in this one.

Once again somehow people are able to post pics here that are WAY bigger than the 1200 X 1200 limit of the forums..

And they're simply way to damn big!

Peace, Defender

Eek.... Sorry. I pasted the wrong link. Should have been the "preview" link, but somehow I pasted the "full image" link. Will correct it soon.

Edit: done. :-)

I really like the way these snares look, the hoops and lugs are a super looking design, and they look rock solid!

Jeff played Frankenstein setups in the studio.
Mostly Yamaha recording series drums with a Ludwig Supra snare.

He kind of did the Buddy Rich thing ,endorse one company and play another's because you thought it superior(Fibes).

So for Pearl to introduce a JP snare ,well...

This is my latest purchase, an early 1960s 15 x 12 Slingerland marching snare that I bought for $238 on Reverb. I now use it as my main snare with my drum set, with an Evans UV1 on top, and an Evans 500 on the bottom. I was expecting it to blossom at an obscenely high tuning, and have a bright, penetrating tone, but it actually doesn't tune very high, and its tone is very warm and dark.

For those interested in the two Tama aluminum snares, I made a quick comparison video here.

Since the Tama forum is down for several months now I'll post my newest member of the family here. Some people here know me, some don't. But hey: Nice to be here. :D

I found this snare on Ebay and I simply couldn't resist. The guy selling it never used it. It's been sitting on display in his living room for 14 years. Good as new apart from a little bit of dust. It's a limited 2004 Tama Exotix Bubinga snare drum with Quilted Bubinga as the outer ply and that beautiful abalone inlay all around the shell. The finish is called Quilted Bubinga Burst. Size is 14"x6".

The hardware is refered to as simply Nickel. Not Black Nickel. It differs a little bit from Tamas newer Black Nickel finish which is smooth. This one looks more like it's a little brushed. Better treat it well, it's gonna be hard to find replacement parts. :P











Here's how it goes with the rest of my kit. Kind of fits, but then again it's a snare drum. It's allowed to stand out. :P

No one has mentioned the Premier Signia Maple range - ok it's been out of production for about 15 years, but these things sing like no one's business. Gorgeous drums and very reasonably prices in the used market. Aside from sounding fantastic, the build is superb ( maple with beech reinforcing rings) and the snare mech makes it very easy to change snare heads without mucking up your settings. This is a track I recorded with one - 14x5, puresounds, Ambassador top and Evans hazy bottom.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO2dr9NnrNc


My other favourites: The Yamaha Birch Steve Gadd signature snare - 14x5 - bags and bags of tone, simple and just sounds fantastic. If you can get the original wires all the better, but it sounds wonderful with Puresound equalisers too. My favourite of all time.

Ludwig Acrolite and Supraphonic. No one needs me to tell them how good these are. I have an Acro with imperial lugs ( No idea where they came from) and it's phenominal.

Premier Modern Classic: again old Premier - designed in conjunction with Steve White these drums were straight sided shells, ultra simple, 8 tube lugs and sounded amazing with a fibreskyn on. starting to get expensive now though.
