Default George Way Cordia Walnut

You may have seen the A&F single tension kit I posted a few ago. That didn't work out, so I exchanged it back for a George Way Cordia Walnut kit. It's BEAUTIFUL. The pictures don't do it justice. The shells are thin 4 ply with reinforcement rings and are fairly light (lighter than the Broadkasters I had)

14x22
8x12
16x16
6.5x14 Walnut Snare

That semi gloss looks really nice. Great looking kit. I like the sizes too.

Holy crap, that kit looks fantastic! I really love the George Way stuff, they seem to really capture that vintage vibe well. That finish is amazing, too.

Yeah I'm really impressed. The hoops, lugs, and rods seem to be of higher quality chrome than even on some other high end kits I've seen. Or maybe not higher quality, but just "nicer". The bass drum claws are fully lined with rubber to keep from marking the hoops. Gretsch for example only lines with a felt, but it doesn't keep the edge of the claws from making the hoops a bit.

I have that same 6.5X14 Walnut snare and its fantastic. Of all my snares that one and an old Supra get 95% of my use. The whole kit looks great and i'm sure it sounds just as good.

First - wow, congrats on the new Geo Way kit, they are beautiful and I know they sound great.
I was actually at DCP a couple of days before you bought the A&F kit, they had a steel shell kit there as well. It was the first time I had seen A&F in person, they seemed really unique and cool - but wow are they expensive for what they are. Glad it all worked out for you in the end.

I had a Geo Way snare for a short time last year; 5.5x14 maple with single flange hoops,,,wasn't my cup of tea so I sold it. Just picked up a "Gold Top' 14x7 8 lug maple with regular 2.3mm hoops. I'm in love. My first 14x7 snare, and I'm loving the body and punch of this shell, at all tunings.

This one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRvQ07B7YgU

This snare is making me want a kit now. Please let us know how you make out with your new kit after you've had them at a gig.

We recently shot a comparison video with a George Way Walnut Matte Cordia kit: https://youtu.be/ThtH60OvNr0

I love that steel kit. Heavy though, and expensive. But it sounds fantastic.

I'm actually debating taking the single flange hoops off my acro and trying them on the walnut snare. Though the acro needed some opening up. I don't feel that the walnut snare, while dry, needs it. I'm just curious.
