OK guys - message received, & exactly why I put the question on this fine forum. You've given me the answer I needed. Special thread tooling & gauges ordered today!

Andy,

I was reading your responce on Dunnett's thread and a question popped up. Instead of cluttering Ron's thread I decided to go with your most recent Guru thread.

Are there any plans to start making metal shelled drums? With all the time and effort you guys have put into your drums I'd be very curious to see what you could do with a metal snare.

There's lots we could do with metal snare design. but there's enough out there doing it right now, & there's a great choice of drums available. Almost all metal shell snares are fairly cheap to make (with the exception of more exotic materials), & once the tooling is laid down, not a lot of crafting involved. In other words, it's just not us, & frankly, we already have a silly workload with what we've got in the pipeline.

Thank you. Unfortunately, it's the appreciable minority that do care that makes a difference.

I dont see what the big deal would be, a snare strainer that tightens counter clock-wise? ok, then ill just turn it the other way!

i would never let something that seems so trivial influence my buying decision.
and definitely not the snare strainer.
does it sound good? all that matters to me

Andy, I think your reputation serves you well and you should take advantage of that. It's like driving on the left side (the incorrect side ;-) of the road, people may not like it at first, but they get used to it.

Besides, I'm left-handed so it probably makes sense to me.
