I pretty much only play 15" snare drums and there are no inherent sound problems at all. They are anything but one trick ponies. Seriously, they are just like a breadthier 14 that is eq'ed with a little more low-mid. My 5x15 Legacy and Supralite can be tuned any which way you would tune a 14 and they sound great. One has sharp edges, one has rounded edges. Both pull off high or low tunings equally well.

I agree the common concensus on a 15" snare is that it a specialty drum, but having played them extensively, I honestly don't know why. If you go back to the 20's and 30's, 4x15 was a very common and standard size. They just got forgotten about somewhere along the way. More and more companies are offering them now though, so they are making a very slow resurgence. I think they will be more in the mainstream in the next few years as the newer offerings find their way onto the stands of more players and they begin to discover what great and wonderful instruments they truly are.

Does that mean a 6.5x15 Phantom would be possible?

As soon as we develop the tooling for it. Which will happen right after we finish 20, which is currently in the works.
So far, we got 12, 13, 14, 16 and very soon - 20 ...

AWESOME!!! I have been waiting for a 6.515 Supra or Acro for a very long time. A 6.515 Phantom would be even better! BTW- What's the reason for the bead near the bottom bearing edge, as opposed to the traditional center of the shell position? What sonic differences do you notice placing the bead there?

That's Oriphonic shell layout. The bead is actually an element of the bottom bearing edge. I doubt there's any significant sound difference. Frankly, the main reason behind it is to ease the production.

strands are easy to come by, yep it may look small in the pic but its a 5x16. The floor tom is an 18" (if you can see it cause, yeah, I'm one of those oddballs that sets up all twisted) That 16" spun aluminum snare looks nice. I am gonna check and see if i can get DW to make one since they are getting into making steel kits now.

I'd say 75% of all the high end ones? DW and Pearl do for sure

Man, that thing sings at the high tuning. It's like thunder and lightning.

Johnny Craviotto once created a 5.5x22(gasp!) snare for NAMM one year, now that was interesting!
