Default My new Yamaha 40th Anniversary Phoenix snare

I have been looking for one of these for more than two years... You guys know the drill; search alert on Ebay and googling it "for sale" now and then... Nothing... Only 100 snares were made in 2007 for Yamaha's 40th anniversary so I was prepared for a long wait but while on vacation in Denmark, surfing a Danish online buy'n sell site one pops up for sale at a killer price. The ad was old so I called the guy sort of expecting it to be gone but he still had it and even knocked off 300$ from his asking price... And the best part apart from the sound... It has serial# 0002. The specs are 13x6,5 brass, handengraved with alu diecast hoops... Beautiful drum!!

Simply the best (and I have a wide array of snares atthe moment)

Here's mine:

I got this back in '07 new. I traded it in for an RC standard.

Stupidiest thing to do. Searched for a new one for years (even got contact with your seller and another one at the same time)

But I got very lucky by bumping into it on fb (and the luck of the option to buy it "back" for an amazing low price (around 740 us)

Its number 16 of 100 and its here to stay (never sell it!!)

Oh. And this is what it sounds like:
