I was going by the price on Drumgearonline.com. They sell 50 ply shells in that size, with edges and beds, for $550. Not sure how that compares to other dealers though. I did round up a bit on the shipping. A big factor there is if you got everything from the same place or had to have multiple orders shipped out. So I think $40 would be pretty reasonable.

It fits the kit perfectly, I'd love to just go 'Animal' on it for a while...


Thanks for liking my drum. I am actually considering putting an HD mini screen on the side of it. lol

It's coming It's coming. I did a song this weekend and I didn't bother even just throwing down some snare stuff. I am doing it this weekend. I am a slacker when it comes to that.

I was going to do offset lugs but I thought about it for a little while and decided not to. Almost wish I had.

That's an awesome looking drum. Danny Carey's high toms are 1" thick too, according to an interview with him and they look sick as well. You did a killer job finishing that drum. Looks sweet, and I for one really don't care if you spent $500 or $5000, it's uniquely your drum.

i think hes avoiding telling us how much it really costed.

very unique drum, but it reminds me of a friend of mine who custom ordered an SJC snare, and got it 30 ply im pretty sure, and it costed him about $1400. to be honest, i think it sounds ok at best. my snare was only $300 (a porkpie piglite) and i think it sounds just as good if not better. all i could think about when he told me he bought it was, "why didnt you buy a whole new kit?". he has pearl exports, and the snare is just too loud in comparison.. i couldnt imagine how loud a 50ply must be.

Yeah, I'd probably have purchased a new Gretsch for that price personally. But I spent a good chunk of change on 2 new Brady snares this year, but my catalina Maples sound really nice, so everything meshes.

I'm not a fan of thick shell snares, but the drum looks great.

I really like the color of the natural maple, and your custom kit is crazy!
I love Nat maple kit's anyway, but the finish color on yours is really nice.

Did you get any special kind of clear? Or is it just the aging process that's turning it that honey gold-ish color?

I really like those lugs too.
Reminds me of old Premier lugs...which I've always liked too.

Nice job!

They're not. They're the Art Nouveau lug and they're about 7 bucks a lug. I built a snare drum and used those lugs. As a matter of fact, the "experts" at SJC use these lugs too, so you be the judge . . .

I personally prefer thinner shells on deeper snares but it looks real nice! Job well done!

I haven't actually weighed it, but it's heavier than my two bass drum together. I actually have some demos of my band and they can be heard here... www.myspace.com/siro or www.myspace.com/prioritynumberone

drumgearonline would probably build that snare for you new for $1,000 (or less). At $2,200, it exceeds the cost of parts (at retail) and would be worth maybe $400 resale, tops.

The reason, alas, is that there is no company name attached to the construction.

OTOH, get a 1-1/2" Unix stave. There will be the same insane cut, but with more body due to much less glue. And the price will be a few hundred, not a couple grand.

Good God man, that takes the cake. I'm pretty sure a rimshot on that monster would open up a wormhole to another dimension....I have a 1" thick maple snare and so far nothing I've played beats it. I'd love to play that snare. I have to say though the phrase "point of diminishing returns" comes to mind, but then again...I haven't heard it yet. I do love maple....I hope it's everything you hoped it would be.

I didn't say it cost me $2200 to make. It just says $2200.
