Default A snare I get to keep for once...

This one is all mine. It's going to get proper claw wood hoops shortly but I just tossed on some of the cheapy PDP hoops I had laying around. Aircraft grade aluminum, 14 x 6, 1/8" thick...



Not sure what I'm going to do finish wise... that's just bare metal in the photo. Thought about a dark satin blue or something with a matching inlay in the hoops.

Lookin' great, and sounds like if you take that thing to a high enough altitude it won't depressurize. :-P

It's funny.. I've contemplated doing something like what Ludwig did back in the day... They dropped their wood shells out of a biplane at 500 ft and they didn't break... I want to drop one of my Mg shells out at 10,000 feet. muahahaha!

I'll be waiting with a large net and speedy getaway vehicle.

Is that true? That seems like one of the most impractical quality control measures I've ever heard of. Imagine the cost involved. Not only that, but so what if the shell survives a 500 ft. impact. What does that really mean? I'm not trying to be a killjoy, I just find that utterly ridiculous.

Well I'd be happy knowing that my snare could survive a fall from a plane. Then I wouldn't worry about it falling out of the back of the band's van, getting knocked over by a drunk guy at a bar etc..

Read carefully.. ."Bi-plane" as in OLLLLD

This was in the 1920's... it was a publicity stunt done by a sales guy. What ended up happening was they started advertising "Aero Kraft" constructed shells. Pretty funny really. =) http://64.233.169.104/search?q=cache...lnk&cd=1&gl=us

hopefully that link works

Oh and TopCat, at least let it hit the ground first so I can make sure it doesn't fall apart! lol

What a great looking snare. I think the plain metal finish looks kind of cool....

Oh yea.. I kinda dig the raw finish. I'd put at least a satin clear on it before ever selling one like it but since this is my own I think I'm going with a satin blue finish, wood hoops with claws and putting a matching inlay in the hoops.

I'd keep it raw or maybe do a white or silver sparkle lacquer.

Well I've got 2 other shells like it that I can't really sell due to an issue with how the holes were drilled. I redrilled the 2 holes that needed to be fixed and it's perfect but I just don't want to sell an inferior product ya know?

BTW.. I did get the cymbal, thanks!! =)



With metal hoops... Picture doesn't do it justice and I'm sorry about the finger prints. Was drilling holes and what not and never polished it up.

Well... I'll have to figure up the hardware. Don't have any more Trick strainers handy until I order some more. Might sell the raw shells.. shoot me a PM if you want one.
