Everyone else has offered plenty of praise, I just wanted to ask those questions. I didn't even know that many different kinds of amazing snares existed!
Thanks mate. I did do a thread somewhere else, but this is the first one here.

Snare total is 73 or 74, can't quite remember now and I have eight acoustic kits and an electronic hybrid kit too. I posted a couple of pictures in the vintage thread that's going of the Slingerland kit and one of my Haymans.

Anyway, some photos -

I am loving that bass drum on the Acrolite! It looks sssoooo good with that coated head on the reso side, and i bet it has a great punch to it!

BTW: Your snares are amazing!

For those of you that didn't see this elsewhere - http://www.ak-drums.de/snaredrums/gold-model/T08.html

It's on it's way to me and I cannot wait...

Check out Adrian Kirchler's work. He is truly a master craftsman.

Hey Dave,
That really is a phenomenal drum, do enjoy. There was another drum I was going to mention to you as you seem to be into the exotics, Joyful Noise. This was my favorite at the Chicago show.

Thanks mate. When I get it I'll post some more photos.

You know, I did make some enquiries about JN's drums last year, but the waiting time put me off. I may have to rethink that one; that drum is stunning, isn't it? Love it. Thanks for pointing it out.

My God,

I have never, ever seen anything like this.

Absolutely incredible. I cannot even find the words to describe it. It is beyond any drum porn I have ever seen.

Do you enjoy the thrill of the hunt? You must have so much fun tracking this stuff down.

Do you have any recordings of the drums. I would love to hear some samples.

Anyway, this is quite simply, the most amazing collection of drums I have ever seen. I wish you the best.

You could have the best, most impressive collection of snare drums on the planet. I mean that seriously.

You are like Zambizzi, me and Steady Freddy on Steriods!

If you don't have a room in your house just for your snare collection, I may get upset. Seriously though - a room - just for the snares. Kick the wife/kids out if need be. Absolutely stunning collection.

Wow. Like seriously, that's all I can say.

I believe you must take a picture of all of the drums in the room or vault you keep them in. or try to find a camera lense that can take a panoramic picture of them all lined up.

This is THE best collection of drum porn I have seen outside of a trade show. I feel like one of those characters in the old Topps crazy auto cartoons, knuckles dragging on the ground, eyes popped out a foot on the optic nerves, tongue unrolled onto the ground a yard.

You really have an eye for the exotic, refined, unusual, freaky, flamboyant and fascinating. The collection really showcases the diversity of materials and techniques for making drums - there really aren't even many ply drums. Have you counted the drums according to material type and construction, i.e., so many ply drums, so many staves, so many steambent, so many solid shell, so many copper, so many brass, so many steel, so many carbon fiber, so many acrylic, so many composites, etc. etc.?

Guys, thank you for all the nice comments, I really do appreciate them.

LayinDown, I fear you may get upset. :o) As improbable as it sounds, all of my drums except one kit and a few snares (which are out on loan) are in my room here with me. I have the Diamond series on display snare stands in my living room, but other than that, they're all here. Very anticlimactic I know, and more importantly, a bit disappointing as it would be great to display all of them, but there's only so much space and I have to concede at present as it's not my house. When it is mine though, different matter completely...

I haven't counted the drums on that basis, but it might be fun to do if I get a moment. As silly as it sounds, sometimes the only time I can be sure of accounting for everything is by checking the spreadsheet I have with everything listed on it.

Having said that, there's definately only one carbon fibre, one oak, one bamboo, one maple/acrylic hybrid, one 50,000 year old ancient Kauri and two 600 year old maple.

Big thanks mate.

To answer part of what you've said, yes, I do have some samples which were done a few years ago, but I haven't got much of the more recent/more expensive stuff. No real reason there other than the guy I did the sampling with now lives a long way from me and I hardly ever see him. Shame really.

These are the only two bubinga snare drums Johnny Craviotto has made to my knowledge.

I'm not happy with the majority of photos I took today due to the low light outside, so I'll take some better ones when I can. These'll have to do for now though.

The top one was made for JC's business partner in 1999 and features 14x6.5 shell with brass hardware and Nickel strainer. It's an unfinished shell and is more of a prototype than anything else. It has an old Ludwig-type feel to it when played.

The bottom drum is again a 14x6.5 and was made for the 2008 Winter NAMM show. It has 24k plated hardware with engraving and a Trick strainer. This one feels more like a contemporary drum when played.

Whoa! This is a Native Wood Of New Zealand very ilegal to log now days. No wonder there is only five. Do you know the back story of it ? as where he found the wood,were you first owner? etc. The picture of the tree is believed to be Tane Mahuta god of the forest.(it is one of the biggest Kauri's in the country and a bit of a tourist stop off).It was logged Heavily when the country was first settled but know is a protected native species.Wonderful collection You've got everything anyone would ever want or need.

Wow! What a collection. You must not be married. LOL. When I tell my wife that most drummers have more than one kit and a number of different snares and cymbals she retorts "Why?" . I can use your post to substantiate my buys and that I am actually frugal relatively speaking. Thanks man. Very impressive!!!!!

The story with the Blanched Roots is that I basically saw it up on Ebay for 249 and only one other person bid on it and he subsequently told me he 'let' me win it. Wasn't anything more than that; right time, right place, right price. I don't know why, Sonor stuff has never really interested me even though there's loads of it about over here. It's great stuff, just doesn't float my boat as it were.

Anyway, let the nonsense continue!

WFL 1958 Super Classic - nice vintage drum, but a player more than anything else.
Ludwig Pioneer - pre serial with a red baseball bat muffler. This has the only Remo Emperor snare side head I've ever seen.
Slingerland Artists - these are all solid shells as well, the BDP being the first I ever got.
The Oyster Pink Pearl one came with the kit I posted in the vintage thread.





hey Dave! nice to see u in this forum too! Your snare collection is the best, man!! :D I love them all, bro! very nice!

The Kauri which Ronn Dunnett used for these drums and I believe Pete Standbridge used for the segmented drums he built (don't know how many) came from the logs found in a peat bog about 20 years ago.

At the moment, probably the black Dunnett 13x7, although I enjoy playing the 1966 400 alot too. Wood shells, probably the 5.5" Timeless Timbre or maybe the bubingas as they both feel good to play.

Wow!! I`m just sitting in front of these pics and don`t really know what to say! I even don`t know why I havn`t seen this thread, yet.
Anyway, this is a brilliant collection of some excellent snare drums...all together they must be worth a car, furthermore the personal value must be huge of course.

This natural-finished Craviotto with brass hardware parts reminds me of Jeff Ballard`s snare drum a lot.
How`s the sound of the Sonor Artist when tuned high?
