Nice collection! Do you play all of them on a regular basis?

Now, I've got to pick my jaw up from the floor...

Thanks for the welcome Jim, I'm very proud of my collection, all of them are kind of off the beaten track so to speak.

So far all of them have been played at gigs regularly except for the Neil Peart, Aztec and Highwood snare (at rehearsals only so far.)

The Animal Artemis is my favourite, I'm in two bands and one is a rock covers band and that's where the Artemis comes into it's own, although the Warlord and Atomic sound groovy, the Chad Smith is my back up. The other band is less rocky so I use the twin panthers, the 10" is a really good song for Reggae.

I forgot to add this snare too..................

Pearl Piccolo steel 13x3

Very good. I upgraded my collection too, lately. Now, instead of one, I have TWO snare drums. Yeah!

Very nice pictures, thanks for sharing.

Each snare holds it's own story............

The Warlord was sitting in my local drum shop and as it's the 13" and not the 14", they are on a limited Edition of only 200 in the world. I was surprised no one had bought it, so I maxed my credit card on this brief occasion.

The Atomic was bought directly from Rikki Rockett of Poison, he has his own drum company and he's a friend of a friend. I bought it just at the right time before the pound nose-dived against the dollar.

My wife got me the Aztec for my last birthday and it has a fiberskyn head on it, and I know with my heavy handed style that two things would happen if I played it at a gig, Peoples ears would bleed and I'd go through the head. I will try it out at band rehearsal tomorrow or Saturday.

When we met, my wife told me she cant have anymore kids (got two from a previous life) so I do have two grown up step kids, but they live with their biological dad.

Well I had the Ludwig first, then the Pearl Piccolo and then the Pearl steel for ages, then I went and bought the Highwood and it all snowballed over the last year.

Thanks, it's ten lugs and weighs almost as much as the DW Neil Peart

Yeah, Paul is sadly missed, I only met him the once but in that one occasion you could tell he was more blessed with drum talent than most of today's top drummers. We were at a drum clinic and he was writing the actual clinic out in drum notation as it was going on.

It's a treasured snare and one I never want to part with.

Paul did so much for the drumming community. All these free lessons and dedication to transmit his knowledge to his peer. I always think of him when I take the brushes because he had a video lesson of basic sweeping motion for 4/4 bar which helped me a lot to understand the method.

It's a cracking snare, the Tama sounds spendid, I hate gigging with it because of the rarity of it.

I have to say it sounds lovely, really bright and dazzling. Highwood are good drum makers, no doubt about it. I'm lucky that I know Gareth and also his neighbour Carl at Animal Custom Drums (got a snare of each) The Animal is my favourite overall, it sounds so phat and groovy.

Yup! I'm sold! They are all beautiful instruments. Especially that Mapex Black Panther Aztec Snare! I wouldn't play that snare just to keep that head in mint condition!

Congrats!

I have no idea, it's very thick, so I would assume it's a ply snare.

I was given a blank fiberskyn head in the deal so that the head in the picture wouldn't get damaged. Still looks mighty even with theblank standard head on.

Great snare collection!!! I love them all.

But, you need to get a Supra and a Black Beauty!!!

They should be next on your list.

Again, great collection. I am terribly jealous.

The Animal snare was the first of the Artemis snares. I won the snare through a competition on Animal's website to name their new retail series of custom drums, Artemis was the greek god of the hunt and wild beasts.........simple really.

These are amazing snares. My favorite has to be the atomic bomb one. Also the DM snare is very nice. Highwood are based right here in yorkshire which i am quite proud of. If i ever have some spare drum money i'll definetly think about getting a few drums off them. What just blows me away about them is that i can get a set of custom drums, with MY shell sizes, MY hardware configuration and MY finish, for less than what you'd pay for a higher midrange kit.

Also bonzolead is right, you need to show us the rest of your kit!
