May I be very rude and ask what you do for a living? Or are you the king of Australia? What a marvelous collection of snares you have there. What is the snare you play the most?

Wow I love the your collection! Especially the Neil Peart snares and the Lake Superior Birch Snare. Beautiful collection my friend.

And now I know what it would look like if Ronald McDonald had a custom snare made for him. ;)

Any pics of these set up with any of your drum kits (which I'm sure is also a very extensive collection based on the sheer amount of Deedubs' you have)??

My jaw hit the floor when I started scrolling down and saw how many snares you have and then it went through the floor when I noticed what drums they were.

Amazing collection man. I dig it.

That's some collection you have! Heirloom comes to mind. I have a few questions:

1) If you could just keep one, which would it be and why?
2) Which one sounds the best to you?

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the feedback. The collection is a real indulgence for me and I hope you enjoyed looking the photos. In answer to some of your questions...

frank0072
What is the snare you play the most?


Hi. Thank you for your feedback. The drum I play the most from that collection is a toss up between the Craviotto solid oak and the Craviotto Timeless Birch.

Pass.of.E.r.a.
Any pics of these set up with any of your drum kits?


Hello. No, I'm sorry, I don't have any kit photos. I have 2 DW kits: one Short Stack kit in Black Satin with black hardware (20x16, 10x5, 12x6, 14x7) and a F.A.S.T. sized kit in Black Velvet with black hardware (22x18, 8x7, 10x8, 12x9, 14x11). I switch kits according to the setting and context. Thank you for asking.

Skulmoski
1) If you could just keep one, which would it be and why?
2) Which one sounds the best to you?


Tough questions. When you have a range of snares to choose from you tend to assign specific drums to specific roles. But in trying to answer you question...I really like the solid oak. It's bright, cutting, sensitive at a range of tensions. Has a beautiful overtone on the rimshot, and a big sound from the stage. The Timeless Birch is another favourite. It's warmer than the oak, a nice focused sound, great dynamic range; delicate and articulate ghost notes. I think this would probably be the choice if I could only choose one, but again, these drums suit different situations. I also love the Peart commemorative edge model. Weighs a ton, has a huge voice, loud. For rock music I rate it highly, probably up there with my Brady 14x5 jarrah ply. Thanks for your interest and questions.

Wow! I gotta go clean up some drool from my desk, because that is an awesome collection! I like the birdseye maple / walnut Neil Peart one and the 30th anniversary most. Absolutely beautiful pieces of work. I am curious how they did the inlays in the Snares & Arrows snares... seems to me like some really advanced woodworking.

G'day. No, not me on eBay. The Ti is a lovely sounding drum, though, and quite rare so it's worth tracking one down if you can. I have owned mine for a couple of years now.

There are a few too many variations of the Snakes and Arrows snare drum, in my opinion. Sure, they're beautifully made, the quality is spectacular and they sound and look great, but at the end of the day it's 4 versions of the same drum: a 6.5 x 14 VLT maple.

Thank you for your feedback.

I'm interestred in the Lake Superior Birch. I am from Ashland, WI originally (on the shore of Lake Sup) and there is a company there, Timeless Timber, who harvests sunken lumber from the depths of Lake Superior. Do you know anything about the wood from the drum?

Timeless Timber more refers to the type of wood - sunken logs from hundreds of years ago - than the company they source it from. I guess it makes sense that there is a company that harvests those same logs called Timeless Timber.

According to the certificates of authenticity supplied with the DW Craviotto "Timeless Timber" maple and birch snare drums, the timber was reclaimed from Lake Superior by the "Lake Superior Water-Logged Lumber Company". The timber was sourced from Pike's Bay in Bayfield, Wisconsin.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your feedback. I have six display cabinets scattered about the house. Here's a (very ordinary) photo of two of them. The other cabinets are better located in a more spacious room but the room itself is very dark and difficult to photograph. The cabinets have internal lighting and the drums look great under lights. Thanks again for your interest.

Dave,
Thanks for your response and those snare displays are incredible. Talk about bridging the gap between Australia and Northern WI, USA. Bayfield is 10 miles from Ashland, my birth place. Timeless Timber is about 1/2 mile from my parents house. I know exactly about the process. There was a lot of first growth lumber that was lost in early 1900's. It was harvested in northern WI and transported via barge on Lake Superior. Some of it was lost to large storms which frequent the area and sat at the bottom of the lake for many years. Because of the very cold water and lack of light the logs were very well preserved. Once the outer layers were removed it was pristine lumber not seen for many years. Originally the process of removing the lumber was protested by many. Eventually the permits were allowed and logs removed. I knew they used the wood for many high end string instruments, cabinets, veneers, turnings,etc...but this was he first I heard about drum shells. Thanks again for sharing.
Wayne

Thank you for all the positive feedback - it's great to exchange views and ideas with people who share the passion. I am toying with the idea of setting up a website where I can post information and studio photos of each drum from this collection. Like many things, though, it's a matter of finding the time...

Regards from Perth, Western Australia.

I was wondering where that Tony Williams drum went to and now I know. Should've guessed really. :o)
