I was wondering about the sustain of it, comparing it with a shallower snare

The big cat is walnut/ maple, and the snare that came with the kit is 6.5 and walnut/ poplar with birch rings. The most notable difference would be the 8x14 just sounds more full and gives you just a stronger crack IMO. It took me a while to tune it, i tried a bunch of combinations to find what i liked. I ended up tuning it actually pretty high on both heads, which i didnt plan on doing. It still has a lot of low end even with it cranked up pretty high, that may be the walnut though? Either way its a great drum. I dont even have to buy a new snare stand either, i was worried it wouldnt go low enough but its perfect... I am 6'1 tho

Haha yeah, im 6"1 so i didnt even have to get a real low sitting snare stand. My current stand is as low as it goes though, and i imagine people under 6" would have a hard time setting it up comfortably without resorting to the especially low rise snare stands.

And Chaos_Inferno, i got the snare off ebay from a drum shop in california i believe. It was $250 brand new, shipped. To me it was worth it as Mapex discontinued the snare for their new line.

it doesn't matter how tall you are , you can always cut the pipe of the snare stand to get it as low as you want, it's very easy
