Default DW Black Nickel Over Brass Snare (Pics Inside)

I picked up a new snare drum today. It's a 6.5 x 14 DW Collector's Series Black Nickel Over Brass with chrome hardware. It has a 1 mm brass shell plated with nickel. It has 3 mm True Hoops, 10 lugs, Mag Throw and 3-Position Butt Plate. I replaced the stock heads with an Aquarian Single Ply Coated w/ Power Dot and a Classic Clear Snare Side.

The drum is heaver than a 10-ply maple of the same size, but not as heavy as the DW Brass snare. I've only played it for about 20 minutes so far with about a medium / high tuning. I'm very pleased with the way this drum sounds from the cross sticking to the rim shots and everything else in between. I'm not using any muffling, with the exception of what the reverse dot provides, and the overtones are pleasant without being too ringy IMO.

Hey thanks! It was a challenge tracking it down (didn't want to order it if I didn't have to).

Thank you. The 10˘ mic on my camera couldn't do it justice. Here is a clip from a retailer's YouTube channel with a better mic and better chops than me.
