    What's a good brass snare drum you guys recommend?

    A hammered metal shell. Hammering counters overtones. Also cottonballs replacing those little foam pads inside the lugs to keep the springs from resonating. Hammered Bronze or copper would be nice too. I'm unsure if DIY hammering would crack the chrome on a chromed shell.

    Quality of drum shell - finest In your opinion

    Keller shells are great. Then I discovered birch toms So, i hybridized the kit, the bass drum and the 12" rack are maple. The 10, 13, 16 toms are birch. The snare is chrome over steel, which I'm still trying little set up changes.

    "Longer" 7A drumsticks - suggestions?

    Vic Firth "Free Style" 7A, are a new design concept. They are 17 inches in length. YouTube Vic Firth to hear the conceptual explanation. I have 4 pairs and a light touch around the kit, so I'm not breaking sticks as a matter of course. If I use a heavier stick it is a 3A.

    Round vs. Saddle throne?

    Good point! I use both, but the saddle is preferred for the kit, and the round is used on the conga/percussion set up. And although I never really thought about it, it might be movement as I move around a bit more on the hand percussion.
