Anyone know the difference between the Johnny C and the Diamond cast snares?http://www.moderndrummer.com/site/2015/07/video-demo-craviotto-johnny-c-series-snare-drums/#_

...the "johnny c" and "diamond cast" models both use a single ply maple shell with rings (and no inlays) as well as the same trick strainer/craviotto snares, so the sound should be similar...

...other than that, the diamond cast was offered in different colors, different sizes (i.e., 13"), different bearing edges in the case of the "maxwell craviottos" (i.e., 45/45; 30/30; bb/bb; or combinations thereof), and slightly heavier hardware (the cast lugs)...

...the diamond cast msrp/map was $1,495/$900, so the new johnny c's are quite a bargain (msrp/map $1,125/$650), imo...
