Yeah, thanks. I have a one ply steambent Radio King and love it. Also a couple stave shells, one is zebrawood and just plain awesome.I’d get a stave or steambent rosewood. The Gretsch is nice, I have one, but stave or steambent will give you more of the character of the wood.
Yeah man! I chose a 6 in depth to add some more characterAs much as I love the fast response of a 5-inch snare, for a really special wood like cocobolo, I feel like a deeper depth would let you hear more of its voice. I’ve got a steambent 6.5x14 rosewood that just makes me smile when I hit it off center. It’s got a ton of character.
