Let's see yours! Thought it would be good to see and hear more about your C&C kits and snares.

My Player Date I set, Big Beat configuration, Honey Lacquer finish:

14x22
15x16
14x14 (on order)
8x13
6.5x14

BB bearing edges, luan mahogany ply - great vintage sound and a great deal of fun to play. Handmade in Gladstone, Missouri, with exceptionally high quality, craftsmanship, and overall attention to detail. WMP inlay on bass drum hoops. Have not played another set since she arrived.

Beautiful kit you have there!
I have a C&C snare that I custom ordered and they did a terrific job with it.
David Conarroe was a pleasure to work with and made the process very easy.
14 x 7.5 maple/poplar/maple with their "Los Angeles" bearing edges with S-hoops.

Gorgeous kit, Thunder. And I love the paneling and even the rug!
(and the Crav's not too shabby!)

LOL! Thanks, man. My home within my home. Some day soon that wall will be a display...

Jeremy, thanks, great looking snare! C&C is great - combined with Chicago Drum Exchange they really have delivered for me.

Dudes and Duddettes of DW, where are all the C&C drums??!!

Jeremy, that is an absolutely beautiful snare. How does she sound?

V.O.S - The snare can be tuned down to be solid and fat sounding but when cranked higher it's sensitive for it's size. The depth gives the drum a nice amount of volume when laid into.
Their Los Angeles bearing edge gives the drum good projection/volume (I told them that I wanted a snare for a concert band).
Sonically it's very similar to this drum.

Here's my (new to me) C&C's. Bought used this past spring. I'll admit, they weren't on my radar when I was first looking for a new kit but I couldn't be happier.
Those are really beautiful !! Love the color. I like the shorter tension rods as opposed to the more vintage looking kit, but that's just personal preference.

Love the wood hoops! Have to say, that's one thing I've never had is a kit with wood hoops. Came close to grabbing an Ayotte awhile ago but....

Very nice!

Thunder, are you going to set up the 13/14/16 together? Do you plan on tuning the 13 up almost like it's a 12?
Redbeard, Yes. The 14x14" came a few weeks ago, I tuned the 13" up an 1/8th of a turn and the 14" FT fit right in. It still sounds like a 13" - these drums sound so good tuned low. Played with head selection a bit on the new 14' tom to dampen a bit more ring - settled with a Vintage Emperor batter and Vintage Ambassador reso, but I have them where I want them now and they sound amazing.
