Nice drum. Does it have snare beds? I owned a 6.5 back in 2000 and it was a dog. I pulled the head and there was no fxng bed cut in! Wtf, I never bought dw again. Did not know if it was standard for them or notWho knew FedEx delivers on Sundays?
Just got the DW Collectors satin finish maple snare in 6.5x14! I immediately swapped out the heads for Evans and I swapped the snares for some Canopus ones I picked up at the shop. Time to start playing!
Snare #2 arrives Tuesday! Woo hoo!

Yes it does. Most all DW snares have them nowadays. Maybe yours was supposed to be a True Sonic? Those were the DynaSonic replicas with no beds for use with snares stretched on its own aluminum frame? Coulda been one of those.Nice drum. Does it have snare beds?

Oddly enough, the last four All-maple Collectors kits I didn’t like. After a while I thought it was me. Now these cherry mahogany drums with thicker heads sound awesome. After a day I’ve got them dialed in and they sound like that sound I hear in my head.Where are you putting all these drums you buy? Hope you like the DW. I've not played one yet that I liked. For some reason though I've not found a PDP that I didn't like. Interesting eh?
A matching cherry/mahogany snare nobody had - so I’d have to special order one. And I noticed the exotic wood snares didn’t come with re-rings, and I wanted those. But the deal with the snares were to have two same size; one wood, one metal, so I can cover the spectrums.I like how the grain is subtle and yet it makes for a beautiful drum.
I don't know if DW even makes them, but had you given any thought to using the same woods (mahogany and cherry) in a snare instead of maple?
I remember that you were going to check out some Canopus snares - were you not crazy about those? (I guess you liked the wires, anyway.)
