I don't gig that much, not on drums anyway, so it takes a while to put things through the paces. At the same time you always sort of know.

It's not that I'm a Vinnie copycat, but I relate a lt to his feel and general sound.

I got a hammered brass snare after seeing him using one a lot. Like on almost every studio clip for many years all from the Electra session to the more recent Eisenberg stuff.

The never one, while being a good allround choice is a bit uneven in the top end.

I got this older, maybe hand hammered? one not too long ago. This is the same as Vinnie's and it is warmer, more focused and even in the mids. Suddenly a more useful jazz drum as well.

I have no problem seeing why Vinnie uses his so much. Might be slightly too dry for certain things, but really, if there was only on drum, this would do it all in style.

Nice snag!

More than a few DW Forum members would love to hear your feedback on this drum.

Here is my only decent drum actually. It's my Sonor 13 X7 Artisan Amboina snare with ovangkol wood hoops. Recorded with my Zoom Q2HD and used the software and "Clean and power". Thought I'd add sound. Needs a new batter head and a tune up but pulling it out of the closet (after several months of no play)it still sounds pretty good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLjazA0hEaI&feature=youtu.be

Thanks Vintage! I definitely plan on giving feedback soon. I want to spend some time getting to know her first. My limited time with her so far though has been wonderful. :)

I already posted this in the good snare thread but I'll post it here for good measure.

I picked up this Pork Pie Big Black snare drum last Thursday:



I ordered a DW Design series BNOB snare this past Qugust from Guitar Center. I've had my eye on the Pork Pie for some time, but the DW was $30 less. The DW was back ordered and I was told it would arrive in two weeks. Well two weeks turned into three months. I phoned Cuctomer Service to complain and was offered the BOB for $30 off. I canceled the DW order and picked up the Big Black.

It sounds good with the Taiwanese Remo stock heads, but will really shine when I put the new Aquarian TC-14 head on.

Ordered this in early August from The Drum Shop to match my kit. Arrived yesterday.
Collector's Pure Cherry 6.5x14 in natural lacquer with chrome hardware. Has the 50 pitch tuning rods. Like all DW drums, it was tuned and ready to play right out of the box.

1960's Rogers COB 5x14 Powertone.
Added Ludwig wires and snare side head and a Evans UV-1 batter. The UV-! is really nice and fit the shell with room to spare.

DW 6.5x14 Aluminum Wrinkle Finish snare.

Nice snag! I had that exact snare in my sights.

I'm glad you didn't pull the trigger!
I watched and waited for two days before I grabbed it. I wanted another N&C SS and this was a no-brainer. Still took me two days, though!

Got the shell off eBay from Farlow Drum Shells, Asheboro. NC.
5x14 Zebrano (Zebrawood), about 5/8" thick. I added lugs from Drum Factory Direct, INDe strainer and butt, Ludwig snare side and wires, Aquarian TC batter and eight coats of satin lacquer. Precision Drum drilled it.
The shell is pretty heavy and the Zebrano is a hard wood. 45 degree edges and wide beds. It sounds really nice, crisp and sensitive, great at low volume and really projects when you smack it.
I'm very happy with it and I have a 6.5x14 Walnut shell that is next up.
