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
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.
Had a guy here in michigan make this for me about a year ago... Stave walnut with DW magnetic hardware which i love. Super fat sound and hasn't left my stand since i got it. first purchase i have been 100% happy with. and really inexpensive.
P.S. i wanted the oil finish.. i am not a fan of gloss.. scratches and fingerprints. NEVER!
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.
