As you can see I'm a bit of a Ludhead. Nothing super expensive but all sound great.

Amazing photo quality! I should have me some of that :(

When I get my ass to Herefordshire, what say we have a grand time with your drums and my camera?

What does the iron snare sound like? Always been interested by one of them!

DDrum Brushed Iron is my favorite! It's fat , punchy , loud , warm!

Something between Brass and Phosphor bronze!

Here's one I have not seen anywhere, ever. It's a 1961 Super Ludwig - kinda like a Supraphonic, but with crimped snare beds. NOT a Super Sensitive - apparently an extremely rare drum. I love the drum - it's a little more sensitive than a Supraphonic, sounds great! COB, I think. Imperial lugs.

If you are unsure if it chrome over brass, a magnet will not stick to the shell if it is.

Been on a snare buying binge the last few weeks.
Gretsch 6.5x14 Cherry and Oak stave shells, Ludwig 6.5x14 Classic Maple Limited Edition in the Signet Indian Teak and a Yamaha 6.5x14 Sensitive Series in Cherrywood.

I only own a stock Sonor Force 3005 (which doesn't get used as it's too ringy) and Ludwig Black Acrolite that I bought for $40 and restored (for gigging), but here's my baby, it's pretty rare in this finish & size...14 x 6" Sonor Delite, Metallic Marine.

I got these Guru ovangkol wood hoops to try on my 13X7 Sonor Amboina Artisan Snare for Christmas from my wife. Thanks to Andy-can't say enough nice things about him. I had planned to have one of my daughters engrave and gold emboss the outside edges of the wood hoops a bit (so it matches the gold hardware), but I haven't been able to take them off to give to her and they are just so beautiful as they are. They sound awesome too!
