Yes, thanks, my son's bed is used as a rack, I must find cash and time to order your rack to put them now but I have to find a place where I could put the rack in the music room, my wife wants to rent the room as a week end RB&B so, no way I could use it besides just for the photo. She said I already have e Den for the mixing room and one room in the basement for the pracrice room so... No more spreading instruments everywhere!!!
So, thanks to you and other people on this forum, you helped me a lot for this collection to know what to look for.

Well, not good for the bank account but as soon as you start discussing with Gary at Summit drums, you have to buy some snares from him.
So, I thought I would never buy deep snares and at the end, I got my 15x8 Walnut from him but as you may know, it's also a 15" Tom with a crazy good Tom sound. So, I was thinking to tune it up a bit up but then, I would loose the Tom sound that was so tough to get.
Well, the solution might be to have another deep snare? And he had one in stock, 14X8, Beech / African Mahogany / Beech.
I hesitated but he told me that this one had an exceptional sound so, I could understand why, his Mahogany snares are great and with beech, the two woods configuration should bring a lot to the table, so, I posted a deposit and I just have to pay the balance when my Christmas gift and anniversary cash will come from my Mom within the next few weeks:
below are his pictures:

Well, I did it again!!! I was looking for a good deal on the Tama Starphonic Raw Copper or Aluminium as I have only 2 metal snares...And found this magnifiscent Tama SLP G-Maple Zebrawood Gloss finish!! I wanted a gloss finish on one of my snare but was more thinking about Noble and Cooley or Casks...So, I called the store, Musique gagné, I know them, they have already given me good deal on the Tama Star Reserve Sendan and the Benny Greb brass...So, I asked about the gloss finish and the guy told me it's awesome, so, I bought it...But with what I have saved compared to the Star reserve Brass or Copper that are gone up crazy here, I might be able to score a second snare in fact. I have no 7" deep and no black hardware so, I check two more boxes on my quest"
