Snare Drum to Ocean Drum Conversion


Gold Member
I've been thinking for my New Age Lounge kit, an ocean drum would be kind of cool. Then I got to thinking about it the construction of ocean drums and snare drums is fairly similar.

Has anyone tried putting beads in a snare, I know LP makes a trash snare/ocean drum.

Also, my snare is a bit heavy, are there any ocean drums that fit in the same range as a snare but are easier to handle?
