I see musicians friend is selling Drumcraft Certified Bubinga snare drums 14 x 5.5 for $149 on eBay. With the Nickelwork throw this is a steal. I see Beech 6" ones for $169. Thought I'd pass it on. The price is worth it just for the hardware IMO. Wish I didn't just spend so much on my Roland kit or I'd nab a couple of these.
