I got an evans calftone batter and reso heads for all my drums during cyber monday. And a hazy 300 + puresound equalizer snare wire for the snare reso. Was around $200 for everything.

Picked up this 14 x 7" Noble and Cooley Ash SS snare. The figuring of the grain is really fantastic. The snare is a superb sounding snare.
Very fat and articulate . It has a really wide tuning range , but medium seems to be the sweet spot for this snare. The Remo CS batter head ( my preferred head) is a winner on this snare.

Outlaw Drums purple heart segmented snare. It’s meant to honor American service members who received the Purple Heart. The distressed nature of the finish is supposed to represent the hardships that the service members endured.

Snare sounds great. Someone spent a lot of time on this finish. B9D4CEF7-EABF-4478-AD1E-A48DB7DE28D3.jpeg773F77C8-1F10-40D2-8835-EDBED860AE69.jpeg22DD459D-7E7C-464C-BF79-A0283E1BB18C.jpeg

That's a beautiful drum. So what's with the claws on the hoops?
Thanks. The claws are just an alternative way to keep a head tensioned that works for this kind of hoop. There is no real benefit and it’s done more fo aesthetics than anything I suppose. Other builders use claws of different sizes for snare and tom hoops. I had feared that stick strikes would bend or damage claws over time but one of my Van Kleefs has held up just fine.

How about a thread to celebrate and marvel at our newest purchases? I know I'll enjoy seeing yours.

Here's mine:

A mixed box of toys. Evans g2 over g1 coated for my yamaha kit, tight screws and trick quick release cymbal toppers.

A quick release hi hat drop clutch, some rods, some brushes, emperors for my saturn kit, and a 20" emad which could go on either of my 20'' kicks. Also a dw cowbell mount.

I'm so happy.

You must post pictures wherever possible.

Congrats on your latest acquisition... I just picked up a beautiful set of Yamaha Stage Customs, in Honey Amber. All Birch shells, Bering edges are flawless, matching snare... 10, 12, 14, 16, 22 & matching snare. I can't believe how good they sound! I was also lucky enough to come across a 24" Ping, which is so clean I thought it was new... (94' was the last year for the 24") now I need a super-heavy boom stand as this behemoth is extremely heavy... I was initially concerned about the Yamaha YESS mounts as I'm a heavy hitter, needless to say they are rock solid, and the toms are standard sizes, and the 14 & 16 are floor toms. As of this writing I have 36 snare drums & 3 kits, a Mapex, a Pearl Masters & a Ludwig prototype kit made of stainless steel, not to be confused with the steel kits of the 70s, which were sheet metal. The shells on this kit are approx 3/8 thick, extremely heavy and LOUD. My new Yamaha kit at a mere fraction of the price sounds and looks just as good... A bit bias perhaps as I've always had an affinity for birch.
