You could cheat a little and stick it on your finger and check it out
I love Coated Pins as bass and tom heads, but I tried one on a snare once, and it rang like hell. No matter what I did, I couldn't dial the sound in. Never again.It came with die cast hoops and a Pinstrip batter. Those were the first things to go. Wires were done as well.
I really like them the weckl sticks....And I do don't really need the Benny Greg brass snare besides the fact that I didn't have any brass snare and was never found of the so called Black Beauty sound...So, someone here proposed it as an option and I got a correct price on it and really the ping and the are beautiful, the two railing dampening systems are awesome to adjust it very easily, no need to put any gel on it.... I might buy in the future the beech one as a 3rd wood snare, after the summit Walnut.Ordered some more Weckl sticks.... kind of out of things to order for drumming.. although i am staring hard at a brass Greb snare.. just don't need it
Did you get it?This 1991 14x4 Jarrah Stave snare from Perth.

Very cool that they used a piece of Jarrah to fit the strainer and butt end.

He sends the original strainer one too. It needs a renewed locking pin.

These snares kick ass and the atrainer and butt can be reversed for us lefties.
Also I placed an order for the last ever made DW Drums Maple Mahogany shell (8x7) with Feathered Mahogany they could make, as mr. Good ran out of suppliers that together with some additional hardware.
Let the 6 month waiting game begin. Again ?
Made the mistake of stopping by the local shop, and ended up rescuing this little guy for 39$. It had some bad heads, rust and obvious neglect.
This is after a strip search and subsequent scrubb8ng. it was filthy but now shows some signs of life.
Pearl makes a fine drum.
Thanks! Man, after a thorough cleaning I put on a new remo fiberskyn batter head, tuned it up and this thing sounds great!That's a nice looking little snare. I see a greenish color to the snare? How does it sound? I bet better than $39.
