I bought a 5.5 x 14 Steambent Black Cherry shell from Drumfoundry off EBay.
I have had great luck with their shells.

I just got a Porter & Davies BC2 Tactile Drum Throne Monitor System with Extra Wide Throne Top, already, this thing has been a lifesaver when my monitor speakers went out, the fact that I could actually hear as well as feel the other players through my seat speaks volumes about how great this system is!

I'll see your 5.5 and raise you a 6.5!
Just bought this one. I know you like these shells and I've wanted a 6.5x14 solid cherry.

New to me 20" K ride(block letters) and 17" K Custom Dark Crash. I've had these on layaway for a couple of months. I now have 2 Ks and 1 K custom.

I picked up one of those Sabian SR2 10" splashes for like $35 on sale. I was actually surprised how decent it was. Very musical, way less trashy than Wuhan. At this price, I was happy.

Very nice ! Eric Sooy makes great shells. I bought a 6.5" Walnut off him two years ago and it is one of the best sounding Wood snares I have ever heard.

These are such a great deal for someone looking for a steambent solid shell snare and can't afford a Noble and Cooley or Craviotto.

JoJo Mayer's Secret Weapons for the Modern Drummer.
I've watched the first disc once and the second disc twice so far. Lots of practical advice and it all seems like very doable excercises. I look forward to watching it many more times and I would highly recommend it for any drummer.

Retired my worn-down old Pearl throne and bought a Tama 1st chair with a backrest. Very happy with it! Never had a backrest before, it feels good to have on longer practice sessions.

What's the shell thickness? How does it sound?

1/4" board with oak rein. rings. Very clear and articulate tone. It is a loud drum. Sweet tuning low and mid ranges. It has a warm and long sustain. I really enjoy this drum.

Thanks RickP. I'm pleased with everything about this N&C build, my first and it will not be my last.

Just got my first Sabian, a HHX Omni 22in. OMG I am blowed away. It is every thing I had hoped and more. Crashes like a huge fast crash, the ride is deep, dark and cuts. The bell sounds great too. Im off work tomorrow so I will be recording that bad boy for sure. Video demo coming

I bought back a 21" K Custom Organic ride I had swapped to someone. I was listening to a YouTube video I was playing on with this ride and I realized what a great ride it really is and that I wanted it back. They are cool rides and very versatile with outstanding bells. I love it for Latin tunes and Big Band.
