I'm partial to my resonant but sweet-toned Ahead 6x14, and I've played a Pork Pie Big Black brass that was as awesomely Bonham-y as anything named Ludwig.
I'm sorry, I should've clarified- I'm asking how you know that Copeland's old snare was a Pearl...?Not his actual snare drum, just the model that he used. I didn't mean to imply that. Mine came dialed in like his. They are really surprising snares that fly under the radar.
I think it was, but that’s hard info to find. Guys can’t really talk about the drums they aren’t endorsed withWasn’t it a Pearl Jupiter snare?

I want a giant room like that, but filled with nothing but drum kits. Cymbals and gear on every kit too, so I wouldn't have to swap every time I sat down at a new kit.On this Mike Dolbear video, Stewart Copeland is showing the instruments around his studio, and he displays "the" snare. It looks an awful lot like a Pearl Jupiter. Check it out- it's about 2 minutes into the video.
He’s right, I just found this http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=85333&stc=1&d=1553570592The B4514 has a the normal "Gladstone" type strainer. The Jupiter had a parallel action strainer with the rods going through the inside of the drum. That's the big difference, but it's the name you'll see come up when researching this.
It's nice. But I usually have only one set-up at a time. The others are stored and waiting to be played. Copeland's room is his music production studio. I'd love that. He's wired for sound and video in there too.I want a giant room like that, but filled with nothing but drum kits.

A kit for every mood! I can dream. What's it like Bo? lol.
I had a 1968 Premier HiFi COB that was a sweet as they get. Unfortunately a guy offered me twice what I paid for it and I let it go. I regret it to this day.Always lusted after the early models of the Premier 2000, circa 1967. They switched over to Alum shortly after.
Plating brass will brighten up the sound.Curious Doug...does it have to be chrome over brass and why? Would a non-chromed brass shell work too?
What is it that the chrome does to change the sound? I really have no idea. If I took a brass shell and chromed it...would it sound different than if I black nickeled the same shell?
Can anyone describe the differences in sound?
