Comments about Ahead 6"x14" Black Chrome on 3mm CAST Bell Brass with Chrome Trick Throw-Off:
I ordered this drum in the polished brass finish, and liked it so much I ordered the alternate colour in black chrome, as an alternate. This is an outstanding drum for the money! My advice would be to grab one while you can, especially at this price. I wouldn't be surprised if you start to see these sell out or become back ordered very soon. I don't know if there's a better bang for the buck snare out there right now. This drum just oozes with quality, looks gorgeous and plays/sounds fantastic! The drum is outfitted with all the components I want on a drum, being - S hoops, Fat Cat wires, Trick throw off, Tight Screw tension rods, and Remo heads. The lugs are also a nice, unique alternative to ordinary tube lugs. I really find the 6" depth ideal, as I found myself alternating between 5.5" and 6.5" snares often, wishing there was something in the middle.. Bob Kasha deserves a lot of praise for designing and offering a drum of this caliber at this price. Good for him!.....and even better for us drummers! I believe this is the drum that most drummers, particularly heavy hitters, dream about, but normally can't afford. Now they(you) can!
