      Comments about Ahead Black Chrome on Bell Brass Snare:

      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!

          Comments about Ahead Black Chrome on Bell Brass Snare:

          I've owned the Ahead Black Chrome Bell Brass snare drum for a couple months now and I love it! This snare sings on medium & higher tuning! I've used a Remo Coated Emporer, a Remo Coated CS, & a Remo Coated Powerstroke 77. All these heads responded very well, and brought out different qualities of this snare with each head. I ended up replacing the hoops with die cast & use the Remo Coated CS. The Ahead S-Hoops are great, I just prefer die cast on my bell brass snares. I'm totally impressed with Ahead by their build and choice of hardware. Seriously considering giving one of their other Brass snare's a go and may even purchased the polished Bell Brass version just for a different look! Highly recommended for the price! I own a Gretsch USA BB, and the coveted Tama BB. I feel this snare gives the Gretsch a run for it's money, and is a great close sounding alternative if you don't want to spend the money for a Tama.
