Better than a hole-in-one.
This metal-shelled 6-1/2" x 13" snare drum is precision-hammered in a dimpled golf ball pattern by a computer-controlled process, then powder-coated to capture the essence of the links. 15 holes are drilled into the shell (ddrum tried to get 18 holes in but there wasn't enough room). The holes are drilled between the slightly offset lugs to add attack and control to the shell, and die-cast hoops are added on each side for volume and articulation. The result is a snare drum that slams with the power of a 9-iron in the hands of a champion yet with the sensitivity of a master-stroke putter.

The looks, features and price sold me on this drum. Once it arrived I immediately changed the heads and snares and was really disappointed with the sound quality. After seven different head combinations I decided it was not me and the drum just doesn't sound good. I've used it in a studio setting and live settings and every sound engineer said for me to please use a different snare. That is the first and last time I will buy a drum before I've heard it. Shame on me.
Alright, I've currently had this snare for around 1 1/2 years, and it is still awesome! It's super loud, especially with a rimshot. There's a coated Ambassador on top and a snare side Ambassador on the bottom. If there's no dampening ring on it, it's really ringy. I use it in my church's band, and it has a great pop to it. I also get plenty of compliments on the unique finish.
i got this drum for christmas. i was surprised that it came with a pretty nice remo coated head already on it... none the less i swopped it out for remo coated powerstroke III, topped it off with a remO ring to get rid of the little overtones, and tuned the baby up to get a nice poppy, slightly dry, yet quite powerful sound. I play drums in a hardcore band, at my church, and i prefer playing jazz/funk/gospel/latin... pretty much everything...basically what im getting at is, it fits all styles. it is an amazing drum for an amazing price. Dont talk yourself out of it, JUST BUY THE THING!! oh yeah, i forgot to mention its probably the most beautiful and unique snare ive ever encountered as well!
This snare is fantastic. I got it and tuned it nice and tight and it sounded wonderful in under 5 minutes. Unfortunatly, its not very loud live. I have heavy cymbals that tend to cover up the ghost notes of the snare. This is probably thanks to the vents. If you have the ability to play with mics or are looking for a studio snare, definitly an awesome buy!
For the price, this drum can't be beat! I stlll have the head that it came with on there and I've owned it for about 5 months now and it still sounds excellent. As far as the snares rattling, just loosen u the nuts where it attaches and tighten it, duh! It has a real nice pop to it and it cuts through live much better than my maple snare.
I unpacked and put the snare staight to work at a gig (big dick's Halfway Inn - Lake of the Ozarks).The attack is bright, with the head and snare tight, it has a loud crack and snap. I play resort gigs, the golf theme is fun ;)
I bought this snare because I had been using someone else's for a good while. I saw it and thought the price was great, so I ordered it. I have not had any problems in the past few months that I have had it. There's a Remo pinstripe with an Aquarian studio ring on it that sounds great. (The dampening ring in the pinstripe does not seem to work as well as it does on my toms). I would reccomend this snare to anyone.
I bought this snare and the first thing that strcuk me was how beautiful it is. However, it does have some minor flaws, such as the snare wires, they rattle. Just enough that if you were paying ghost notes, they wont sound like a snare but more like a tom. But if you are playing metal, GO FOR IT!!!!
This is a fantastic snare. While the 1.5mm shell and powder coating help warm the tone, the vents and die cast give a wonderful dry attack. Small imperfections are there, but the upgraded throw-off, precision hammered shell, and overall fun of this drum makes it %100 worth the price.
