    Nope. And I haven't bought anything... I'm still little bit suspicious about the "boxyness" of copper ff, I'm thinking that would for example Sensitone elite brass be better option.
    I dont know.

    Default Wouldn't trade my copper FF for the world

    I just wanted to chime in on the Copper FF discussion. I love it, and wouldn't trade it for any other snare, including the brass. The beauty of the copper is it has metallic properties to it's sound, but they are not as twangy and out-of-control as steel or brass shelled snare drums. I also have the Maple FF, and find it interesting and different, even when compared to my Masters Maple snare with the same dimensions.

    Does anyone know the shell thickness of the Pearl copper snares? Their site doesn't give that spec.

    For example, the Nouveau lug Yamaha's and Tama Starclassic are 1.5mm., Yamaha Roy Haynes and Gretsch Antique Coppers are 1.2mm., Yamaha Mike Bordin is 2mm., and so on. The shell thickness also makes a difference in the response, not just the shell material.

    Ok, this isn't gonna be a very objective review.
    I'm in love!!

    The history behind this purchase was that I needed something different from my Reference 14x6,5 wood snare.
    I have not been satisfied with the brass snares I have owned (too much ring imo) so I bought a Gretsch 14x5 maple snare as a complement.
    That one sounded great but it didn't differ as much as I wanted from the Ref, so I thought I probably must go metal snare anyway...
    So I sold it and ordered the copper snare.

    Got it yesterday, unpacked it (wow! great look!), tuned it about the same range as the Ref... and...
    ...I'm so glad I bought it!!!!!!!!!!!
    Tight and crisp, but pretty loud and a nice slap that I wouldn't expected from it.
    It has, imo, all the good features of a metal snare, but with lesser ring, more controlled is word I think.
    This one I can play without any dampening.

    Ok, to be honest, this review is based on approx 10 minutes of playing, so I guess there are many of the readers that doesn't call that an actual review...
    But I believe in first impression, I my first impression of this drum was outstanding!

    From a guy that mainly dig wood snares:
    I highly recommend it!
