I got the Donati snare today and wow, its an amazing snare! It looks gorgeous and sounds awesome, it fits with my MRX nicely :D
The Firecracker I got for christmas and it is a nice little side snare. I only got it mounted with the rest of the kit today, so Im still playing around with the tuning with this one.
I got the Black Panther just before christmas, I have to say though, I only really got it for the looks, I couldn't resist its uniqueness, but it does sound good, a nice loud snare!

Heres the pictures.......

I think its just you.... :cool:

Its the same throw-off Pearl used on its pre-2005 Ultracast models. I believe they call it the SR-17 throwoff and it works just fine.

it looks cheap because it is the same type of strainer whihc are on really really crappy snare drums, and sometimes just don't work well


but the SR-17 works very well, no worries

looks fantastic! I have a steel black panther and I'd say it's one of the best snares i've ever heard.
