Hi!
This is Norway calling..
I wonder if anyone has any comments about this model?
For my next snare purchase I know I will choose a wood shell, but when I look at pictures of this drum, I get the impression of that this drum consists of just as much metal.. Does the free float concept really make it?
Would you recommend other wood/(maple) snares in the same price class?

Btw, I would like the snare to be a nice alternative to my current snare, which is a Pearl Sensitone Classic II BRASS 14x5.

Thanks,
Eirik

I just find them to be quite ear piercing cracky sounding snares. I haven't however sat down and tuned them to played on one outside of the drum shop. Quite a few people have them and love them. I did pick this one up and look at it. Quite the nice looking piece.
