I was looking for a new snare on my gigging kit; I was used to steel, but ended up buying brass. The sound different, but now that I've tuned out the junk, its everything I wanted and more.

While the snare catalog says bronze exists, I have never seen it; it is also not up on the snare section of the website. I also rememberreading somewhere that someone (as you can tell my memory is very good) used an aluminum sensitone. I'd love info on either drum, but as I said, the brass is nice.

oh bronze is great but brass has a little more round sound almost to me while bronze is kinda sharp almost

I play bronze,brass,steel and maple.I would have to say bronze is rounder sounding than the other metal shells.Not so sharp like steel.Bronze is really closer to wood than anything else.But that is only my opinion.

That is a great idea for a sensitone.

FYI
Roli Garcia Jr sells them in 5"X14" and 6.5"x14" on his
website and Ebay....
I have a 5"X14" hand hammered steel and absolutely love it!
Ya'll gotta check 'em out! They were made for the European
market but Roli Sr. snagged a shipment.
Damn, my secret is out.........
