  • I put one of these in layaway at GC today:



    (not this particular drum, but one just like it! )

    It's a Fibes chrome over fiberglass 5.5x14. The previous owner also sold-in a 6.5x14 Supraphonic, a 5x14 Arnoff signature drum, and a 6.5x14 Ferroni signature drum. I'll probably buy the Arnoff drum after I bring the Fibes drum home. The Supra looked pretty rough, while the Ferroni.... well, I'm not much for Pearl..

    Anyway, the Fibes drum is MINT! No marks on the shell and only slight stick marks on the original heads.

    Pics when I bring it home.

              I used to have one just like that. The one I had said CF Martin on the Fibes badge. I think for a while CF Martin owned Fibes.

              Anyways, great drum. Very unique, and loud. Sounded almost like a wood block. Not the greatest for recording but stellar for cutting through live (especially outdoors).

                  What didn't you like about the recorded sound? From playing it in the store, I thought it was sensitive, cutting, and loud...

                    It is a loud, cutting, & sensitive snare. no doubt.
                    But if that's all that mattered we'd all be using marching snares.
                    I thought it was a bit too 1-dimensional. Not a very complex sounding snare. Maybe I was just using the wrong heads for it, I didn't try many heads out. I remember using PS3, Emperor, and Evans high energy. It might have benefited from something like an Ambassador.
                    I wound up liking a Supraphonic quite a bit more for recording. But the Fibes is way louder than a Supraphonic.
                    I doubt you'll be disappointed with it. I still wish I had mine.

                      heh...

                      Marching snares are a joke for anything other than their intended use.

                        With a strainer that large, you run the risk of impaling yourself
