    Probably not just you, because they really look good. But just personally I very much doubt they sound good. Olive is not known to be a good wood for making drums or instruments, too soft. Which I am guessing is why they had to make those snares so thick to be half-way decent. And also, they have not lathed the inside round; it is just left as the straight edges of the staves, which would interfere with how the standing waves are set up in the drum. Just my view.

      Trust me...they sound good,they're made by a Italian company called Drum Art and theyr snares sound good...very thick shells,someone has told me that they'r not too mouch versatile,but for me it's not correct.

        Yes. I've played a drum art snare, and they are quite amazing.

          Good one! Have you ever worked with it? I have turned some nice bowls out of it. Belive me, it is hard as hickory, and even heavier.

                OK, seems I am wrong; thanks for correcting.

                (I still don't understand why they do not lathe the inside of the drums round?)

                    Pearl probably doesn't sell these in Europe or the states because they don't have dealership rights to Drum Art anywhere other than Japan. This isn't a Pearl snare, it's just a great snare that Pearl is distributing in Japan.

                          More and more builders are experimenting with the inside of the shell - either leaving it unfinished, or un-lathed, or coating it with something different than the outside of the drum. I've been building drums a short time and studying the drum builder forums and I've yet to hear convincing arguments one way or the other regarding how changes to the inside would affect sound. I have my guesses, but I don't have sound files to back them up, and I haven't been able to find anyone else's either.
                          To me, standing waves are a bad thing in any acoustic environment. That's what studios pay a lot of money to avoid. Parallel walls create standing waves which cause one particular pitch to ring louder than others. Since drums have parallel heads, that may be why they have overtone ring - standing waves. Again, that's just a guess.
                          But if I'm guessing right, then a round inside would reflect sound at more different angles than one that has not been lathed round and therefore would have less standing waves and less ring.
