    sorry to deprive you of a good reply but,

    ive also been lookin at getting a free floater and i didnt want to start a whole new topic for this question.

    since the shell is an inch and a half shorter than the actual drum depth, does that mean a free floating 6.5x14 has the sound of a non ff regular 5x14 snare drum?

    also, as long as i buy the shell a 1.5 inch shorter than the ff drum depth and with a flat bottom edge i can get any shell i can dream of? (or at least as long as a company can make it for me )

      Having to decide between the ultracast and the free floater, I decided on the free floater. I've only had the snare maybe a month or more and using the stock heads still....This snare sounds beautiful!! Lots of crack and body. Listen to 1 before you buy it. I think you will like it!!

              To answer blastbeetz question, these snares have a nice fat sound and you can crank them for a good crack, and yes you can substitute other materials in place of what's there aa long as one side is flat. I just got an acrylic shell and had a 47 degree bearing edge cut on it and it has a great sound, I also have a 6 ply maple and aluminum shells as well.

                Aluminum shell thats not a Tico Sig? Never seen that before. How did you get it?

                  No it's not a Tico Torres but it's the same shell, I bought this set-up used from the original owner and it came with the two shells and I never thought to ask. I believe however that this is from the early to mid nineties, I'll have to check up on it to make sure but you can see on the badge it is a Pearl aluminum shell.
