            Hey guys, i wanted to share my experience with the wuhan snare i picked up a while ago. I found this thread and a couple others while looking for information on the wuhan snare i was considering a while back. Needless to say there was very little information available. I picked up the drum regardless and couldnt be happier with that purchase. The tube lugs are machined from solid steel and chrome plated, not die-cast. The throw is solidly built and super smooth and the butt plate is equally stout. The previous owner was unfortunately very inexperienced in tuning and proper assembly, as the hoopss had gotten warped and the screw holes were distorted from over tightening. The heads were also beat within an inch of their life and the snare side head had dents near the rim at each lug, another sign of horrid tuning methods. Fortunately, the shell was still level and in round, bearing edges unharmed, and the threads in the lugs were still nice and smooth. I replaced the heads with a remo hazy 300 snare side, coated ambassador on top. I also replaced the hoops with Gibraltar die cast hoops. After getting the hardware and heads back in proper functioning order, this snare drum became incredible. Super sensitive, nice tuning range, lots of body for a 13x5.5 inch drum and very cutting. I picked mine up for $120 shipped, after the replacement heads and hoops i was at $200 and quite happy to add that snare to my collection. I dont forsee myself selling this drum any time soon, if ever. The one question i have still remains unanswered regarding the drum: whats the shell made from? I must say tho, i am quite confident that its copper.

                I’m confused. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc so there will always be copper present in a brass drum.
