    I'm glad you are content to pay all that money for drums with roses on them. To each his own.

    I can get the same shell from the spinning company in China for $55 and most of the hardware from dFd...

    Dale,

    I think paying $1,500-$2,000 for a snare drum with an "elegant" strainer and a different badge is crazy. But, that's just my opinion.

    The shell and the rest of the hardware (whether...

    I think this Joyful Noise snare looks fine, but all the hardware is just the generic stuff sold by dFD. The steel shell is also available everywhere online.

    What is it about this brand that...

    Hi Tasty,

    I pick up the bronze shells (and badges) whenever I can get them cheap. I've resold all of the shells so far.

    The next time I come across a custom alloy bronze shell, I'll let...

    Hi,

    The warm weather inspired me to build another addition to my personal "Custom Alloy Bronze" series using 3mm bell bronze shells. This one is 14x8.

    Hi,

    Yes, the one in the picture is a 14x10 "floor snare" drum made through Masterworks. You can always order these and various sizes are available (besides the 14x10).

    You just have to know...

    You shouldn't have any problem getting 52mm lugs from Pearl. If so, send me a PM and I can get you some.

    You can also resolve the issue by using an extra plastic washer on each tension rod...

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, I don't make any videos.

    All the recordings I have are with drums at the churches were I play. I don't bring my own equipment anymore.

    Hi,

    It's been warm lately, so I had a chance to get back out into the shop and work on some additions to my "custom" Pearl Sensitone snare collection.

    Hi Bob,

    Yes, it's a cajon made exclusively for Guitar Center. Pearl has done this for a while and this one is the latest version.

    There is no manual or instructions with these kinds of drums....

    Good points.

    I recently built a couple of 8" deep snare drums and centered the throw off on the shell to make it easier to reach.

    I agree. I would never go back to "hanging" larger drums. My 14x12 and 16x14 are floor toms.

    I've also starting using an auxiliary "floor snare" with my kit for the same reason. Positioning...

    I like the contrast of the red color in the badge with the light blue-gray color of the shell.

    Hi,

    The Sensitone snare drums have 10 lugs because they are not targeted toward the entry level market (like the Modern Utility). However, you can get a good sound out of either one.
