    You might get slightly more ring if you remove the gaskets. However, if that is how it comes from the factory, I'd probably leave it that way. I'm sure Ludwig has done "tons" of...

    It's a really nice looking drum. It just feels like the market is tough on Custom co drums. Most I've seen go in the $200-$300 range unless it's something exotic like a solid shell...

    If it was mine and I was intent on selling it, I'd probably open the bidding at $225 or so and hope it sells for a little more. If you pay the shipping costs and use pay-pal, you'll probably eat...

    This is my DW 13x5.5 cast Bronze snare; you can find these on eBay for $500-$700. It is heavy (17lbs) with no seam. Loud, shotgun like rimshots/crack and a very pronounced ring. In the bell...

    Wow. That's cool. Glad I could help. What finish did you get. Please post some pics when it comes in. The 6.5 VLT has enough depth and presence. It's just more musical than a lot of other big rock...

    I read on one of the forums that gold, black and satin edge rings are available. The shell and the rings are cut so they fit like puzzle pieces, but no adhesive. Simple to remove. I was surprised but...

    Hey thanks. Hadn't thought of powder coating the edge rings. Great idea. This one was made before matching colored edge rings were an option.

    DW Snare Collection

    These are my DW snares, all have the mag throw-off and 3P butt-plate. I have one other snare, a Yamaha Jimmy Chamberlin sig that is currently on my kit.

    I'll add my two cents... These are the metal snares I won:

    14x5.5 Yamaha Jimmy Chamberlin Steel (1mm, rolled)
    14x5 DW Polished Brass (1mm, rolled)
    14x6.5 DW Chrome over Steel (3mm, cast)

    That is over $700 per drum. I think you could get a top of the line 3 piece from just about any company for the same price, save an exotic DW or a Sonor SQ2.

    However, if that is the kit you want,...

    My only problem is that now if I ever order a DW exotic kit, I'll have to go with something different, totally unique for me.

    I've had the same problem many times over the years with many different snares. This is my personal method.

    1. Remove the batter head, run a dry cloth over the batter bearing edges, tighten up...

    I hope whoever bought that drum isn't reading this, but I don't think that is even worth $380. It's 15 years old; must be one of the first edges ever made. You can also see where the brass and...

    $500 for an 07 edge in a wrap finish is a fair price; not great though. $700 should get you a new edge or a few years old one in an exotic finish.

    eBay can be awesome for DW snares, but there is...

    This is a video of Peart talking about the DW VLTs. The drum plays in the backround the first 10-20 seconds of the clip; cleanest sound for a VLT I could find on youtube for ya.

    I'm sorry; no sound clips offhand. My 14x6.5 VLT is extremely resonant naturally; with the snares off and not cranked, it almost sounds like a shallow tom instead of a timbale. The shell is fairly...

    DW Super Solids don't come in anything deeper than a 5.5; sounds like you are interested in a 6.5 or deeper. If you are committed to DW, a 6-7 depth in a VLT or X-shell for added low-end would...

    I'm a fan of the DW cast bronze too; mine is a 13x5.5.
