    Thanks guys... it's a very powerful drum as well. The shell is thicker than I typically enjoy, but it's sharp, throaty sound is eye-opening.



    Thanks TWH, let's see it!

    Yep... that's a nice one. It has the N&C diecast hoops, and black powder coated hardware. The size should be 4.75x14. Mine is the 6x14, with chrome hardware.

    I read on another drum forum that N&C may not be casting their own aluminum shells anymore... but that doesn't mean that the quality is down. Regardless, they are generally high-end instruments that...

    I bet that's a nice ride cymbal, that easily doubles as a crash, or vice versa!

    This is not unusual with Pearl lacquer finishes; we've seen multiple cases of this on the forum. Pearl's finish is thick and brittle... hence the lack of flexibility.

    It definitely has a different, bell-like tone that you don't find in other metal shells. The snare beds are really deep as well, so it takes a little know-how to properly install a snare side...
