    Nice! I do have some expensive snares (Black Beauty, Starphonics, Sonor vintage) although I've learned that tuning, head choice and snare wires can make a big difference. That being said I've played...

    Recently unearthed my 30 year old FF from it's case after long hiatus. The chassis, lug posts and S-011 strainer cleaned up real nice. The brass shell and die cast rims not so much, as a result of...
