    I've had good experiences with Interstate Music too, but it can be difficult to return an item.

    I hope they survive. Perhaps the big discount programs they offer have turned out to be detrimental...

    Great looking snare drum.

    I wish Pearl still offered the glossy or hammered copper shells.

    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.

    Using...

    I don't mind being criticized. I buy and build the drums that I want. I don't care what anyone else thinks. Nobody has to care what I think either. :)

    Matt,

    I don't think you know how to smile in real life. Hence, even friendly emojis bother you.

    BTW, I always thought that the Pearl kit you did several years ago with the black fade to gold...

    Steady,

    I agree. It's a matter of one's personal taste. I just think the Tama lugs look cheap. I wouldn't want them on an expensive drum.

    I think the Pearl hardware is classier and...

    It seems there is someone who resents the Pearl brand, but can't resist the Pearl forum where he can promote himself. Despite Pearl having gone out of their way to give him...

    I love the look of the maple veneer, but the Tama hardware looks like the entry level hardware that Pearl uses on their cheapest snare drums. I just don't care for it.
