    Took a cellphone pic of my modest Sonor snare collection. Cover lots of bases with these: Heavy maple, medium beech and cast bronze. SQ2 drums are spectacular, but you’ll want to swap out the stock...

    Sadly, the drum didn’t ship as planned. The builder ran out of tension rods for an 8” deep drum so I’m in a holding pattern, waiting for the tension rod order to arrive. Should be soon.

    Not sure Matt. Most of their snares come with the Dunnett strainer, the big clunky (but functional) one. I prefer the Trick which cost a small upcharge. I’ll be happy with whatever one they use.

    Tribute to the great Simon Phillips. Nice tone but VERY controlled. The three air vents seem to work counter to the flanged hoops, which should open up the drum. You’d never need to dampen this drum....
