    I’m not aware that anyone has ever made an 8mm thick cast bronze snare. If it were even practical to make, it would likely sound like hitting an anvil.

    Sigh, if I must pick one, my Guru segmented padauk 7x14, on the right. This drum sounds so unique and musical. The Guru padauk stave on the left isnt shabby either.

    Gorgeous drum Matt, and well kept by the looks of it. Try tuning the rods closest to the snare wires a bit tighter than the rest. Takes advantage of the crimped snare beds.
