    Default First snare drum project!!

    This is my first snare drum build ever. I purchased the walnut shell from a buddy on another forum for 100$. He applied the varnish, did the edges and drilling. The hardware all came from Drummaker. Wooden hoops also from Drummaker. Trick throwoff was on ebay Hope you guys like it!!!:]

    OH, and the snare wires are still on backorder haha (2 weeks now!!!)

    So someone put the varnish on the shells, drilled the holes and cut the bearing edges. How is this snare "your build"? You screwed on the lugs and other HW? Not very demanding.

    Very nice snare though.

    You've got a good looking snare there. The shell looks like a veneered keller, right?
