    I just sent you a PM, but I'll say it here, welcome to the PDF.

    That is a very lovely Dynasty, I'm diggin' the green. I think would have one with chrome hardware over that color if it were me buying it, but the black looks very sexy.

    I'll post new pics of my snare when my new bottom head gets in.

    Here is ChiaPet's 2008 Phantom Regiment snare; I've copied and pasted everything in his orignal post for you guys.
    _____________________________________________
    Hello. Look what the cat dragged in early this morning!


    To start off, I must say that this drum is a BEAUTY. Pictures do not serve any justice to this drum.
    One thing I must tell you is that the laminated shell finish is not actually GOLD or BROWN, it's yellow! That's right! You must see it in person to notice the hint of yellow it gives off.

    When I first wanted to buy a used corps drum, I purchased a 2008 GLASSMEN Snare drum but due to Columbus Percussion and one of their Glassmen Representatives, they got my order mixed up and they couldn't sell me the drum because another school had already purchased it. However, I did purchase the drum before the school but since the school bought the whole set, they figured it was easier to let all the drums go rather than one by one. So I was told that my "glassmen" snare would come in about 2 weeks, I ended up waiting a month for it until I heard that it was never going to be shipped in the first place. So then Dynasty apologized to me about the mix up, this and that and offered me two choices. Blue Devils 2008 or Phantom Regiment 2008. Growing up in California, I am in love with the Blue Devils but their drums weren't really that special to me. So I chose the Phantom Regiment snare because well...they did win a Championship and High Drums! So I waited another month and finally..it came!

    Now...Pros and Cons of buying used drum corps equipment!

    Pros:
    Custom Finish and Hardware[Depending on what corps you buy from or brand]
    Free drumheads..? [My Phantom drum came with a Black Max and a Falam II already on the drum]
    Cheap pricing compared to an exact replica.
    HISTORY! The drum comes with DCI HISTORY! CHAMPIONSHIPS!

    Cons:
    Used [Depending on which Corps or Brand you buy from, gear used by drum corps are known for being abused, heavily used, etc.] I was lucky enough to get one of the better conditioned snares.
    Scratches N' Dings [It won't be scratch or dinged free]

    Enjoy!

    East Central High School, St. Leon, IN. yeah we were the first to get that finish from yamaha. that first pic is from like 2 or 3 days after getting them and the others are from a month ago. if you are into WGI, then we made semi-finals this year in our second year of competing in Scholastic Movement A Class. we almost made finals. our show was Safari: The Hunter becomes the Hunted, if you would have heard anyone talking, we were liked by many. we also have a Concert Open Class that just hasn't been able to make finals the past 2 years after making it our first year of competing in WGI. we will be coming back this winter for our 4th year competing in Concert Open and 3rd year in Movement A. this is my final year of High School and i will definitely miss Winter Percussion. i hope to make the blue stars snare line this coming fall/winter.
