    So this is rather different for me. While I find many SJC Drums to be hideous, their barbershop wrapped finishes appeal to me. Sweetwater had a yellow tag sale for select drums so I took a chance on this one.

    7x14 USA custom with 3.0 flanged hoops and satin hardware. Came with a 2-ply Evans G2 batter. Not normally my cup of tea for snares but it seems to work well here. Plenty of volume, killer rimshots and focused, with very controlled overtones, probably because of the two ply head. Nice tone, and different from my other 25 snares. Not the most sensitive. Great rock/backbeat snare. Proprietary strainer isnít especially smooth but itís functional. Believe SJC is still using Keller shells but that is supposedly about to change. Someone spent a lot of time getting these strips of wrap to align just so.

    That's a very neat-looking drum steady! I love the wrap work and the satin hardware. I wish the strainer were satin as well, but you can't have everything.

    Thanks Matt. I wish the strainer were a Trick like they used to use. Yeah, with this much attention to aesthetics, you’d think they’d have matched the strainer. My strainer is usually kept around the 7 o’clock position so it won’t be seen but still...

    I agree. I don't care for the look of those lugs either.
