    I have to get back to wearing my plugs. The last 2 days, I've been playing without, because I love the sound of the snare, and my new rack tom heads.

    I hear you there! I just put together a new snare (using a shell from Chris, aka MusicMan) and decided to do the toms as well. Fresh heads always sound so great but I can't wait to wear them in a little...

    Agree! That kit and snare + snare collection is beautiful! Look forward to some more videos D4L!

    At some point we have to get your 6.5x14 Tama BB next to my Oriollo Bellmaker 65, and compare them, to see if one clearly outperforms the other. I can't believe the presence of this Oriollo.

    Thanks TM... busy with other stuff at the moment, but videos are definitely in the future!

    I forgot what thread this was. Here's a pic of the snare.

    I put tubes and a newer strainer on a limited edition 13"x7" steel. Added steel tension rods and I guess Pearl started making 13" Mastercast hoops with 8 holes, so I picked up a set of those too. The top head is a Remo Controlled Sound coated. The bottom is a Diplomat Hazy. Threw on some Puresound Customs with my go to red cross grain ribbon. Special shout out to Chris (Music Man) for the deal on the shell and tension rods!

    This is exactly what I want to achieve, only in 13/7. I talked to Vukan about a shell - he's ready to do it, and gave me a very reasonable price, but I'm still looking for a suitable SLP snare for a parts donor. I was thinking about cannibalizing my G-Walnut which has the strainer/butt I need, but the tube lugs have to be shortened, and I have to buy two new diecast hoops, which are quite pricey here in Europe.

    Speaking of hi-carbon Tama snares, MS20SN13C are virtually impossible to find, which really irritates me. I bought the "super sensitive" hi-carbon MS20RL13C wires, which flat out suck and I'm really disappointed with them.

    What are the specs of your shell, 3mm? What shape are the bearing edges and snare beds? Did he drill it for you? And finally does it have any kind of coating? Thanks in advance.

    Well, the search continues on.
    Actually, if you buy a SLP G-Maple 7x13 (with the Tamo Ash veneer) you will get everything you need. Mine came with the hi-carbon wires to boot!

    I forgot to mention, the other problem is the finish. Vukan will not clearcoat the shells (most likely because of the time and trouble involved with doing it well). I had Vukan ship my shell to Chris at Drums on Sale... and he clearcoated the outside of the shell only. The inside was too difficult due to the shell sticker. So the inside is natural, and the outside is coated... which is fine with me.

    I do have a G-maple and it is my main snare, which is why I don't want to sacrifice it for parts. The original snares on it broke and after not being able to find the same hi-carbon ones, I broke down and got regular 13" snares, which are not as good, but still better than the "super sensitive" ones which suck.

    I have bad experience with cymbalfusion, so I'll pass on them, thanks, haha. I was actually hoping to find an used or damaged G-maple, but they're unfortunately not so popular and the used market for them is virtually nonexistent.

    The reason for being more willing to cannibalize the G-walnut is that I really don't like its sound, and so far it's been impossible to sell.
