    I just heard a chrome over steel DW 8x14 with the smaller lugs. It had a bit too many overtones, but for under $300 it sounded great.

    The smaller lugs look so much better!

    I agree too. Never liked the larger DW turrent lugs.

    Hi,

    Here's another custom Pearl Sensitone snare that I added to my collection this week.

    This one is a 14x8 beaded black nickel over brass shell with ARL-65 lugs, SR-150 strainer, Fat Tone hoops, SST-5055 tension rods, and Ultrasound 1442-I snare wires.

    I don't usually play 14x8 snare drums, but I really like the way this one can be tuned low with a big, fat snare sound.

    I just don’t understand why they would want to cover up those nice finishes with them and why we don’t see the smaller ones in the custom line.

    My sentiments exactly. I think Sonor makes the same mistake with those big double-mallet lugs they use.

    Ugh. It’s not even a fabulous finish and they still ruin it.

    Yep, you'd think with all the effort they make to sell exotic drums, that they would think about balancing the finish and the hardware more aesthetically.

    Fixed.

    What does the shell sticker say on the inside of the drum? Mine just says "Bronze", and there is no seam...
