    I like the brushed finish and the unique size.

    I may get some cast aluminum shells from Oriollo in the future. I've really enjoyed using their cast bell bronze snares to make a bunch of different size custom snare drums (with Pearl hardware) over this past year.

    I like the contrast of the red color in the badge with the light blue-gray color of the shell.

    Really nice collection. I dig the Bell Brass! Is the Stanton Moore-signed drum a SM signature drum (or just a Gretsch drum you had SM sign)? Also, is that deeper-shelled snare, closest to the bottom of the pic, a steam-bent shell, or a ply drum?

    That is a Stanton Moore Signature drum from about nine years ago. It is 4.5" deep, single ply steam bent Birdseye maple. Truly it is an amazing drum.

    The 6.5" natural maple snare is single ply steam bent maple. It is a beast.

    Hi,

    It's been warm lately, so I had a chance to get back out into the shop and work on some additions to my "custom" Pearl Sensitone snare collection.

    These two sizes have 6-ply 5.4mm all mahogany shells with a natural satin finish.

    Pics are little wonky. Gretsch USA Custom 6.5 x 14 bronze. Sounds like nothing else I have ever played.





    Think it will go nicely with the satin white Renown I just nabbed.

    I posted this a few days ago in the What's Your Most Recent Purchase thread, but after having now truly been able to play it, I feel it is worth a repost, and a mention that this thing is INSANE. I love my Duluth BB snares for sure, but the Tama BB is a totally different animal. So crisp and ridiculously sensitive, with a crack that'll wake the dead, but with a depth of sound and a fullness at any tuning that is just absurdly wonderful. This truly is one of my goals for life checked off of the list.

    Part of that uniqueness you're describing comes from the cast bronze hoops you have there... that's quite a catch! Enjoy!
