    That snare drum is gorgeous. I've always wanted a copper snare drum. And that one is just my size, too.

    I'll have to remember that next time I'm in Golden at the School of Mines.

    Excellent. I can't say I've ever skied at Breckenridge, but I understand it's great. As for hints...

    I was re-heading, tuning, and playing these puppies today... they all sound great!

    Curious. You said most of these drums are sitting in cases. Why the need to re-head them?

    Funny you should post that, was using one of the SLP 13" G-Maple's in a studio earlier today, just one of the house drums, cranked up it sounded incredible. Definitely an SLP on my radar as the next snare, though probably the Fat Spruce, Studio Maple.

    Iíve been intrigued by the SLP line since its inception, so much so that I own four. The G Bubinga has been upgraded to black nickel die cast hoops thanks to Matt.

    I play drums every day. All of my snare drums get played. The stock batter head for Tama is typically a Evans coated G1, which is occasionally to my liking, but not most of the time. Most of the time, I change the batter to a coated Genera, coated Power Center Reverse Dot, UV1, or Genera Dry.

    I have a 7x13 G-Maple for sale, and a very pretty Fat Spruce shell (only). Out of all the ones you mentioned, I would definitely get a fat spruce when you get a chance... it is a beautiful, great-sounding drum!

    Your snare drum collection is exceptional Marv. I like every one in the bunch. That fat spruce kit is gorgeous!

    Actually that's what I love about 13" snares - you really don't need to crank them in order to make them sound tight and high, and you don't have to deal with the tabletop response of a cranked snare, which I really don't like.

    Speaking of 13" snares, here is another one I just had out... a DW 5x13 cast aluminum Collector's Series... a really nice drum.

    I was also re-installing the snare wires on a couple juicy Gretsch drums... both with 5/8" grosgrain. Gretsch makes some nice instruments as well.
