    Dean... I am still trying to work out what snare to use with it. Currently it is a 69' Supra and once a Gretsch snare that I am selling gets to Norway and I'm paid... I've got the new Ludwig Supra Black Beauty 6X14 with tube lugs, coming that was with the set. Both are going to be similar in character. But one COB, the other COA... still Ludwig. I've got a DW Edge broken glass and I've tried it in the set, just not sure about it. I think that my favorite sounding snare, right now, is my Yamaha MCA, but I think that blue sparkle would be just a bit weird looking with this kit. I know that shouldn't matter... but it just looks so cool. I am going to switch to single ply coated on the toms, today, just to see what they sound like. I still have the stock heads that've never had a stick put to them and I think they will be next... probably much like the G2's.

    Forget the Black Beauty. Sell the DW too and buy a Joyful Noise!

    Default Acoutin Snare

    Brian... checked them out on youtube. Tonally, they remind me of Sleishman stave... use to own one and there is just something about characteristics of resonance and attack. There just seems to be a commonality of tone. Picked up the Black Beauty today and am about to put a stick and a key to it. For the sake of peace in my home... I better take a break for a while. But, hey, thanks for tempting me, though.

    Sweet dude. That's a nice snare and I owned one awhile back. My joyful noise brass is like everything I love about the black beauty x 100. You should def check one out next time your in the market.

    Curt makes these drums to be similar to the black Beauty of the 20s. Very Heavy brass spun shell. All NOB hardware. Hand crimped beds. Good stuff.

    Yeah. That would be nice. Just spent 1049 on the Acoutin. I have a dunnett stainless steel. Would love a Brady she oak snare first

    Single ply i do not like that much...i hit them to hard with a 3A stick...and are not durable enough for me...

    My Tipp for Snare Drum, in my case a Ref.Pure 13x6,5...Emperor X! Sound killer, and still nice overtones! Give it a try...
    Definitely my go-to head for the snare as well. I used it on my RF, masters birch and masters MCX, all with fantastic results.
