    I have a 5 x14 Noble and Cooley Tulipwood snare drum in transit. I have a few Noble and Cooley snares ( Maple SS; Walnut SS and Walnut Ply) and I have long admired the Tulipwood SS snares made by Noble and Cooley. They have a thicker attack than maple with great dept and mid range. They don't have the more articulate attack and richness of walnut but the Tulipwood has it's own charms.


    Update - added a pic of the Tulipwood now that it has arrived. A real winner for sure.

    I have major respect for N&C. Brady, N&C, and GMS are the forefathers of when custom meant boutique. Unfortunately, when the big companies started offer custom kits to everyone, like Pearl Masterworks, it took a major hit. Then the clones and the OCDP & SJC and the like companies took yet another hit, both never got the true respect they both deserve.

    What separates a Noble and Cooley from a MW? Serious question.

    I've heard of many, many issues with Pearl's QC. I know the customer service is supposed to be great, but that doesn't change how many issues I've seen pop up on Pearl gear. The first/only (so far anyway) issue I've heard of someone having with N&C was just recently. Apparently, the finish beneath the lacquer of a 30 year old kit had started 'checking'.

    You are referring to my kit that I pictured above. The checking is noticeable from up close but from two feet it isn’t. This was not a deal breaker for me because the kit sounds fantastic. I have a N&C Horizon kit and the finish is perfect as are the four N&C snare drums I own. I may get this kit refinished one day, but for now I will just play it.

    Today I have no idea. Back in the day, they were one of the first and the big dogs started copying them.

    For me, Pearl’s weight of their lugs makes the drums really heavy.

    The Reference line has heavy shells, with heavy hardware, including lugs. However, some of their drums have small, lightweight lugs.

    The original Reference lugs were bulky and heavy, but the STL (Reference Pure) lugs are not.

    So... the weight of the drum is what influences your respect level?
