    It will be probably complete in a week or two and will be exactly like this one (except 13/7):
    You're nuts too, man. Beauty of a snare (the 13/7 makes it even better)!

    That is an absolute work of art. I’m not sure if I’d hit it or put it into a custom-made light box for display in my living room.

    Before you finalize that order, check to see if you can see the actual drum you'd be receiving. I've seen some with very dark stain, and very little figuring. Like many exotics, the grain can vary greatly.

    I would like to also warn you that a walnut snare might disappoint you, because it sure did disappoint me.

    A couple of years ago I got a limited edition 14/8 SLP G-walnut and it sounds nothing like what I thought it would. The snare isn't dark, isn't warm, isn't woody, it's just... bland. It has a prominent overtone similar to a metal snare but not as harsh, it doesn't have the body of a 8" deep snare, it just sounds like nothing special. I tried changing the wires, even got the new Tama sensitive hi-carbon ones, tried several heads - same thing, it just sounds like a generic snare.

    Haven't been able to sell it too.

    That's how I felt when I had this Global stave shell built for me made out of walnut, bubinga, and willow. He told me it should be dark sounding but I found it to be just how you described yours. It was beautiful which just made it that much more disappointing.

    The seller appears to have actual pictures with the listing. I think the grain where the light is shining looks good. I also think the black background makes the non-lighted areas look darker.

    I hope I don't have a similar experience. The sound samples I listened to sounded great at medium to high tunings. I found the low tuning pretty uninspiring.

    Walnut snares sound incredible, stick a single ply coated batter on there and take it up medium high, and you'll be a happy guy I'm sure!

    Heres my Natal Walnut stave in action -
    Pearl, Natal, Ludwig, Tama, Slingerland, Premier, Arbiter Drums
    Zildjian, Sabian, Zyn Cymbals
    PEARL, PREMIER, LUDWIG, TAMA, YAMAHA, NATAL and DW Snares

    Roland, Dauz, FAT KAT and Koby Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    5 Kits and 11 Snares, and I still don't have enough!

    I've never enjoyed watching music that I objectively dislike more than when you play it, Charlie. You're kinda my online hero.
