    For my 6.5, I have the brass, steel, and maple shells. I have the maple shell only for my 3.5". I love them all, and the piccolo is a great drum, surprisingly versatile for its size, I love it when it fits the music.

    The 6.5 is my favorite though, it works for everything. And out of the 3, the brass shell is my favorite. It's the one I keep coming back to. I try the others from time to time, or use them if the song needs it for recording, but for everyday use, I go back to the brass. A truly amazing drum! I know where you are coming from!

    Yes right?! It just had that tone that is warmer than steel but still cuts! I feel bad for my steel shell just sitting there lonely....I may have to buy some hardware for it! Lol

    I have been looking for another 6.5" chassis for mine as well. They used be readily available, until now that I am looking for one. Go figure!

    I had a free floater years ago, a maple piccolo. I sold it and have regretted it since. A few months ago, "my" music store had a rep from the Swedish general agent for Pearl/Sabian in store, and there were deals to be made. I bought the Maple/Mahogany. It has a full, focused sound, but is still loud enough. Love it! Got it together with a Sabian 18" HH Chinese for around 650$.

    Scroll back to post #103, I posted the flyer for this snare - might be of interest to you since you own the drum now.

    Nice snare. I occasionally check Amazon Japan to see what interesting items are available in the Japanese market.

    Although you can't purchase them from a Pearl distributor in Japan, if Amazon stocks it, they will usually ship it anywhere in the world. They also use Global Priority so the stuff I've purchased arrives in 2-3 days.

    Yes, it's a little over $100 for shipping a heavy snare by Amazon Global Priority.
