    tonight i've played my reference snare drum,after reheading it top and bottom,decided to put my ultracast at rest for awhile, which i've played exclusively in the last year.....this drum still has the same effect on me: i'm totally owned by this snare drum.

    to me, anyone serious about snare drums,who like to owns more than only one , SHOULD OWNS one of those wood reference.

    i'm serious when i say it's probably the most powerfull, versatile,quality built,best sounding wood snare on the market.

    seriously......i consider it like a well tought and built race vehicule: you can get easy on the throttle,still,even if there's a race engine in it,it will turn smoothly without a hicup ,waiting gently for more serious business. then,just a little pressure on the gas pedal,and it immediately comes to life in a powerfull,yet linear way,delivering all it's power equally across the rpm's. this drum act the same ; it push a beautyfull sound ,either at medium or high tuning ; it is sensitive like no other snare drum.it provides a ear piercing power, but is easily able to sing ,even under a very light touch .

    every drummer should own one; you guys should try to get a hand on one, and try it for 10 minutes only. with a good head,well tuned,you'll be amaze about how this drum possess all the qualities we ask from a snare drum.
    I have always wanted a reference snare after hearing them. If the cost wasn't so high, I would order a Masterworks in Reference specs so I could get it in the same finish as my kit. I am not sure if you can get the reference snare in that color without going through Masterworks, and even if I could not sure it would be any cheaper. The only thing I can't decide on is if I would want the 5" or 6.5" depth

    i'm a 14X 5 guy lol. it respond a tad faster,and lol..in case of the ref snare maybe a little less heavier haha. seriously, you'd be happy with the X5 because from where i stand ,it's powerfull,and has enough tone in this spec livery to not have to go with a 6.5. of course,it's all a matter of what you're used to,and preference

    not sure LD what color your kit is, but i see those snare drums used for 600-700cdn regularly.mine is root beer fade,and it match my anthique sunburst tama perfectly,same tangy color tone. back when i bought it bni,their price was still quite acceptable,i know ref snare prices sky rocketed not sure why, probably because the ''aura''' they carry,everyone wanted one back in around 2008. i wish you luck,because if ever you snatch the one with the color you want, i know it'll be one of your keeper drum.

    My kit is "Ocean Sparkle" (#165) and is still an option for certain series. I know I can get it with Masterworks for sure, I priced a shell for my FF last year but never pulled the trigger Maybe its time to ask around

    I would love a Reference Snare or a Bronze Snare but I'm already too loud with the 6 ply maple MCX snare.

    Oddly enough Lonny, I think that a snare like the ones you mentioned can actually help us play more dynamically. Really explosive drums usually dont require as much effort to get them to open up. Getting more feedback at lower dynamics forces us to play with more touch in my experience. My favorite snares and toms are always capable of being very expressive at low volume playing. Just my take.

    I am a fan of the Ref snares also. Though I did sell my 14x5 wood snare when I sold the Ref kit, I still have the 14x6.5 Ref brass snare. I have just sold 2 other snares, and the Ref brass would be the last I'd sell (before my Eric Singer Sig which is a keeper).

    I couldn't ask for anything more from a snare drum than I got from my MCX snare. I would like a Ref Snare and a brass snare but it gets ridiculous what things I would love to buy if I only had a money tree.

    You can't post demonstrative things like "zombie" and then back away. You posted it on here, in the open. Explain what you mean.
