    Default Ian Paice used snare

    Later today I will check out a used Ian Paice Snare . It's at a local shop . The only thing I'm leary about is it has no tension lock washers on it . They want $200.00 (no haggle) damn ! They go new now for around $350.00. If it passes Skeld 'S OCD standards it will accompany me home.

    I know this is a great Snare . It's step brothers are waiting. The only regret I have Is sold the Aluminum Sensitone .

    Any Ian Paice Snare owners can feel free to chime in. If it is too nicked up I might wait and save for a New one or a Aluminum Sensitone. There I go again!

    Dude. I would buy your Diamond Burst snare in a heartbeat if the price was right...

    I wouldn't need another snare!

    The only snare I own for now. $200 is a good price if it's in great condition. Bummer no tension locks.
    Does it have the internal dampener ?? I love my IP very much. Under appreciated snare IMO.

    Thanks for the replies.As far as the Diamond Burst MMP Snare goes sorry DS but no way would I part with it. Well here it is and in like new condition. It came without the tension lock washers and it doesn't bother me at all. It came with brand new heads & all I did was polish it up . It sounds awesome! Enjoy it will be used this Friday at a gig.

    Nice looking snare. I've never played (or even touched) and Ian P. snare drum. It looks a lot like a re-vamped and slightly improved Sensitone Elite in 6.5x14 size with tube lugs. As for the lug locks, I think the snare looks better without them. It probably sounds better too. My favorite snare is my Pearl 6.5x14 sensitone, so I'm sure this one's even better.

    As for the Aluminum Sensitone... You can still find them used on Ebay at pretty good prices. Years ago, I just bought the aluminum shell and swapped out parts from another Sensitone to get a complete drum. When I put it together it was about 1/4" out-of-round. I disassembled and gave it a gentle bend on a carpeted floor and it's now PERFECT.

    The aluminum sensitone is an odd bird as snares go. Mine has sort of a dry, deep sounding, crack. It lacks some of the overtone and ring of my other metal snares. In some rooms the aluminum rocks. In other rooms it's just "meh." Personally, I think the aluminum is a life-time keeper. Go get yourself one!

    Thanks Andy , Eric & D4L. The Ian Paice Snare is going to get used a lot . I think I might get a Aluminum Sensitone in the future but for now this will do well.
