    Default New Phosphor Bronze 14 x 6.5 Free Floater.

    I had to have this drum . I sold the Brass & Aluminum Sensitone snares to finance the deal. I hardly even used either snare drum and they spent almost all the time sitting on the shelf. Matt gave me a great deal on both but I didn’t use them so they went to someone who will.I found the FF at a local drum shop brand new. These snares go new from $599.00 to $750.00.

    This year has been good for drum acquisition. When I bought the two Sensitone drums my wife asked if I was going to keep them for any period of time well, it has been about a year.

    I bought one of those not just for the shell, but also very much for the hardware. I have added a Crystal Beat acrylic shell & also a zebrawood stave shell to use in the chassis. I am currently using the zebrawood shell for some recording I've been doing and really enjoy using the Crystal Beat shell for band practices (it just sounds great in our practice room, which only seems to like certain snare sounds). I've used the bronze far less than either of those other 2 shells but that's not to say it's because the bronze isn't great - it is. I just only have so many hours of play time available & so far those have been dedicated to the other shells. That shell is a winner. I think you'll really like it.

    Very nice snare Paul! If the drum buzzes more than you're used to, it might be due to those varied-tension snare wires. If that's the case, you can try a set of "plain" Pearl snare wires, like the S-022N or SN1420I. The ones you have there are the "C" style, which tend to buzz a lot.

    Perhaps I’m missing something but why would they manufacture wires that “buzz a lot”?

    I don't know exactly. I guess some drummers like tons of buzz on their snares. When you purposely solder the snare wires on at different tensions... it's going to create some noise
