    8x14, 5mm shell thickness plus bell bronze hoops, Dunnett strainer and butt, chrome Pearl Masters lugs. Pics will be shared as soon as I have it all assembled. I may even take a video of the unboxing process, showing how much care John at Duluth Custom Brass takes in shipping their wares carefully.

    Being someone who has been, and is still, interested in Duluth, I'd be very interested in seeing that and the assembly process.

    Take a good look at how much padding and protection for the shell there is.

    Looks amazing! Would love to see it in some natural lighting. How does it sound?

    I can snap more pics tonight.
    And I honestly don't know. I never play a new drumhead right away. I get it up to pitch by tapping with my fingers and then let the heads stretch for a day or two...I think they sound better that way, so I'll be able to tell you later today how it sounds.

    That's a beast of a snare, man! Curious how much the box weighed with all the ply-wood... and how much just the snare weighs fully assembled?

    Shipping weight was 43 pounds. I'll weigh the actual drum tonight.
