    Because I canít justify spending $1247.00 for a brand new 14x6.5

    I know the used market values and I will not pay anything above what that is
    Maximum is $800 for used marketing. Just because I have a grand doesnít mean Iím gonna spend it to get this snare

    Really.. You just had to go there... Have not accepted that Maybe I don’t care about owning same snare anymore and I want to own for my own sound because it’s most versatile snare drum on market for any application and the closest comparison to a Tama bell brass without the $2000 price tag

    And FYI 4 of my favorite Drummers Play Reference Series Brass Snares.. So stop with your drama thinking I’m getting just because my favorite Drummers use it!

    The Reference Brass is a great drum. I hope you find one at a reasonable price and get a lot of enjoyment from it.

    There’s a good chance that the Reference Brass will be a keeper snare drum. A new one can be purchased for $1000. You’re willing to spend $800 for a used one. The extra $200 spread over the years is a small price for a drum that you want so badly. Also, unlike most drum equipment, the Ref Brass seems to hold its value pretty well. A new one will also come with a lifetime warranty. The new Reference lugs don’t seem to be plagued with breakage problems like the older ones, but wouldn’t it be comforting to know that if anything goes wrong, it’s covered under warranty. If you buy used and some lugs start popping, they’re $35 each.

    I wouldn't compare a Pearl Reference Brass to a Tama Bell Brass... they just aren't the same type of snare drums. If you want something close to a cast bronze snare, why don't you get a cast bronze snare? I had mine made by Oriollo (3mm, Cast Bell Bronze Shell) and had it drilled for Tama hardware... and here you have it.

    If you want to look into a completed drum, here is the Bellmaker on Oriollo's website.

    I don't care for Oriollo's strainer, that's why I asked for it to be drilled for the hardware parts I like. However, Oriollo's stainless steel lugs, and aluminum diecast hoops are REALLY NICE! You could even order it with a different strainer if you like (like DW, Trick, etc.)
