    Default Noble & Cooley snare help.

    Are all Noble & Cooley snares high end? I know they make super high end but what's their low end price range?

    The reason I ask is I found a guy that's selling cheap 3 piece off brand kit but it includes A Custom hats and 2 A Custom crashes. A Zilbell a Z Custom ride and Z custom China. +++++

    Plus a Noble & Cooley ( what he calls Alloy Cast)
    Snare with hard shell case.

    I couldn't find info on Alloy Cast snare but did on Alloy Classic.

    Before you say "a picture will help! "

    I messaged him and I'm waiting. But the asking price is below the price of a used Alloy Classic !

    Hope he sends pics!

    With more research I see they are PDP drums actually. Tama Iron Cobra double pedal and hi hat stand. SKB hard shell case. Hopefully I can go see these tomorrow!

    I'm going to look at them this morning. Any help on the N&C snare line would be appreciated!

    I don’t know of N&C making anything that’s not of professional grade.

    I read on another drum forum that N&C may not be casting their own aluminum shells anymore... but that doesn't mean that the quality is down. Regardless, they are generally high-end instruments that take a little getting used to. The snare wires are really nice, but different than others you're likely used to. See if the Alloy Classic badge looks like this... if it does, you have a good one.

    Note how the snare wires attach... different.

    Yep... that's a nice one. It has the N&C diecast hoops, and black powder coated hardware. The size should be 4.75x14. Mine is the 6x14, with chrome hardware.

    Thanks for the proper sizing info. With out measuring I was guessing 5" depth.

    What did it end up costing you?
