    Here are some photos of a kit that's being done at Summit right now. These shells look gorgeous. I can definitely see a kit in my future. Not any time soon though. The MW and this snare have gobbled up my drum budget for the time being.

    My shell has been bent and now in the drying stage. I think those are the wrong rerings as we settled on figured maple and those look like mahogany to me. I'm waiting to hear from Gary but I'm really excited to get my hands on this drum and the time is coming!

    That's shaping up to be an amazing snaredrum! Especially with the wood hoops. Are you going for a natural finish or something else?

    Thanks man. Just a light stain to bring out the reds in the mahogany. The rings in the photo are in fact not the rings going into my shell. Gary has some figured maple rings for this drum to match the aesthetic of the inbound MW. Really excited for this drum, having owned a maple Crav in the past. The pricing is a little more affordable though hahaha.

    Why the comparison, the either/or?

    Whichever one Matt chooses is the better one.

    Oriollo only makes metal shells. Really awesome and attractively priced metal shells. I have one of Vukans drums and its superb. I'll likely have him build me another some day. Gary at Summit has been super nice and accommodating and his prices are pretty unreal. The fact that he will let you use any hw you want, makes getting a steam bent drum from him really cost effective. I haven't played any of his drums yet, so my final thoughts won't come until then. I'm extremely confident that this will be a great drum though.

    Here's the shell with the maple rings glued in

    And here it is, oiled and finished. Gary likes these hoops so much, he may buy some for himself. Would be cooler if he experimented with making them himself, wink wink hahaha. The amount of weight they subtract from a drum, with metal hoops, is noticeable. As is the affect they have ok taming some overtones. Big fan and I like the aesthetic of the profiled hoops personally. Anyway, here is my 5.75x14 steam bent African Mahogany snare from Summit Drums. Hope to get it soon for a full review.

    Looks awesome Jaime! I just saw that post on the Summit page and I actually just picked up an Inde strainer and butt today for my VP signature snare. I had one a few years ago that I made the mistake of leaving on a drum that I sold and I’ve missed it since then. I’m sure that drum will sound even better than it looks which is saying a lot!

    Well my drum arrived today right before I was headed out the door to drive down to the beach to escape this heat. Its a freaking gorgeous drum and the price i paid seems unfair. I played it for about 5 mins and it sounds incredible. I'll be getting another drum from Gary soon.
