Snare Drums Past and Present

I’m trying to create a unified location for some snare drum pics (instead of scattered all over Facebook and eBay) so let’s see if this works.  First, the queen of my snares, the 6.5 x 14 hammered bronze (I traded a Black Beauty for this one).  I’ve added brass tube lugs and brass plated rims to this drum.  I’ll link a video also…

I demo a few snares in the video below:

Here is a 60’s super sensitive Ludalloy snare; and it really is super sensitive…


Here’s a Chrome over Brass snare with tube lugs (demo in first video above):


And here’s a Ludalloy marching snare converted to P85 throwoff (also demo-ed above):


I’ve got a Black Beauty back in the stable again, this time a 3×13:

And here’s the video demo of it:
