    Default New snare

    My girlfriend found this snare at a pawn shop. 5.5 x 14 Yamaha Concert copper MIJ snare. $140 out the door. Been wanting this size for awhile now. Can't wait to try it out. IMG_3115.jpg IMG_3118.jpg

    Beautiful snare! Always loved those lugs. Are you going to leave those concert wires on?

    Mike, I'm going to try them but will probably go to a 20 strand Pure Sound. It has an Evans Genera Dry on it now but I'm pretty sure I'm going to change that too. I like the warmth copper gives but want it to sound lively at the same time.

    Ok, I get that the copper is like a wrap, bearing edges are still wood, but why the central seam? Does the copper need that to be more rigid ( and so the wood needs to be routed to accommodate the copper)?

    Exactly what I thought. It really does look like there's a wood shell on the inside. Pretty cool
