    Nice. I love those lugs too! Convenient for quick head changes. I used to have a Yamaha custom maple and it was my favorite snare for years.

    WOW, that is stunning. I had that exact kit in white and the snare was phenomenal

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing

    Stunning doesn't cover it. That is a work of art. How does it sound?

    Nice to know I'm in good company. A little late to the game but I made it.

    Thunderstruck, to be honest I don't like the way it sounds. It might be the control dot head. The snare is dry and dead. Got some new heads on the way.

    More to come.

    Yeah being a hybrid snare and having those die cast hoops I had the same issue. I remember trying a few heads before finally going to old faithful (amb. Coated) and WOW she woke up big time.

    That's what I'm hoping for, too.

    Head swap last night. First time encountering that style of lug. 0 love. lol

    However the head swap made a huge difference in the tone quality. For the better I might add.

    Much better with a single ply coated head.

    It is amazing the difference in sound that snare has with a 2ply vs single ply head. I have had other snares with a small difference you can tell but that snare i remember standing out because it was such a big change for the better. Congrats and enjoy bud!

    Since I have the maple custom absolute and the recording customs, I will agree those are two kits to own and enjoy. I'm about to add a third back to the herd. Oak Customs. Should have them later this week. (Teaser: It matches the snare)
