once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

I acquired this Gretsch Cocktail set a few years ago. The "bass drum" has the snare apparatus under the top head. But, that type of "snare" drum sound is more anemic than a cajon with rattles on it. So, I bought a little popcorn snare that I rewrapped in a piece of matching wrap that a friend stripped off of an old bass drum. This little outfit is comfortable to play while either sitting or standing.
