Default latest project snare

Okay, not vintage, but it will be someday, and I suspect that people that hang here will find it of interest...and I did use vintage style lugs


Duluth Cast Bronze shell build.

It looks great. It probably sounds great. But, I'd hate for it to fall
on my foot.

Thanks!
I haven't really messed with the tuning as yet, hard to do when the wife's around. In the video it's just the sound I ended up with from tightening the heads by feel. It sounds better in person than in the video (the camera emphasizes the over ring) and more or less sounds like a rifle on rim shots. I am ecstatic about the way it turned out and super satisfied. I already want to get another one to try something different (maybe a three line shell and put all Slingerland hardware on it to outdo DW).

It nestles somewhere between being a musical instrument and a work of art.

And by god it's heavy!

KO
Beautiful snare. Doesn’t have to be vintage when we look at great work like this.
Thanks for sharing
Michael

Super cool.. Can you tell us the finished weight? Many comments about it's mass but exactly how heavy is it?
