I just finished putting together my first custom snare drum. It’s 6.5″x14″, solid 1.2mm black nickel chrome finish brass shell with brass tube lugs, brass tension rods and maple hoops. The wood hoops on the brass shell sound great, it has a good loud crack and amazing side-stick sound. I’m totally digging it.
I call this the “Andy Andrews Custom,” I’m planning on making a few more some time soon.
