@FloydZKing the snare was the main reason why I bought this stuff. She wouldn't sell separately. The stand looks like Premier, like you said.

Aside from the snare, what are you going to do with it all?

@geckobeats I'll keep the snare, the AAX, the bass drum legacy head and the Premier cymbal stand parts. Maybe I will sell the remain stuff. Any better idea?

It's a thoroughbred pedigree top shelf full on highest spec all singing and dancing beater kit. I guess if you do gigs that warrant a total lack of respect for your drums then maybe you've hit the spot.
Maybe if you're recording and the guys ask you for a really bad bonky crappy sound like a really messed up breakbeat you have the best instruments in the world for that job.
Maybe you've always wondered how much fun you could have with a Barrett .50 cal on a shooting range with a drum kit in the sights.
Ok I'm getting carried away. Yeah flog em. LOL!

How's the snare coming on? Sounding nice?

@geckobeats The snare is waiting for a cleanup. I will disassemble all the parts and clean them. I may post photos later.

It's been a while since I bought this snare but finally I got some time to clean her.

It was cleaned and polished. All parts were kept, only two missing tension rods were replaced. I know, would be nice to replace the hex bolts. Anyway, they do the job for now.

The snare wires are loose and warped. I had to tight the snare mechanism to keep them straigh and prevent buzz issues. Btw, anyone knows where I can find wires to fit this mechanism?

Gorgeous snare. The 5x14 versions weigh a lot and are very loud. Built like a tank.

This snare is the heaviest snare I ever seen.
