Default Re: Kent Stubby Snare 4 1/4" X 14"

That's great - Thanks for the tip. Cool site too. I think I have enough leather for a couple of kits left over - LOL!!!

BTW... the drum sounds pretty good as is. With the leather gaskets/spacers, I was able to get some tension on the heads with the existing tension rods. I'm waiting on shorter rods, but for now I can use the drum and continue to experiment with snare bed depth. Originally, I cut very shallow beds (almost non existent). Wasn't happy with the sound, so I cut them deeper when I took the lugs off to add the spacers. Sounds 110% better.
