Just picked one of these up this weekend. Beautiful sounding and very sesitive snare drum. I have a Dynasonic and grabbed this one for a backup, but it rivals the sound. Check it out:

Kevin..
Yes I did see your posting.. your one looks great.. I still have not pulled mine down despite the USA "disused" cobweb inside it. Reason is, the original batter head is sitting down so nice & low to the rim... I just do not want to put on a new head & lose the angle.. It sounds just great as it is.. it is tuned real high & I have it set up next to my floor tom for some nice metalic rimshots..
Cheers
John

Nice snaredrums, aren't they? As I said above, I picked it up for a backup to my Dynasonic in case I bust a head at a gig. Now that I've been using it, I just keep on using it. It sounds great for the variety of music we're playing. I'm using it in this video. Have a listen.....
