Get in line

Here's another hand made snare drum. It's a maple and walnut affair. 

There's pimpy brass hardware and a super fancy gold plated snare strainer, otherwise known as a throw-off. I don't like the word "throw-off." It sounds so crass. Not to mention that it isn't fitting of an instrument I would hope no one would throw anywhere. Do you like lots of double negatives?

This drum is not a negative. It sounds great. Nice high pitched, tight maple sound. Lovely overtones. I cut kinda deep snare beds for this one and haven't experienced any tuning issues.

Thanks for viewing! Y'all come back now, y'hear?
