More Vintage Red Onyx Pearl
Pictures sent in (July 2010) by Anthony Falkner from Tucson, Arizona of his snare drum. Awesome job Anthony!
The “Red Onyx Pearl” wrap is over a Keller 14″ x 8″ vintage mahogany & poplar shell utilizing a rounded double 45 degree bearing edge. It has 10 brass tube lugs, brass hoops, a gold plated Dunnett R Class strainer, and Puresound Super 30 snare wires. When tapped, the bare vintage mahogany shell had an especially deep tone – the completed drum sounds like a cannon!
The wrap you (JamminSam) sent is superior quality and so easy to work with. I used the high bond tape on the piccolo snare but the other two are fully glued. Thank you so much for your help in making my summer snare building projects a complete success!
