Tama Tama Star Reseve Hammered B... $1,689.99
Tama Star Reseve Hammered Brass Snare (TBRS1455H) In keeping with the craftsmanship and quality of previous STAR Reserve snare drums, TAMA introduces another drum in the series - The STAR Reserve 14"x5.5” Hand Hammered Brass Snare Drum. This drum features a 1.5mm thick shell, 2.3mm brass Customized Flanged Hoops, and a unique hammering pattern. Upon the first hit, this visually stunning and beautiful sounding drum leaves the player with an utterly distinct and lasting impression.At 5.5” deep, the natural tone of the brass shell is accentuated, and a crisp, high-quality sound is produced due to the unique hammering technique by skilled Japanese metalworkers. Meticulously hand hammered using a larger diameter hammer at the edges of the drum and a smaller diameter hammer at the center, the drum takes on a barrel-like shape. The result is an exquisitely balanced and resonant tone that machine hammering cannot replicate. In addition, the Customized Flanged Hoops feature a slightly shaved down edge, producing a sharp and bright attack. When the remarkable hand hammered shell and Customized Flanged Hoops are combined, a rich and vibrant tone with unmistakably clear attack is realized.
Tama Star Star Reserve Hammered ... $1,689.00
Star Star Reserve Hammered Copper Snare 14 X 6.5 The STAR Drums series' first metal snare features a hand hammered copper shell. In addition to a mid-low end with tons of volume, the hand hammered shell creates a deeply harmonic overtone. A slightly smaller diameter hammer is used on the edge of the shell compared with the hammer that is used on the center, causing the shell to take a barrel shape. This unique shape provides a fat sound and rich resonance. To complement the shell, we used our original 2.3mm brass "Customized Flanged Hoop". The edge of this hoop is slightly shaved down compared to our standard flanged hoop, producing a sharper and brighter attack. The combination of these two different characteristics – warm, rich resonance with sharp, bright attack - offers a totally new and original sound, unlike any other metal snares. Model No.: TCS1465H Size: 6.5"x14" Shell Material: 1.5mm Hand Hammered Copper Hoop: Customized Brass Mighty Hoop (8 hole) Lug: MSL90SC Strainer/Butt: "Linear-Drive" Strainer & Butt (MLS50A / MLS50B) Snare Wire: Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snare Wire

Rogers Rogers Holiday 6.5 x 14 in ... $1,550.00
Rogers Holiday 6.5 x 14 in Marine White Pearl This is a real beauty and a rare wood shell 6.5 x 14. This would later became the Powertone model. This drum has Bread and Butter lugs, tall hoops and the internal damper. The drum features a Swiv-O-Matic throw off but I believe this is a later version and not original to the drum. Like most drums with Bread and Butter lugs they are very fragile and they crack over time. this drum is no different please see photos. The drum is still playable but you need to be aware of these issues when looking at any set with "B&B" lugs. Drum has Earthtone (calf) heads top and bottom but I believe a mylar snare side head will work better in this case.
