Danny Carey Signature Snare From Sonor Drums

I recently got to visit Sonor Drum in Virginia and I had a chance to check out the new Danny Carey Signature Series Snare.

As I approached this thing, not only was I amazed by the Bronze shell that just popped at me, but the size was perfect! 14X8!! This thing is a monster and has a sound to back it up.

I personally have always preferred wood snares... but after tuning this thing and hitting it quite a few times, I am absolutely sold on this! I went through numerous tuning and tensioning steps to check the tuning range of this thing. I was amazed with the variations I got off this thing.. from a DEEP tone to a high cracking pop.

Not too mention it is one of the best looking snares I have seen with all the engravings and the engraved Danny Carey signature.

Can't wait to get one of these back to the studio and test some different heads on it!!
