Awesome Snare

I have had this drum for about two months now and have found it to be pretty much exactly as Nick describes in the video. I special ordered mine because I wanted it with the black nickel hardware (totally worth the upgrade), but the one thing I was disappointed about was the tiny heart inlay. When I got my drum, it did not have the heart. I hit up Joe at DW because I had just been there visiting the day before my drum arrived. He informed me that they have had several inquiries about the heart, and it turns out that you have to specifically request it when ordering. It's a bummer, because it's a pretty neat feature, but not a big deal in the long run. Super happy with this drum.
