Thunderous!!

I ordered my 8 x 14 NOB Collector's snare drum Monday night. 5 days later on Saturday at noon it arrived. Not too bad for coming from clear across the country. Sweetwater's staff was super helpful and professional. Right out of the box this thing was playable. I did tweak the top and bottom head a little bit, but that was simply for personal taste. I just love the bottom end you get from a drum this deep. Every time I hit it, it feels like the fillings in my teeth are rattling out. It's just insane. Just as you'd expect from DW, the drum is flawless and simply sounds incredible. If you're looking for an 8 inch deep brass snare, you owe it to yourself to check this one out.

Just Buy One!

Oh Baby! You want power, depth, crispness, versatility as well as serious cojones? Of course you do! It's a beast of a drum! It's a darker-toned sound as compared to a chromed steel; more like a Black Beauty. Sounds wonderful at all tunings; like a brass-shelled drum should. I favored this over a Ludwig Black Beauty after comparing the two. The Mag throw-off is truly the finest strainer I've ever used; no loose play anywhere. The threading on the tuning lugs is crazy! Be prepared to do lots of turning when changing heads! For a fat tuning, I tune the batter head to a B just below Middle C. For higher tuning I will opt for Middle C or C#. I keep my bottom head at F above Middle C, but do experiment! I forgot to mention how heavy this drum is! Beautiful Nickel finish too! Just buy one now!
