Better than expected
So I have purchased every kind of snare from brady, craviotto, black beauty, supraphonic, etc and thought I would try one of the slp line snares for fun. The price was way more than reasonable for the vintage steel so I purchased it and was immediately blown away! So blown away that I sold my black beauty and supraphonic and purchased the slp classic maple, the backbeat limited and the sonic steel! Amazing sounding drums for way less money than they should be in my opinion. I know it sounds crazy but I would put this vintage steel up against any factory black beauty snare drum any day! It's that good in my opinion! Try one of these, you won't regret it. They are beautiful, sound great and are affordable. Best of all, they are fun to acquire to get an arsenal of tone!
