Bubinga ...

6 x 14 bubinga snare. Vaughncraft steambent shell, single ply. New hardware .... Today's pictures are with a set of COB stickchoppers, but this will be for sale with triple flange hoops ...


6.5 x 14 Catalpa snare. Another steambent single ply shell from Vaughncraft. Wood is quite light, easy to work with and finish (tung oil on this one, my default finish ...) but also somewhat soft so care needs to be taken not to dent it. New, retro style 3 point Gibraltar throw.

Osage Orange

6 x 14 Osage Orange snare. Vaughncraft steambent single ply shell. All new hardware, including Taye style throw.

8 x 14 Maple Snare - Leedy Lugs

8 x 14. Single ply steambent maple shell, with rerings, from Vaughncraft. Edges are roundover with 45 inner (my preferred edge for this type of shell).  Red pearl wrap. Vintage Leedy lugs. Flangeless hoops and hoop clips from Drum Factory Direct. Gibraltar beer tap throw and end plate. Puresound wires, Aquarian heads. Still need to decide if I'll sell it or keep it. I'd been holding onto these lugs for some time waiting for the right shell to put them on.

UPDATE - Sold on July 2014
