    Anyone had a chance to check these out in person? Stainless steel, 14x8.5, 12 aluminum lugs, 42 strand wires, and inexpensive.

    The two clips I’ve found sound great. In the second clip, they put on a coated head at the end of the video. For the price, might be worth experimenting with.

    I would love to add one of these snares to the arsenal... if I could find a good deal on one. I always find great deals on drums that I love so I would be hard pressed to spend $479 on this when I could buy 3 or maybe 4 great drums for that price on my gear hunts. I just bought a 5.5x24 Premier Genista Snare and a Vintage Pearl 5.5x14 D4514 (heavy steel) snare for about $203 with taxes and shipping included.

    I have LP mini timbales on my kit and love them. They have built in snares with a rotating throw. Pretty unique!
    That full snare must be nice.

    I would dare say that if the Banda snare sounds as good in person as it does on those two videos, it could be the snare drum that I've been looking for since I first started playing in the 1960s. No matter what the tuning, that snare exhibits a depth and body that I've never heard from any other snare. How can it be tuned so snappy and high, and yet still have the kind of chest and umph one would normally expect from a low-tuned wooden drum? In those two videos, it just sounds marvelous and powerful.

    I thought my drum purchasing days were long gone, but this snare will have to be investigated!

    Darn you, Ptrick!!! See what you've done?

    "$449.99 · Musicians Friend (+10 others..)"

    I thought you uncovered a steal there for a second.

    There’s one on eBay for $395. Wish I had $395.

    As much as I like my LP mini timbales & LP products in general, I don't think I would pay that much for an LP snare. I'd rather go with a Supraphonic or something like that. It does sound really nice but doesn't seem that versatile to me.

    Pretty drum and it sounds great! but $450 is a bit rich for my blood.
    Thanks for the heads up, anyway. =)
