I got a tad carried away buying snare drums a few years ago, at one point I owned 34. I sold a bunch of them off and simplified things a bit. I fell off the wagon and bought another snare drum recently, one that I've wanted for years.
It's a brand new 6 1/2" x 14" Ludwig Black Beauty. I've owned the 5" deep version for about four years and always wanted it's big brother to join the family. This has a slightly different character than the 5", like it though.
I did put a coated Ambassador on it as soon as I opened the box.
