Well, ever since I got introduced to Pantheon and knew all the options that I could get, I have been dreaming up snares that I want. Here is a list of them.
Walnut Stave 14×4.5. With wood hoops, tube lugs, 42 strand snare wires, trick multi step throw off, DW 3 position butt plate, in either brass or chrome depending on which looks better. Aquarian Mordern Vintage II for batter and Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 for Snare side! This is inspired by Stanton Moore’s snare!
Birch One Ply solid shell 13×5.75. With wood hoops, 50% staggered lugs, 6 lugs on each side only, 14 strand snare wires, any throw off will do, DW 3 position butt plate, in either chrome or brass depending on which looks better. Aquarian Modern Vintage II on top and Evans Hazy snare side on the bottom. Inspired by Benny Greb and Akira Jimbo’s snare.
Aluminium anosidised into Red 13×5.5. With die cast hoops, ego lugs, 14 strand snare wires, any throw off will do, DW 3 position butt plate in black nickel. Tension rods be brass to add a little ‘gold’ into the drum. Dubbed “The Fire cracker!” With ASPR red synthetic leather head on top with Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 on the bottom. Inspired by drums on Pantheon!
Steambent Mahogany 15×8. With wood hoops, any lugs really, any snare wires, DW MAG throw off and butt plate, in brass or chrome! Bearing edge be Baseball bat type! Aquarian Deep Vintage on top and Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 on bottom. Inspired by Pantheon.
Steambent Maple in either 14×6.5 or 14×7! With die cast hoops or 4.3mm no flange hoops, Slingerland single ended beaver tail lugs, 20 strand Canopus snare wires, DW MAG throw off and butt plate, in either brass or chrome. Probably be Aquarian Modern Vintage II on top and Evans Hazy Snare Side 30o on the bottom. Inspired by the legendary Slingerland Radio King snare that was revered by so many people!
Beaded black nickel brass in either, 14×6.5, 14×8 or 13×6.5. With die cast hoops, Tube lugs, most probably 20 strand, Dunnet throw off and DW 3 position butt plate, in either chrome, black nickel or brass! Evans Hydraulic Black or Aquarian Morden Vintage II on top, Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 on the bottom. Inspired by the legendary Ludwig Black Beauty.
6 ply Vintage Mahogany(mahogany and poplar) 15×12. With either die cast or wood hoops, any lugs will do, DW MAG throw off and butt plate, in whatever colour that looks good. It will be fitted on with floor Tom legs so it doesn’t need a snare stand! Aquarian Deep Vintage with Evans Hazy snare side 300. Inspired by a video I watched online.
Another idea is like have mismatched lugs 6 lugs on top and 8 lugs below.
Maybe one day if Swee Lee does bring in Chad Smith’s limited edition snare I would go for it? Both the red one and the free floater looks really good!
Well, I will never get so rich as to buy everything! Haha I don’t even have money to buy one now! So yeah! These are just ideas! One day! 🙂
