I play classic rock and blues and considering buying a vintage wooden snare that will give me that look and feel. I have a couple of metal snares. I know, to an extent that any good snare can probably get to that sound. I ran across this company on a search. Their products seem to hit the mark for me and I won't have any issues with "vintage" issues so to speak. I live in Australia and so if I went with one of their products it would be sight unseen. What are peoples experience with the Chicago Drum Co products and service? I have been in contact with them and they do ship international. Any comments appreciated.
