Everyone once in a while you find those pieces of gear that sound so good you do stuff like this. Or like, if your an all sabian guy but you find that one zildjian that has THE sound. I’m a sucker for finding stuff that sounds so good it’s better than for more expensive/“better” things. Haha. Congrats!very bizarrely (to me) I bought a $140 cheap, 1978 excellent condition Premier 5x14 8 lug steel snare, updating it with an INDe throw/butt and puresound wires with REMO heads and THEN bought a Joyful noise 5.5x14 Knight Hawk Ferromanganese Steel for $1400...
comparing the two, yes the JN is SO well built but the (what I call $2 snare) Premier has such a great steel ping and vibe I kept it and returned the JN! Totally strange to and for me to do that. but glad I did, simply liked the sound better
