Covid-19 Snare drum

During the lockdown, I decided to make my own snare drum!

After 3 weeks, I finally finished it on May 5th. 

The gold rims will be delivered once they are back in stock, so I put some chrome ones on just to see how it sounded.

As its a 14x5 snare, I knew it would be a short high pitched sound, but I was shocked to hear it had a very warm sound to it and certainly not a sound that kills your ears.

So after 3 coats of tung oil, 3 coats of wax, a few dodgy drilling moments, it was finally finished and I am very happy with how it looks and sounds.
