Snare Drum Review Anybody? Satoyama-by-Hagi, rarest of the rare, 1 of 10 in existence…

Seriously, this snare drum is the sheeeet. You want a review? Write me or Dr Boo. This drum sizzles, snaps, pops…it is, quite simply, stunning in every respect. Did I mention that the shell is oak ply? Hagi made a couple of solid shell models, too. Although Hagi stewarded Yamaha drum design until his retirement a few years back,  there are no Yamaha parts on this drum. The lug casings were hand machined by Eizo Nakata (Sakae Rhythm, Osaka). The tree was harvested from an endangered stand of oak by Takashi “Hagi” Hagiwara I might review this drum given a flicker of interest….

For now, eat your hearts out…
