Overview

The insides of Orange County's drums are hand-sanded and then sealed to a satin finish. The edges always have a ply of flatness for a true sound and for maximum resonance. The edges are also sanded smooth for a very finished feel. All of OCDP's logo badges are engraved aluminum for a custom look.

Offset lugs
The lugs are made from an aluminum/zinc alloy that is far stronger than the zinc #3 that virtually all other drum lugs are made of.

Offset lugs are lugs that are not directly in line with each other and they are staggered either 50% or 7/8". This does nothing for the sound of the drum, but it gives the drum a more custom look which some people prefer.

Die Cast hoops
These hoops are a thicker-style hoop than the standard 2.3mm hoops used on the toms. They are used on the thicker ply snare drums and the vented drums as these tend to have a lot of ring and the die-cast hoops will help control this.

Trick Throw Off
The Trick throw-off has become the industry standard for throw-offs and is one of the strongest throws off on the market.

This Orange County 7x13 Natural Ash Maple Snare has one of the loudest snare cracks out there. I also own a Pearl Masters 6.5x14 All Maple Shell Snare and this Orange County sound so much deeper, tighter, and louder. When I play live with this snare, its the first thing that everyone notices. Perfect for small church playing, concert playing and recording. I've personally heard the Ludwig Black Beauty Snare and still i love this Orange County so much better. Plus, the aluminum/zinc alloy on this snare makes for an ear popping rim shot. The other thing I'm very impressed with is the trick throw-off. Never have I felt such a smooth and easy to adjust throw-off. I haven't found one negative thing about this snare. I'm hoping I won't ever, because this snare so far has been very reliable. And all this not to mention on how beautiful the snare looks. The craftsmanship is genius and this snare isn't too heavy or too light. If you're looking for some of the tightest and loudest snare playing, the Orange County 7x13 Natural Ash Snare is the best out there.

Don't get me wrong this is a beautiful snare drum, BUT it lacks one thing. BODY. I am currently using this as a side snare for a "reggae" sounding snare. But it doesn't even come close to sounding as good to my Pork Pie Vented Maple snare. But I got this for a good deal so i'm not complaining. Overall it's a descent buy if you looking for a cost efficient snare to add to your kit.

Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Maple Snare:

This is a review for the 7x13 maple snare. I am waiting on the 4th drum to come in. The 1st drum had scratches (they were straight made by a tool)underneath the clear finish and one of the lugs the finish was rubbed off. 2nd drum the bearing edge had dips in it. The finish was the same way had straight scratches in it. When I tuned it, every other lug the pitch was high, low, high, low. 3rd drum was the cleanest, bearing edges were ok. But there is a good size drip in the clear coat. Now I am waiting for the 4th drum to see if it is any better, if not I will keep the 3rd drum. After all of this I am going to keep one of the drums because it is a good sounding drum. OCDP hopefully this is just a bad batch. Please work on your fit and finish of your drums, you do make good drums with good features at a good price point!

    Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Maple Snare:

    I originally bought this snare because I moved to Australia to go to school for music, and my 8x14 13ply G-maple Starclassic was too big and heavy. After changing out the heads and replacing the snares with pure sounds, I fell in love with this snare. Nice crack to it, good body tones, and she's beaut. For the price, you can't really beat this snare. The only major problem I had with this at first, is that the snare throw 's screws mount horizontally to each other, rather than vertically. This means that the snare throw will flex down when armed, making me have to constantly adjust the snare tension.

    I eventually did a little tightening of the screws to make it flex less, which worked for a good 3-4 months. However, just recently while practicing, one of the screws holding the throw snapped, rendering it useless. I am not able to get the other half out of the throw, so there is little to no hope of fixing that.

    I did send a part replacement form to OCDP. I will update this when I get a response from them.

    Would I recommend this to someone? Probably. She's pretty, she sounds incredible, she's affordable. BUT! OCDP needs to work on the hardware quality, despite it looking fancy and fine.

        Quality & Cost Advantage

        Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Maple Snare:

        I admit I bought this snare as an impulse buy. I choose the 14"x 6" natural finished. For the purposes of this review we will assume the other offering are matched in quality. The look of the snare was appealing, but we all know looks can be deceiving. I wanted a low cost snare to carry around anywhere I might want to go and not be overly concerned about it's care. Well, on a cost vs quality scale this snare is a winner. Looks great, sounds very good, and not at all expensive. Of course the heads and snare strainer are mid-range quality, but those will be replace over time just like tires on a car. The point is this. If you are cost particular and want a great snare drum to add to everything you have already accumulated, you will probably be completely satisfied with this purchase.

        i tuned this up and all i got was a flat, dead, and not good sounding drum. the guy at guitar center tuned it up and it still sounded bad. lots of other drums that were cheaper even sounded better. i think i got one of the drums that did not meet quality control, or i have a untunable drum

        Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Maple Snare:

        After a long battle on which snare to get to add to my collection, I decided on the 13x7 maple. I tried each snare in this price range in the store and the tone and punch of this snare just caught my attention and I knew it was the one. I do not regret it one bit and I plan to use it for years to come. I strongly suggest you go try out this drum in person and decide for yourself,

        By Isaac Stegman

        from Eldridge, Iowa

        Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Maple Snare:

        I bought the black burst maple snare. It sounds great! You can tune it up to a crisp snap or to a warm sound. The rim is perfect for rim shots. This snare is excellent for its price. I also played around with the 13" maple snare and I love it! It sounds great when doing rolls on it. It doesn't make a ringing sound like some snares. It sounds flawless. I bought the 14" black burst because I needed a replacement for my other 14" snare that I've wanted to replace for a long time. This was worth every penny and more!

        Found It!

        By Luke Sides

        from Birmingham, AL

        Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Maple Snare:

        This is the exact sound I was looking for. I didn't realize how much I'd been missing with my previous snare. The depth is rich, the tone is beautiful, and the pop (or crack) is amazing. Ghost notes, accents, rolls all sound great, and no matter where you play on it, even the rim, the sound is so pure. Rim shots are amazing as well. However, I play rock, so not sure if the jazz players out there would appreciate it as much. Oh and finally, the price is great for a sound so good. 5 stars!
