Sounded awesome, nice and heavy drum. loved the concept, however once I tried a few different heads on it and torked the heads down tight the lugs all started breaking and popping away from the shell. I had it for about 3 days, and it had somewhere between 9-12 lugs that snapped off the shell.

Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion 25-Ply Maple Vented Snare Drum:

I've been looking for a nice solid wood snare for a reasonable price and I happened to read about this OCDP snare in a Moddern Drummer article, which had some good feedback so I thought i'd give it a try. I was blown away. Snare had a nice crisp sound with plenty of crack, super loud with the dual 1" vents, and ultra heavy duty 25 ply maple shell with some sweet heavy duty hardware. All I have to say is great job OCDP for making a great affordable production snare, I would highly recommend this snare for drummers at all levels.

I just bought it today. Tank of a snare!! Extremely LOUD!!!! Great response, and tunes up high without much strain on the top head. Looks even better than the photo!!! Rest assured, bang for your buck, and gives top of the line snares a run for their money!!

    Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion 25-Ply Maple Vented Snare Drum:

    The drum sounds fantastic. The lugs are junk though. I noticed a week after purchasing that a few of the screws that attach the lugs to the shell were coming loose or had already completely come off. I decided to tighten them. After trying to tighten them I had found that the lugs were stripped. I honestly believe they got stripped during the manufacturing process. This was a huge disappointment because I had to order new lugs. Since I have put the new lugs on everything has been smooth and sounding good.

        Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion 25-Ply Maple Vented Snare Drum:

        During my more than a decade of drumming, with various bands, recordings, and projects, I have always admired and coveted some of the great sounds that my favorite drummers have gotten on recordings and in concert. My all-time favorite drummer, Cyrus Bolooki of New Found Glory, played with OCDP for more than a decade and now I own two different kits from them and love them both. The unique 25 ply, two 1 inch vents, and 14x7 configuration gives this snare a lot of character and bang for the buck without sacrificing responsiveness. FANTASTIC DRUM!

              Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion 25-Ply Maple Vented Snare Drum:

              So this is the only draw back I have, you gotta have tighten up some of the lug screws inside the shell. Once everything is tight and you tune up, it sound pretty good out of the box. If you want a different sound change the head, I have a Remo control sound on mine. The drum is versatile it's nice when tuned low, gets better in the Medium range, but the sweet spot is the high-medium high range. The 25-ply shell creates a huge crack which is great for gospel music. But at the end of the day it's an all around great drum especially for the price point. You can't get a 25-ply Shell cheaper than this.

                  I played all of the snares at Guitar Center, new and used. I brought my toughest critic (wife), and had her blind listen. She picked this one after I spent an hour picking it too. It is very sensitive, great sound, great depth. It is HEAVY!!! Cast hoops are a nice feature as well. I highly recommend coated heads. The clear heads ring like crazy.
