I agree 100%...

Made in CHINA is a synonym for "peice of crap". :lol:

I have been playing for 15 years and had several snares in my tenure. I just bought this snare a few weeks ago and I love it. As long as you use a non dampened head to keep the life in it and tune it up right, it sounds great. I am recording with it as we speak and I can post a sound clip of it in the next few days.

My primary snare is a pearl piccolo 13x3 and this is my secondary snare that I find useful as a louder option that has a full body as well as an articulate crack that I have always loved ocdp drums for.

dang, everyone talking smack and i doubt anyone played it. i mean, $200 is cheap for any snare. youd figure all the people who complain about OCDP's outlandish prices would finally cut em some slack

and made in Japan? who cares? Starclassic's are made in Japan, so what's that tell ya?

heres the latest of what were recording, I am rerecording the drumming, it was merely the scratch track for the rest of the band, but it still can give you an idea of the sound. the song is very roughly compressed and barely mixed, however during the end solo you can hear it working. this is using an mxl pen mic by the way, my sm57 is being borrowed by a freind, this is what I had for the scratch track.

i wouldn't pay 200 for a real ocdp snare anyway
why does everyone always have a go at stuff made in other countries? especially Japan. But yeh i wouldnt get that i have never really heard great things about OC other than they are very expensive. As everyone always says to answer snare drum questions, forget it and get an acrolite, then go from there



i love my OC series X snare i bought from guitar center like a year ago...it sounds great and looks nice...
i got it for $150 with a SKB hardcase because i bargined with the employee at guitar center...

idc what everyone else says on here about these snares...they sound good lol

The Guitar Centers out here are horrible, especially compared to the drum store right down the street. That's why I go to GC strictly for guitars and amps and stuff lol
