I recently broke my snare drum and am in the market for a new one. I was curious to know if anyone is aware of what kind of snare Abe Cunningham from the Deftones uses. I love the sound of his snare but I dont know if it would fit with a Gretsch Catalina kit. I believe it would but any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

I concur.

Sounds likle the Bell Brass Warlord at that price, the only snare Tama WON'T give to a full endorser.

They do sound incredible.

How the hell did you break one though?
