If you like it and want to fuel the industry by spending $$ on a piece of steel with some cool looking logo's on it have at it. Do you realy think JJ is using this POS on his kit? All you youngin's need to learn about marketing so you can save some money. If you really feel the need, spend your parents money on it. I'm sure when it comes out of your own pocket you'l look a little harder at what else is around that's really worth the money. OK, rant over. I feel better.


You have a point, most people would buy it because of the logo. And you're also right about him probably not playing it on his set. I've never been a fan of Jordison, I just like the way the snare sounds with the heads I have on it. It's not going to have all the tone or musicality that a maple snare has.

And when I bought it, it DID come out of my own pocket. It cost me my entire salary that I had gotten working at my friend's farm over the summer

In my experience, all wooden snares have had a MUCH wider tuning range than Steel snares.

There's some amazing sounding steel drums out there. Keplinger makes an AWESOME one.

The primary reason for my post was in regard to the numerous posts regarding the JJ snare. I"ve seen numerous multi-page post about this drum. I wish people would look around a little bit before starting a new thread. The comment I made about spending your parents money was a general comment about how many kids get there equipment. It was not directed at you specificaly. I'm glad to hear you work to get your owm stuff. I hope in the future you do some research before spend your hard earned money on something like a JJ snare when you could save some of that money by getting the same sound for less.

Alan. I should have better qualified my steel drum comment by saying CHEAP steel drum. There are some fine steel products out there. I was thinking along the lines of "You get what you pay for".

ok im sorry that was my fault for not searching for the topic before i made the thread but ive tried it out and i like the pop and the sound to it, so once i get the cash ill consider it in the list of stuff i want. but i have a wood snare right now and im thinking about keeping the wood snare and putting it off to the side for the JJ on the side. but if i can manage the $$$ situation then i think it would be a good purchase.

Pro Tip: Anything JJ related is likely to be one of the most discussed things on this forum.

You have a point there. Him or travis barker. JJ wouldn't be so bad if it wern't for all the "Maggots" who ruin his reputation.
