No I will not buy your $700 dollar snare

I'm tired of seeing highly expensive (but nice) snares everywhere that are beyond my paycheck. I'd rather invest my time and learn something new and exciting. So, with that said I've decided to build my own snare. I know the basics besides painting. At this point I think I'm gonna try first wraps because they seem less intricate. My question is how do you go about combining wraps?

Such as the ones here:





For that matter, anyone know any good manuals, websites, that explain the process?

To do stripes you have to cut the wraps perfectly straight, then you need to tape them together to form a single piece of wrap. then apply whatever adhesive and apply the wrap to the shell.

I figured it was like that, but they look so perfect it baffled me for a sec. Thanks! I'll send you a PM if I run into any questions

Of course if you are good and patient and don't get into a hurry you can use a strait edge and a utility knife. Also there are some nice little circular saws that work quite well for cutting wrap good and strait.

Of course if that doesn't work for ya, I have $400.00 snare I'll sell ya, because I feel like no wrapped shell should be more than $400.00. :mrgreen:
