Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute Nouveau in Yellow Sparkle Fade...this thing is the sex. Bass is 24x18 and sounds like a punch to the heart.
Question: Black Beauty brass/brass tube lug in 5x14 or 6.5x14? It will be my first Ludwig snare purchase...
Hmmm...5 x 14 will give you a bit more "snap" due to the shorter distance between the batter and res heads. It is perhaps a bit more versatile (for jazz and delicate brush work). If you are playing more high volume stuff for rock...I would go for the 6 1/2 x 14 (which I have and LOVE). It can be a bit aggressive when I swing or get quiet...
