"Your description of your inspirations and your intentions for these drums absolutely comes through when playing them. The tone, the feel, I really get it. Just honest, hard working drums. I'm a bit of a collector myself, so I do have a number of drums that break the $1K mark, and this drum easily sits in their company - if not teaches them a thing or two about modesty haha! - but It is hard to believe this drum is half that. The value is immeasurable when purchasing this drum, so it really feels like the perfect "drummer's drum". Nothing else needed, just a Beier. This drum deserves to stand with the Supras and the Black Beauties - a legendary sound for sure deserves a legendary reputation"... Jake Waldman (Independent)-Beier-1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14

"Not for the faint of heart! Thanks to James Beier for this incredible snare! It's a head ripping 7.5 x 15. No typo, a 15 inch snare. The sound is huge, sorry neighbors, but it's a good huge. Jim could not have been more helpful with assisting in this purchase. This man hand builds a truly incredible instrument and is one of the nicest guys in the business!

"I'm still messing with this Beier snare drum (1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14) trying to discover it's Achilles' Heel. I have some really nice snare drums, some sound great for a certain "thing" tension and others are more versatile. But they all have a spot where the sound suffers.
