The Oriollo 65 Bakar has exceeded my expectations. This drum is dark and meaty, but still so explosive and crisp. This results in a very well balanced drum across the frequency spectrum that is versatile and can do anything.
It records beautifully at all tunings and will be a valuable addition to my collection along side its aluminum brothers.This will easily be my go to recording snare. Read the full review
Being a fan of fat and focused backbeats, I fell in love with the Bakar at once. Classic sounds come out of this snare whenever you try a different tuning. The lack of overtones really helps the player find a sweetspot in any tonality with minimal (or no) use of muffling. The Bakar delivers cracking rimshots in an old-school vibe due to its dark sounding copper shell. That doesn' t mean that it lacks volume though. It's hard to think of any musical application that this snare wouldn't shine.
