Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

Thanks for the info. Hoping the article will eventually find it's way online. Or perhaps a good soul will scan it and post it here?

Canopus are one of the rare manufacturers who seem to have...

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Be careful what you wish for Les. The change of material and reduction in mass might result in a very different sound, one you might like less than with the current S-hoops.

This is what I'm...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

That's seems to make sense. After all, a brass shell is considered warmer and darker sounding than a steel shell. Yet, on the Puresound website they say about wires that "The brass models provide a...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

I checked out those concert wires on the Puresound website. The stretched coil pattern resembles the one on a nice pair of Sonor wires I had. They might be right for me. They appear to be chromed, or...

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Thanks for the reply Andy. I was hoping you'd chime in.

What about hoop material? The Yamaha aluminium hoops are really light but don't sound more open than 2.3 flanged hoops. I read somewhere...

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Well, you never know until you get there, but the closest I think I've got to my ideal sound is by using triple flanged hoops. The sound was still too uncontrolled, too many high frequencies,...

S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Has anyone been able to compare the S-Hoops with the Yamaha aluminium die cast hoops?

Both of these are meant to be soundwise in between regular die cast and triple flanged hoops. So, I'm...

The Snare Wires General Info Thread

When choosing snare wires, drummers generally talk about wire material (steel, brass, etc.) and number of strands. However, I think that there’s perhaps more to the story than just that.

I gather...

Re: Need info on this Ludwig kit please...

Thanks for the info guys.

Yes, there's certainly a price mark-up here in Europe for items like these.

However, the market in France is particularly contradictory. People will put a high price...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Thanks for the info Scorch. I'm really tempted but I'd have to sell or trade another Yamaha snare to get the brass one which is risky because I've never heard it "live". There are some mycymbal...

Re: Led's Latest Page

I usually appreciate your sparse but effective, no-bull choice of words Les, but I disagree with some points, explicit and implicit, in your post.

For one, even a die-hard Bonham fan can realise...

Re: Anyone tried taking cymbal bag and snare on a plane (Ryan Air)?

Ryanair have changed their cabin baggage allowance some time in the last 6 to 8 months.
You can now carry 2 items on board. From memory, the size and weight allowed for each item basically equate to...

Re: My humble take on good drummers and OK drummers

Drivers in the UK tend to play it too safe. There's no room for improvisation. Free yourselves from the rule book I say and think outside of the box.

Down here in the south of France they all...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I see your point about prices being inflated because it's a new product. Yamaha probably don't want to undersell their product (and undervalue their brand) just because it's made in China so I can...
