Re: C&C snare drums?

C&C Drums are just awesome snare, and the best finished looking ply drums I have come across. There are great examples of some on the MDS site. The guys there are very enthusiastic about them. George...

Re: Wood snares

Unless there is a special need, I can't see the reason for anything but maple (or maple equivalent) or aluminum to cover everything.

Re: Keller thin shells for jazz and high tunings?

Re: Keller thin shells for jazz and high tunings?

The thinner shell gives a more "woody" tone and a bit lower tone. I happen to like them, except on my concert snare. Bearing edges probably play a bigger part. Standard 45 degree edges will give good...

I like something like a double ended tube lug, with a small footprint on the shell. I spreads the pull from the tension rod over a greater area. Single point lugs have all of the tension pulling in...

Re: Pearl Sensitone Elite Brass or Mapex Black Panther Maple?

Re: LM400s in unusual places!
