Re: Cast metal snares.

A couple of other snares that you might want to look at are the Pearl Ultracast, aluminum, or the Taye Vintage brass. Both snares are monsters and heavy as h3ll8^).

Re: Just browsing - cool steel snares

Taye has a couple of nice stainless steel ones as well. For some reason mine sounds better to me than the Sensitone Elite that my buddy has. It's a matter of opinion but the Tayes are a good value....

Someone asked me a question today that I could not answer.What exactly is the difference between the two? This is for a Dad who's buying his son an upgrade snare on a budget. The prices look about...

Re: Wraith vs Sledgehammer

I've used mine with Trans. Cherry Red, natural maple, medium blue and walnut sets and the sledgehammer looked and sounded great with all of them. It's a really classy looking snare and it sounds...

Re: Benny Greb Snare help!

That's definitely a join in the outer ply. It's too straight to be a crack. Also, it's under the lug. That's pretty normal.

Re: Mapex help

Judging from the tom mount I'd say that these aren't Saturns. On the Saturns the tom mount receiver is mounted on rails. The bass drum is actually virgin even though it has a tom mount on it. Mapex...

Re: Tama Starclassic B/B pros - Need your help

Maybe Tama is waxing the bearing edges on these drums. I use beeswax on mine but I don't remember seeing wax migrating to the heads.

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

To tell the truth, the name threw me off at first. Then I played one at a friend's gig and it was: "Where have you been?". It was the Patina 13x7" brass shell and it is one of the most versatile...

Re: I thought this was strange....

i'm tinkering on the brink of getting some of the Modern Vintages as well. I'm gradually being won over by Aquarian for all of my drums. I've never had to "seat" an Aquarian head. They just seem to...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

Has anyone here actually had the pleasure of playing or hearing one of these? I've yet to meet a Pork Pie snare that I didn't want for my own. I just checked at the local GC and they didn't have one...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

I've seen and played a lot of Pork Pie drums and I've never seen one with splay like that. That particular drum is definitely an anomaly. I'm sure that, if the owner wants to, Pork Pie would make...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

Pork Pie makes great dums! They've acquired a good reputation for great build quality and sound. All of the lines except for the "Lil' Squealer" are made here in the States. I've got a 13x7" Patina...

Re: I think everyone would benefit from building one. . .

I believe that's a Ludwig P-86 also known as a Millennium. It's a good replacement for the P85. I'm not sire what the center to center measurement is for the mounting screws. They're popular so you...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic 402 New or Vintage?

The po' boy's answer to this is to get some 12/24 nuts at your local hardware store and thread them onto any tension that you're having probelms with. When you get the sound where you want it just...

Re: Snare Wires

That's a Super-Sensitive so your options are severely limited. A lot of people remove the strainer and drill the shell to fit another type of strainer. You'll probably have to either shell out for a...

Re: Shell Shocked

Ludwig has often had shaky QC. I've got several Ludwigs from the same era that had to be re-cut or refinished. The late 90's were not a good time for Ludwig. My favorite maple snare is a Ludwig with...

Re: Pork Pie 14x6.5, Black over brass? Anybody?

Actually the new "Pork Rub" snare from Pork Pie has a seamless brass shell. A little more overtime and I'm going to have to rustle one of these up8^).

Re: 14x4?

If you can find one of the Pearl J.R. Robinson snares you might want to give it a swing. They're 4 x 14" maple shell, the same shell as the Masters series, with die-cast rims. I've had really good...

Re: NAMM 2015 - Saturn V - I need info! (Excited)

I think that the Mapex marketing folks might very well draw the attention of the F.T.C with this one. As I understand it, once something leaves the factory and is delivered to a retail outlet it...
