Re: Free Floating Snare thoughts

Great you have settled on a winning combination.

What kind of pitch did you tune it to? My FF isn't great at a low tuning but absolutely sings at the medium to higher range.

Re: Free Floating Snare thoughts

I tried an Genera HD Dry on my own FF and didn't like it much. Sounded super dead but the standard Genera HD sounds great. Just the right amount of ring to my ears both from behind and in front of...

Re: Free Floating Snare thoughts

Yep. Tried both and ultimately preferred the 200. My other snare is a Wenge beastie that I built myself at a Tiki Drums workshop and that one has plenty of sizzle with a 300. Horses for courses :-)

Re: Free Floating Snare thoughts

I have a 6.5 deep FF with maple shell and I love it.

Many people comment that the aluminium frame on the FFs tends to dry the sound out a bit. However, I have always thought that the lack of any...

Re: Pearl Short Fuse finish type?

I believe it does. Thomann an is a German company (a little like Sweetwater in the US) who are really good at detailing specs in a most Teutonic way. However......, they call wraps "foil"

Re: Which drum should i buy ?

Lots of good advice on Cymbals so far. Particularly to buy Second Hand and the best you can afford.

If you are having trouble finding good cymbals secondhand and you are considering buying new...

Re: Recording Studio- Your drums or Their's??

Agree,

I had a similar dilemma when I recorded very informally with some friends last year. In the end I took a couple of snare drums and a stand with a double tom holder so I could have an offset...

Re: SJC Custom Kit

Agree with this 100%. I would imagine Jay Weinberg's endorsement (along with Tre Cool possibly) has had as big impact upon the brand's exposure. JW likely had his pick of the major companies when he...

Re: Desert Island Drums

Mine would also be Tool but Jambi.... or maybe Lateralus.... or possibly Forty Six & 2. Impossible to pick one.

I'll go for When The Levee Breaks!! LOL

Re: cover band song choices

Yep!

I can relate to this completely plus..... "There are 20 - 30 songs on the list so let's rattle through all of them in a 3 hour session"

I would much rather focus on spending 20 minutes on...

Re: cover band song choices

The guys I jam with also wanted me to learn this one for my first rehearsal. It's relatively simple but there are lots of subtleties that only come with time, practice and experience.

Dragging up an old thread but wanted to share a damping method I recently discovered that is super inexpensive. After watching a video by rdavidr on Youtube, I purchased a giant eraser at the weekend...

Re: ID this Mapex Snare

Looks low end to me. Horizon or older version of the low end stuff?

The strainer looks pretty inexpensive.

Re: practice pad?

This plus....

1) You get a more pronounced and cleaner noise from a practice pad IMO which makes it more suited to rudiment work.
2) There is something to be said about the resonance that you get...

Wide open spaces and fewer NIMBYs in the U. S of A.
