Re: Am I nitpicking?

Send it back. I am sure that any reputable store will make it right. You should get an equal new drum for that money, no "fix it".

Re: Copper Phonic Video Demo

I have heard a number of copper shelled drums, and copper has a nice tone. Still I think a person can get by with everything with one good maple (read wood) snare, and a good aluminum one. A good...

Bearing edges on Ludwig metal snares

I am trying to get an idea what the bearing edges are on Ludwig Supra snares. Since they are rolled flanges, are they closer to 30 degree (vintage) edges, or are they close to 45 degrees? Anyone have...

Re: Today, I came out . . .

That Tama aluminum got by me. . . But I will be happy with the Pearl. Also, I decided to stay away from any chrome over aluminum. Don't want to deal with eventual pitting. Brushed aluminum looks...

Re: Made a new marching snare

I made an adjustment on this drum. I took of the 16 strand Puresounds and added Black Swamp yellow cable snares. Now this has a really classic gut sound, with great articulation. Rudiments really pop...

Re: Made a new marching snare

I don't have a kit, I am mostly a rudimental drummer, so only have snares. Thanks for your comments! It was a lot of fun building.

Made a new marching snare

I love the sound of classic 60's, 70's marching snares for rudimental solos. I couldn't find what I liked on Ebay, so I made my own:

14x12 Keller 8 play shell with vintage edges
bubinga fade wrap...

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

I would want a P-86 on it . . . . STANDARD! (The whole Supra line should have P-86 as standard for the price they want . . . just my opinion)

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: Cast metal snares.

There are a few thicker walled metal drums that will deliver besides bell brass, such as cast aluminum. Consider N&C cast aluminum. If you are looking for sheer cut and power, don't overlook thicker...

Re: Keller thin shells for jazz and high tunings?

I have 2 snares made from the Keller Magnum shells, and they are terrific! The 5 ply Magnum is close to the regular Keller 7 ply, and the Magnum 7 ply is close to the older 10 ply (about 1/4"). More...

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...

Re: snare lugs

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...
