Re: 15" snares

To me that's the only real issue with 15" snares; head choices.

If you like fairly straightforward one or two-ply coated heads you have pretty much unlimited options, but many specialty snare...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic -50th year edition

I'm not in the market for one, but I think that's a nice badge, and I'm glad to see them celebrate the milestone.

Re: How do you measure a snare for a snare bag?

Bags are sized by the drum they're intended to fit over, so you buy based on the shell size, not the actual overall dimensions.

Re: Ludwig Brass Supra

Street price on a new COB is a little over $600, and if you can find a B-stock those run about $500, so I think $400 for a used COB is good if it's in nice condition.

Ludwig snares have taken off...

Re: tama superstar classics? maple?

So they're essentially maple Silverstar with the old lugs and badges.

I guess Mapex Armory and Gretsch Catalina are getting too much of the intermediate market.

I like Tama's drums a lot and...

Re: Ludwig B stock

I think it's up to the individual dealers if they want to purchase any B stock gear to sell.

I can't recall ever seeing any of the Asian-made stuff available as B stock, probably because what...

Re: Pearl Sensitone phosphor bronze snares available again

I think that's what has led many companies, including Pearl, to scale back/discontinue a lot of their snare lines; the fear that rising costs would be off-putting. That's they're back again shows...

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

I think it depends a bit on if you like/want a wood or metal snare tone.

In a lot of ways they're pretty similar; 8 lugs, basic "functional" side-throw strainer, 14x5" size...everything but the...

Re: Ludwig purchasing rant.

Another vote for Interstate Music. I've bought a lot of Ludwig heads from them and I know they have the snare wires too. If the other stuff isn't listed on their site, just call them. They're...

Re: Old and new

Asking another musician about what or who inspired them is a really common question, but asking them who inspires them currently is just as (if not even more) valid. Putting a specific name into the...

Re: "Restoring" my old snare.

I have them on all of my drums and bass drum claws now and I really noticed a difference in the smoothness when tuning.

Re: "Restoring" my old snare.

Most any good metal polish should clean up the lugs and hardware just fine.

DW tension rods have a different thread pitch and will not fit into the inserts of any other maker. If you really...

Re: Club Date SE or Signet?

If I could get a USA-made Ludwig kit, in a finish and price I liked, I'd stop wondering right there and just do it.

The new Club Date kits seem nice "for what they are" but glancing at a kit in my...

Re: looking for new metal snare.

All of the Pearl Sensitone drums are nice, as are Ludwig Acrolites. The Supralites are another solid choice if you want some size options. I prefer deeper drums, and the Supralite is available in...

Re: Irony?

Pearl seems a little more guilty than most of releasing "signature" snares that bear only a passing resemblance to the drum that artist actually uses. The Joey Jordison, Chad Smith, and Morgan Rose...

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

Ludwig did (and still does) keep all of their older hardware available for special orders, so while the Modular mount was the most common, they'd build a kit with the Classic mount if asked. That's...

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

If it's an '89 kit (and I don't see anything that makes me think otherwise) then they'ed either be 6 ply Classic maple/poplar shells or 4 ply Super Classic maple/poplar shells.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

If you want something versatile and American made is a consideration I'd suggest Ludwig Classic Maple.

However, I'd suggest holding off until you actually get started at school. Spending over...

Re: Looking for solid value kit on a $1500-$1700 budget.

Gotcha!

I'd look at a solid mid-level kit (Mapex Meridian/Tama Silverstar/Yamaha Stage Custom) to free up some room in the budget for better quality cymbals.

At least the markup in drum...

Re: Looking for solid value kit on a $1500-$1700 budget.

I agree; the 3rd and 4th kits are insanely priced. The Mars Pro was probably $700 new, and the Meridian Maple kits are getting blown out for about $600 brand new right now.

If truly looking at a...
