Re: Are my hoops at fault?

Yes! I was looking into tension rod splay and found that it happens to either drums that were meant to have gaskets underneath the lugs, but the owner chose to remove the gaskets; that or it happens...

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

Any idea on how to fix the shell? Also, what do you mean by "the bolt circle being larger on the hoop than on the drum?"

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

Yes, I am aware of that. You may not believe this, but when I took off the tension rods, they returned to being straight, as if they were never bent like they appear in this picture.

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

I bought this snare drum a little more than a year ago off of ebay. The seller sold it to me cheap because it was in awful condition. Some of the lugs were hanging off by one screw because the other...

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

... It probably doesn't help that I play with 2 ply drum heads.

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

I know, but I already put down around $400 on this snare drum. Marching drum heads are so much more expensive. That and I don't like how big and bulky they look.

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

So you mean to tell me that there's no way for me play my snare drum with die cast hoops under my preferred amount of tension? That's a shame. I really prefer the sound of this snare drum with die...

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

Well, everyone has different preferences for their different styles of music. What may take 2 turns for you, may not work for everyone else. I'm, of coarse, saying that because I'm pretty sure I did...

Re: Are my hoops at fault?

I think I recall doing something like that when I first got them, and they were flat. Of coarse, maybe I'm remembering doing that for another hoop for another drum of mine. I really don't remember....

Are my hoops at fault?

I recently bought these used die cast hoops from what I think was an earlier model Tama Imperialstar Snare Drum, and I put them on my Rogers Dynasonic. Well, I noticed that I couldn't tighten my...

Re: What Are These Two Tones?

Actually, the tune-bot reads that pitch around the rim or at the center. The pitch that I get on the Frequency Generator is only mesured around the rim.

What Are These Two Tones?

Iíve been tuning practically all my drums with my Tune-Bot since I got it a couple of years ago. I couldnít help but notice that the Tune-Bot tunes your drums to any number of Hertz (Hz.) These...

Re: What will it take for me to be able to do this?

Actually, here in Sacramento, I think it's ridiculously hard to find a gig with a banda. I've only had two offers here in the last year. The first was to play with this guy who was trying to form a...

So, do you play to Banda or any other styles of Regional Mexican music?

Re: Wrong size tension rods?

Good news everyone! I found luck when I found the original broken lugs that I took from this snare drum. Though they were bent and broken, they too were spring loaded, and their ďfemale partsĒ were...

Now that I look at it, even I have no clue how Iíve been able to play this snare drum (for months) with these new tension rods that didnít even fit correctly. I realized that I have reason to worry...

Ok, so what size would match the size of the original tension rods from the snare drum?

Wrong size tension rods?

I originally thought that all tension rods were the same size in diameter. So, when I bought new tension rods for a 1974 Rogers Dynasonic that I was restoring, I didnít notice that the tension rods...

Re: Do you all tune your snare reso heads tighter than the batter?

On my snare, I tune the reso side pretty tight... but the batter side waaay tighter. I play with a clear remo pinstripe on the batter side, and a hazy remo ambassador on the reso side... all on a...

Re: How do you lubricate tension rods correctly?

How do you lubricate tension rods correctly?

I need to lubricate my tension rods and the inside of the lugs on my snare drum. The only thing is, I donít know how to do it without making a mess. How can I do this without making a mess?

Re: Snare Drums: Triple Flanged vs. Die Cast Hoops

I think the only die cast replacement for the Dynasonic resonant side hoop, would be those bottom hoops that they used on the Tama Kingbeat and Mastercraft Imperialstar Snare Drums back in the 80s. I...
