Re: Kevlar snare shells?

Have not seen anything on kevlar, but I suspect that they would sound similar to acrylic.

Re: 15" snares

A search of you tube will bring up vintage Ludwig BB snares that were 15"x4" They are just incredible sounding drums, and I have been toying with the idea for some time. They seem best with a 4" or...

Re: Question about Snare Beds

Unless you are using wrap around snares, cable snares in particular, there is no extra benefit of using concert snare type beds. Standard beds should be fine. Three or four inches long (or the...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

Get a compass (for drawing) and scribe a 13 7/8" diameter circle on paper. Place the drum on i a s dead center as possible. Using a pencil, mark on the shell where the out of round area is. I would...

Re: A New Believer In Brass Shells

I have seen some drop dead gorgeous brass drums, but just can't get into it sound wise. Still love wood and aluminum for metal.

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

This is a late seventies Acrolite that I refurbished and up graded. I call it my "Supra-Acro." It has an upgraded P-33 butt plate, P-86 throw off, tube lugs, and S-hoops. I put an Evans Genera head...

Re: Which Snare Wires to Get

Generally, 16 strand is considered as the middle point. A good all around balance between drum tone and snare sound. Moving up in wires increases the snares sound side, and is generally "wetter" in...

Used Acrolite price jump?

I used to pick up Acrolites in decent shape on Ebay from $85.00 to $125.00. Today, about every 14x5 Acrolite is going from $150.00 to $225.00! I guess people have been reading this site and decided...

Re: Wood snares---woddy sound. Help

The options for metals snares are pretty manageable, but there is a forest of choices when it comes for wood! How much do you want to spend? what sound do you want? A well made ply shell should get...

Re: Solid shell snare?

Andy is right on with his advice, and I would add this: Old or vintage is also no guarantee of a good drum either. A vintage drum may be good, depending on how it has been stored, and treated in...

Re: Drums suck!

Tthis brought to mind the concept that Evans has with their Genera dry heads. There are 20 equi-distant very small vent holes around the head which help dry out the overtones.

New drum build with tack accents

I mostly like to play rudimental solos, and wanted a deeper drum with a dry sound to give a retro sound. I made this 14x6.5 snare with a 5 ply magnum shell with a very natural looking finish. It is a...

Re: Drums suck!

For some time I have also tried the "cover the vent" test to hear if there is a difference. I have done this on snare drums, snares off and on. No hearable difference to me. Ronn Dunnett did not vent...

Re: Nylon vs. Chrome Tension Rod Washers

I like black nylon/delrin washers because it not only gives a nice visual touch, it makes tuning smoother IMO.

Re: I re-cut my bearing edge today

Hey, if these simple methods work, I will try cutting some snare beds with my neighbors chain saw. Should work if I have a steady hand. . .

Re: why I wring my hands in aggrivation, but still bought . . .

The one thing about Acros and Supras with the p-85 is that regardless of what it looks like, the P-85 is one of the lowest mass and has one of the smallest foot prints on the shell available. I did a...

Re: Ludwig 400 sound test with music

Not the best recording, which is why I never rely on one clip to make a decision. Hearing one live is best. A killer drum.

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

If you want very crisp clarity, you might want to look at Puresound 16 strand concert snares. A bit drier, incredibly articulate.

You are right. This need not become a post about religion. But Christianity is about stewardship. I have Pastored a number of churches. I would be mortified to see a top end drum set (plus cymbals)...

No problem selling your time machine, they fly off of Ebay because of the huge demand. I find Ludwigs to be timeless. Just my humble opinion.
