Re: Any thoughts on Ludwig Supralite steel snare?

Which size are you considering? I put a 6.5 x 14" up against a Taye stainless steel and Pearl Sensitone Elite. The ludwig definitely held it's own but I ended up selling it because the Taye and Pearl...

Re: Mapex bp nomad or dw collectors nob

Both are great drums but, as always, try to find a store that has either/both and listen to drums at different tunings and such. If you've already done so then it comes down to price/performance. For...

Re: New Drums

Hit as many music stores as you can and play as many kits as they'll let you. Anything else is just second hand. Try different sticks, tunings, heads, etc.. Most people don't buy cars off of the web...

Re: Oh No, Not another Bearing Edge.

Having disowned a cousin for some of his well paying legal high jinks I would strongly suggest getting some sort of patent on this. The engineer who invented interval wipers died before his family...

Re: I'm sorry if I've let anyone down

Talk about vintage! I wonder what kind of bearing edges they used.

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

For D.C. only. Andy, I "listen" to everything that you and Motley say. Why is thinner better with copper?

Re: 1974 Tama Royalstar Snare Question

I bought a RoyalStar kit about the same time and the snare is great! It's a really heavy steel shelled snare. It's the heaviest steel snare that I've ever had. It does have a great fat sound with...

Re: Cast metal snares.

A couple of other snares that you might want to look at are the Pearl Ultracast, aluminum, or the Taye Vintage brass. Both snares are monsters and heavy as h3ll8^).

Re: Just browsing - cool steel snares

Taye has a couple of nice stainless steel ones as well. For some reason mine sounds better to me than the Sensitone Elite that my buddy has. It's a matter of opinion but the Tayes are a good value....

Difference between Mapex Meridian + MPX

Re: Wraith vs Sledgehammer

I've used mine with Trans. Cherry Red, natural maple, medium blue and walnut sets and the sledgehammer looked and sounded great with all of them. It's a really classy looking snare and it sounds...

Re: Benny Greb Snare help!

That's definitely a join in the outer ply. It's too straight to be a crack. Also, it's under the lug. That's pretty normal.

Re: Mapex help

Judging from the tom mount I'd say that these aren't Saturns. On the Saturns the tom mount receiver is mounted on rails. The bass drum is actually virgin even though it has a tom mount on it. Mapex...

Re: Tama Starclassic B/B pros - Need your help

Maybe Tama is waxing the bearing edges on these drums. I use beeswax on mine but I don't remember seeing wax migrating to the heads.

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

To tell the truth, the name threw me off at first. Then I played one at a friend's gig and it was: "Where have you been?". It was the Patina 13x7" brass shell and it is one of the most versatile...

Re: I thought this was strange....

i'm tinkering on the brink of getting some of the Modern Vintages as well. I'm gradually being won over by Aquarian for all of my drums. I've never had to "seat" an Aquarian head. They just seem to...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

Has anyone here actually had the pleasure of playing or hearing one of these? I've yet to meet a Pork Pie snare that I didn't want for my own. I just checked at the local GC and they didn't have one...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

I've seen and played a lot of Pork Pie drums and I've never seen one with splay like that. That particular drum is definitely an anomaly. I'm sure that, if the owner wants to, Pork Pie would make...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

Pork Pie makes great dums! They've acquired a good reputation for great build quality and sound. All of the lines except for the "Lil' Squealer" are made here in the States. I've got a 13x7" Patina...

I believe that's a Ludwig P-86 also known as a Millennium. It's a good replacement for the P85. I'm not sire what the center to center measurement is for the mounting screws. They're popular so you...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic 402 New or Vintage?

The po' boy's answer to this is to get some 12/24 nuts at your local hardware store and thread them onto any tension that you're having probelms with. When you get the sound where you want it just...

Re: Snare Wires

That's a Super-Sensitive so your options are severely limited. A lot of people remove the strainer and drill the shell to fit another type of strainer. You'll probably have to either shell out for a...
