Re: What's your latest purchase?

Ha! I've got 7 snares too. Just last month I had 4 snares - then I found a '65 Acrolite in near mint condition for a great price - fell in love with it. Then two weeks later found a '78 Supraphonic...

I remember back in the day fifteen years ago (early 2000's) you could not purchase dw drums outside of state lines. You had to live in the same state of the dealer. Back then there was a very limited...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Well - I couldn't let my Acrolite be the only Ludwig child that I have - so I got myself a Supraphonic to go along with it. They play together nicely :)

1965 Acrolite and 1978 Supraphonic:

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I recently got a new 1965 Keystone badge Acrolite. It came with the original snare-side head and snare wires. They were both pretty beat up - so I replaced them with an Ambassador Hazy and some...

Re: Recording drums with android phone?

Put the phone in a different room, or a closet, etc, or even across the room from where you are playing. I record myself too with my Android - sometimes using an app called Voice Recorder and...

It's awesome seeing Brady respond to posts in these and other forums. I love a company that likes to mingle with their fellow drummers!

Re: New Acrolite!

Thanks - this is actually the first metal drum I've owned in a LONG time. I've been more of a wood snare guy for years - but man I love how this thing looks and more importantly sounds. Rimshots are...

Re: Finally got me an Acrolite !!

I got my Acro last week - and it pops! I'm glad I listened and read about them being something every drummer needs in their snare collection. I'll be holding on to this for a while now. Here's my...

Re: Santos rosewood - a difficult build, but -----

Wow - beautiful drums! Great job on those! One question - why did you have to wear the PPE suits when working with that wood? Is the dust poisonous?

Re: Have You Heard of Brady Drums?

Here are my Brady snares. I love these snares! The Jarrah block (14x6.5) I found on eBay for a great price and it is flawless. It came with the original heads and seemed to be barely played. Tap your...

Re: Have You Heard of Brady Drums?

Brady Drums are definitely in a league of their own. I've got a 14x6.5 Jarrah block and a 12x7 York Gum block. They both overflow with quality, craftsmanship and tone. Lots of YouTube videos of both...

Re: Stave snare head recommendations?

I've got a Brady 7x12 York Gum block snare that I bought just under a year ago. I replaced the stock head too. At first I put a coated Ambassador on it. Sounded good - but a bit 'ringy' sounding. I...

Re: Craviotto, C&C, Brady, Gretsch, Other?

Get a kit that can be easily replaced and/or fixed if something were to happen to it! Don't spend tons of money just because you can. Our church has a set of Dw Collector's series drums. Today, I...
