Re: What was the first concert you went to????

This is the one I envy most. In '73 Led Zep still had the fire that made them such a fantastic live act. While the Beatles might be the choice of prestige, For me Zep would have been a musically more...

Re: Vibes playing vid

Yep, there's something very attractive about vibes. An inherently musical percussion instrument.

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Thanks Neal. I think it was you that initially made me aware that these are alu hoops. Also, you were right that I wasn't getting my preferred snare sound because of it's depth rather than because of...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

Larry, that's quite a compliment for me. I've been waiting for the day that I could finally contribute something original to this forum that the rest of the gang would appreciate. I only started this...

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

I'm a repeat offender for not providing closure to the threads I start. So I'll at least try this time round.

First off, some facts.

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

Yep, I've had these concert wires on my 14x5,5 maple snare for a week now (16 strand version).

Everything you said is spot on. I'm getting a good balance between snare response and drum tone, good...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Actually, I think that you might be right. Checked the Yamaha France site and no metal snares listed. Of course the Yamaha websites haven't always been up to date and I've noticed differences between...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Well, that comes as a bit of a shock. No more metal snares? Are you sure? I still see some new Yamaha metal snares for sale here and there so I just thought they were still in production.

Re: Yamaha Drums

Does anyone know if high end Yamaha metal snares are still made in Japan, or is everything now made at their facility in China?

Excuse my ignorance, I'm just presuming that Sakae only made their...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Thanks for the feedback on the Katche snare. It certainly looks like a nice alternative to a Black Beauty.



Same here. I accept that not everyone places the same importance on taking care of...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Can any of you Yammie specialists help me save this snare I've just acquired? I's a 14x5,5 seamlees brass shell with aluminium cast hoops, model SD4105.

The patina on the shell doesn't bother me...

Re: Questions re Yamaha's tight fitting tension rods

The tightness of the tension screws on a new drum would not wear off any time soon. I currently have a Maple Custom Absolute snare which I think was made in 1998. The screws are still slightly...

Re: Questions re Yamaha's tight fitting tension rods

I've had a few Yamaha snares and they were all like this. It did bother me as well at first but I do find that they stay better in tune, even when playing lots of rim shots.

I think that Sgt...

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Be careful what you wish for Les. The change of material and reduction in mass might result in a very different sound, one you might like less than with the current S-hoops.

This is what I'm...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

That's seems to make sense. After all, a brass shell is considered warmer and darker sounding than a steel shell. Yet, on the Puresound website they say about wires that "The brass models provide a...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

I checked out those concert wires on the Puresound website. The stretched coil pattern resembles the one on a nice pair of Sonor wires I had. They might be right for me. They appear to be chromed, or...

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Thanks for the reply Andy. I was hoping you'd chime in.

What about hoop material? The Yamaha aluminium hoops are really light but don't sound more open than 2.3 flanged hoops. I read somewhere...

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

Well, you never know until you get there, but the closest I think I've got to my ideal sound is by using triple flanged hoops. The sound was still too uncontrolled, too many high frequencies,...

Has anyone been able to compare the S-Hoops with the Yamaha aluminium die cast hoops?

Both of these are meant to be soundwise in between regular die cast and triple flanged hoops. So, I'm...

The Snare Wires General Info Thread

When choosing snare wires, drummers generally talk about wire material (steel, brass, etc.) and number of strands. However, I think that there’s perhaps more to the story than just that.
