Re: Unix Drums out of business/moved?

Francois is still very much alive... He moved his shop and there was a major delay in getting his rather large lathe moved to the new shop. No lathe = no drums.

The lathe is back in the shop and...

Re: Fantastic find! Custom Classic Kit Review

Best? Nah... not even close. The best kit I will ever own will be of my own design. Built by my own hands and the lightest kit on the planet. One of these days I will own my own magnesium alloy kit. ...

Re: Fantastic find! Custom Classic Kit Review

Flam: Coating the inside with tung oil isn't going to do anything for you... Especially not "warming" up the sound. Just so you know... Plus the easiest way to round down edges would be to glue some...

Re: Unix Stave Snare Drums

Ummm the title says it all.

Pretty much the best drums money can buy. He's doing segment drums now as well. Unlike most other companies Francois starts with the raw...

Re: Full stave kit progress

Edrums: The glue is the strongest part of the shell... You don't need to put any grooves, etc in it for strength. I've built a number of Francois shells into drums here in NC where it's not all that...

Re: Extremely Articulate Snare For Low-volume Jazz

Ah... but shallow is also louder... so it's a bit of a trade off finding that happy middle. The Supras are great because aluminum tends to have a dry crisp sound to it. That's where you get your...

Re: Black Beauty Snares vs. Knock-Offs

The worldmax ones aren't bad... they're no black beauty but they're in the ballpark sonic wise. I'm assuming you're talking about Drum Foundry when it comes to the titanium shells. Personally I still...

Re: SJC

Haha.. don't think so. He's just one of the best I've seen at working with exotic veneers, etc. He's got some stuff posted over at ghosnote and various other forums.

You should see the veneer work on the Raven Custom Drums... Plus he's a first class fella down in FL.

I'll give you this as a reference but I hope you don't come over and just start spouting all that Spaun crap (nearly every post you've made mentions them...)

Re: New Snare Drum?

Cherry would be a good choice as well for subtle warm tone without being quite as dry... It's one of my favorite choices in woods to build frum.

As for your other question... Aside from them being...

Re: New Snare Drum?

Walnut is a VERY dry sounding wood... just so you know. And I doubt you'll find a non-boutique snare made from it.

Black Beauty: can never go wrong

Dunnett: I won't comment

Re: Tama Dw Sonor Or Pearl!!

Consider getting something truly extraordinary... Even SQ2's can't hold a candle to some of the stuff you can find out there. =) (And SQ2's are friggen nice)

Re: Getting a really resonant snare

Use thinner hoops... Single flange with claws will open it up for sure.

Re: Speaking of Staves.. (Sound file inside!)

Now that I dunno... All I know is it convinced me that my next personal set will be made of blocks of wood worked by some crazy french canadian dude.

Ok... Francois just sent me this file and I had to share. Listen to these babies sing. That snare sound is just soooo amazing.

You guys are overlooking a key component in truly custom and small shops... The mojo.
