Re: Why do the wooden hoops on this snare have flat straight sections?

IMO, It is a tom hoop and someone cut the gates into it.

Re: Blurred lines ripped off the "feel"

That parallel strainer is very similar to the one used in TAMA King Beat snares.

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

Just to clarify: The drummer on almost all of the Carpenters' studio tracks was the great Hal Blaine.

There are many clips on a YouTube of Karen playing live in which she showed her drumming...

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

Karen was a terrific drummer! Even though she was one of the most popular female pop singers she thought of herself as a drummer first.

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried putting a gloss or semi-gloss coating on the Signet drums. I think the Ebony finish, for example, might perk up quite nicely.

I have heard them on store display...

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom 14X8 Snare drum

Even though the snare in the pic has RC style lugs I don't think it was part of the RC line. The RC snares had "box" type lugs. This may have been one of the concert series snares even though the...
