Re: Looking for great maple snare for studio. Rock, pop, country.

I've turned into one of those crazy forum people who reply to their own posts! :) Ok so we did some recording, the Gretsch was beautiful, the Pearl was horrible. Just to many funky overtones, to hard...

Looking for great maple snare for studio. Rock, pop, country.

I have a 14x6.5 Black Beauty that I've had for years and love. I tracked this guy other day and he had some old Ludwig maple and it sounded great. What's a good versatile maple snare?

Re: Yamaha Oaks

It's finally done. It took months to get a new front kick head. Yami stopped making them, seems like your name on the kick would be the last thing you discontinue.

Re: Black Beauty, 5x14 or 6.5x14?

We shot out numerous snares for a session last week and my 6.5" BB was the winner. Just a perfect snare drum.

Re: Looking to get a snare for modern rock.

I've had both the 402 and BB for a month now, plus we have a bunch of other snares and drummers bring in snares for sessions, so far the BB is consistently my favorite snare. Yesterday's session was...

Re: Drum size question.

Is there enough of a difference between a 12 and a 13?

Drum size question.

If you had a kit with 3 toms a 13, 16, 18 and you wanted to add a high tom would you go 10" or 12" if those were your options?
