Re: Black beauty snare wires snapped.

Less than $20 and I have never had one break.

There is an audible difference...to the player,at least. I like Fat Cats too

Re: Outdoor Shows - Head and Humidity

I grew up in Mississippi and live in Florida. I've been soaking wet with sweat at every gig that I have ever played. :) That includes gigs all over the country.

Re: Pork Pie Big Black Snare question

I'm a big fan of Puresound Custom Pro 24s too. I have them on most of my snares.

Last month, I got a new 7x14 Tama Starclassic Brass. I left the stock snares on. I have never owned a Tama and just...

Re: hihat position: the glitch

This!!! Throne positioning and height can screw up everything else!

As long as my hats are the correct height,I can deal with small variables in the placement.

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

The no wingnuts on the stands thing is really big right now. I have watched more than one guy looking for his bottom felt/sleeves, on the side of the stage. It doesn't seem to work for everybody.

Re: 1 up, 2 down - opinion on FT sizes

I love my 14/16/18 but the 16/18 is always the trickiest interval for me. I always get the 14/16 interval on the first try. Same tension ,same amount of turns and perfect. The 16 and 18 are always...

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

I have been fighting a wall of Marshalls/ Boogies since I was a kid. I couldn't play a quiet restaurant gig with a gun to my head. :)

Re: Annoying store experience.

About 15 years ago,I was on my way home from work and stopped in a little Mom and Pop music store. On a top shelf,I spotted a natural maple Ludwig Coliseum snare. I asked if I could see it. I was...

Re: LM402 Lust

I sold both my modern 402s because of the placement of the snare butt. I got tired of having to order low collar snare resos. I had my eye on a reasonably priced 70s 402 but someone beat me to it....

Re: What kit do you use?

The snare changes pretty often. Usually, a Coliseum but I have a feeling my new 7x14 Tama Starclassic Brass will be my new workhorse.

I also have a...

I've been dialing it in. I experimented with hoops and heads. I tried an S-Hoop and a triple flange but ended up sticking with the stock die cast. I tried a few heads but stuck with my Coated CS...

Re: Lazy Guitarists...

I can't believe your vocalist hasn't put an end to that tuning issue. Nothing like singing a tune in a different tuning everyday.

Re: I can't believe I did this...


It came stock with a Coated G1 and Hazy 300. Tuned up super easy. Sounded good with no muffling. The reso had a pinhole. So, Sam Ash gave a new Hazy Ambassador to replace it. While I was...

Re: I must be an anachronism

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

I will admit that all my bad nylon tip experiences were decades ago. The tips wouldn't make it through a single night. I hadn't bought a pair since the 80s,until a few months ago. The local drum...
