Re: First Ludwig Snare

Personally, I would go for the Puresound wires. I use them on all my snares; a Super 30 on my PDP 14 x 8, 20-strands on my 14 x 6.5 unbranded steel snare and 14 x 5.5 Pearl Decade Maple snare, and a...

Re: Second Hand Ludwig Legacy Maple

I would go for it. Ludwig Legacies are very hard to find for a reasonable price, so you may not see an opportunity like this again for a while.

Re: aluminum DW or Ludwig snare?

I have played both of these snares at my local music stores and drum shops, and I personally prefer the Ludwig. It is much more resonant at higher tunings than the DW, which, like you said, tends to...

Re: Double bass drum players

My set is a PDP Double Drive, which has two 22x18 kicks. However, I do not have the room to set up the second bass drum, that is, without buying another extension for my Pearl rack, so instead, I...

Reshaping warped Slingerland Radio King shell

Several months ago, I bought an old 13 x 9 Radio King tom shell online, and while the wood is otherwise in excellent shape (solid tone all around when rapped with knuckles, no areas of peeling), the...

Converting a Slingerland Radio King tom into a snare drum

Hey guys, I recently acquired a 13 x 9 Slingerland Radio King tom shell through a drummers' group on Facebook, and I wish to convert it into a snare drum. The drum is a three-ply maple shell with...

Re: Great Deal On Mapex Armory

That is a great deal! The drum set at my church is a Mapex Armory, and it sounds wonderful.

Re: would you guess that this is oil or lacquer

It looks to me like it is tung oil blended with some other varnish ingredient, since pure tung oil does not dry very well.

Re: Rack Toms - sizes & mounted off the kick or not?

I personally prefer to have my toms mounted on a rack or on stands so they do not sympathetically vibrate with the bass drum or vice versa. My drum set is a PDP Double Drive with 8", 10", 12", 14",...

Re: Snares won't tighten on vintage Lyra 14x9?

I would either file the holes in the hoop to make them into proper snare cord slots, or switch out the 200 resonant head for a 300. The heftier 300 head will have a better sound if you are playing...

Re: Is DW JAZZ series similar to Ludwig Legacy maples?

Great minds think alike! I couldn't help but notice the similarities when I listened to demos on YouTube, and played on some in person. It is my dream to buy two Radio King sets in the white marine...

Re: Whats the difference between PDP and DW?

The PDP Platinum series drums were quite good. I only ever owned the 14 x 5 solid maple snare, but one of my drummer buddies has the whole kit, and it is fantastic. The Platinum series is definitely...

I follow the same process for tuning my drums. I complete this process, and then measure everything with my Drum Dial so I can write down the tension levels once I get the sound I want. For my snare...

Re: Buying new snare but which one?

It sounds like my kind of snare! I am so happy to hear that you enjoy it. It is not very often that I can find a snare that still cuts at such a high tuning, so I really got lucky with my 14 x 6.5...

Re: Tom reso head for "dead" sound

Keep the Evans Hydraulic heads, and tighten the resonant heads until the sound starts to choke. I found out this trick by accident when I was playing around with the tuning configuration of my...

Re: Who else uses a marching snare with a drum set?

Update: my marching snare is DEFINITELY much louder than my other drums, it just doesn’t seem like it when I’m sitting at the kit, and the DIY insulation soundproofing job I did on the underside of...

Re: Music You Just Don't Get

Re: Should they rename the Grammys the Pro Tools awards?

Yes! Despite my young age of 22, I have a rather jaded view of contemporary pop music for that reason, and I have never watched a single Grammy Award show. My brother, on the other hand, somehow...

Re: Bass pedal toe stop

I have never liked toe stops. Luckily for me, none of the pedals I have owned came with a toe stop, but if I end up buying one that does, I will take it off before I even set it up with the kit.

I never have had to replace resonant heads, unless I am buying new drums, and I do not like the heads that are on it. As for batter heads, I buy coated, and there seems to be no established timeline...
