Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

To be fair the 6.5 is a different design, reverse center bead and more, heavier lugs attached in different areas than the 5.5/others. The 6.5 is the only drum in that genus with a reverse bead.

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

Under $200 US? Quite possibly the best deal on a new brass snare drum ever.


I prefer 1mm with brass... add 8 lugs, 5.5" depth and dual adjustable strainer= world-beating.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

... also GURU gets 5 stars on the lug splay.

Builders, manufactures take note, tube lugs with no splay.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Wow, 10, 11 and 12mm thick!?

My 10 mm bass drum lacks usable depth/bottom, but its ply.

What percent in net weight gain compared to ORIGIN, IN-TENSE?

Re: Metronome app that speeds up and then slows down

Speeds up and then slows down? Just listen to the guitar player before and after the solo.

Re: Tigerwood - Grrrrrrrrr :)

My favorite wire style, less sympathetic buzz, better buzz from head contact IMO.

Can experiment on you own, center cut out any 20 strand, get an idea.

Re: 1980's Gretsch USA Custom

Mint condition includes bottom head hardware (in mint condition) correct?

80's was/isn't exactly the best period for GRETSCH drums IMO.

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

... for Hard Rock Cafe.

Jeff Ocheltree confirms Bonzo used a medium weight stick (5B). In the 60's a 5B would've been considered a heavier drum set stick.

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

Actually 200 watt heads, and especially in the case of Ritchie Blackmore who used factory modded MARSHALL MAJORS that approached 300 watts.





Effortless feedback was desired, to prevent it,...

Re: Tom angles!!!!

... cep't it ain't a HH stand, its a boom stand. ☺ Points for the KiX logo BD head.

Love the LUDWIGS. Whichever head is in better shape is the top of the FT, seems logical.
