Re: Snare Problem

Re: Snare Problem

They don't seem to be bending at an angle great enough to cause the problem you mention. It's kind of like the 1/16" deviation of the shell... not enough to make a difference. They do angle, very...

Shell is off by 1/16" and hoop is off by as much as 2/16" across one lug.
