Re: Diecast Hoops

If it was on a new drum, probably a faulty hoop. If it is on an older drum, it was probably set on the drum crooked and unevenly tensioned for quite a while. It is fairly hard to warp a die cast, but...

Customizing Puresound Custom Pro snares

I love Puresound custom Pro snares, with their quick release features and anti-choke clip. The only drawback that I have with them is that they have a narrow wire count selection, only 24 and 20. So,...

Re: Snare bead - inward or outward?

No hearable difference, and this is not the first maker to do this. Adrian at AK drums has done this for some time.

Re: How do you characterize the sound of steel?

Steel seems more harsh (edgy) and ringy than brass, which is a little warmer, but still cutting. Aluminum is dryer, but with good crack. Heads make a big difference, though.

Re: Washer Material, Does It Really Matter?

I use nylon on all the drums I build for ease of tuning, as well as a splash of color to add some pizzazz, see attached . . .
