Re: Black beauty snare wires snapped.

Re: Black beauty snare wires snapped.

You need to remove the broken one and remove another one on the opposite side

If the one that broke is the 3rd from the left , remove the wire that is 3rd from the right.

Re: My Half Time Shuffle

Wouldn't even try. I like it the way I play it.
Shuffle with right hand and left hand plays "tri-plet". Makes for a Swiss triplet without the flam in there.

Re: Two up - 13/10/16 config - Mounting issue

Hang them off slightly to the left (reminds me of family guy Star Wars) on the same stand. A 13" will be a little trickier then a 12" (heavier and bigger)

Re: How to stop playing slightly ahead of the beat?

Getting confused now. Not sure if you are talking about playing behind/ahead as a whole or just a feel thing.
