Re: Good quality mid-range snares?

On any good day you can get an Acrolite for about 75.00. I seen one in Modesto GC a couple weeks ago for 79+change, with a case and stand.

On a lucky day, you can score a decent Supraphonic for...

Re: Well...I didn't think I was being loud

This totally nails it. The last active gig I had required us to play out 3-5 times a month, mostly at, of all things, retirement assisted living facilities. The rooms we played in were seldom...

Re: Snare drum exposed to high temperature - PLEASE HELP!

Last year there was a Rogers Dynasonic Maple in lacquer finish sold on ebay that looked like it had been refinished in crackle paint. It wasn't. It was the result of days and days being left in a...

Re: Keep my Rogers kit or sell it?

Just to give Brook Mays a fair shake......

These were the lowest entry level they sold. Brook Mays intent with Rogers was a resurrection and ultimately to build upper mid level product. At the...

Re: Question about this snare snare drum

Re: Dynasonic Lugs

I looked through my parts bin and found 3 good Dayton era spring lugs. These might be a bit heavier than the ones on your drum, but that is not a bad thing.
I also found two failed lugs from a...
