Re: So,I Got a Brass Sensitone..

"invert it over the head"
Granted, I'm going senile but I'm not quite getting this. Does he lay an older head on top of the batter head?

Re: Snare Advice!

Or you can buy the Acrolite. It's the same shell and strainer as the Supra but it's about 1/3 the price. I've been using Acros for years now and it really is the best snare at the price that they...

Re: Looking for a snare like Lars Ulrich's (No haters please, lets keep this professional people)

Amen to that Bo!! My first live concert was James Brown and I haven't heard a live sound that tight since! It was all in the skill of the musicians. James didn't let you mess up. If he pointed to you...

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

When it comes to Ludwigs drummers are like an old married couple. We'll be having the same arguments twenty years from now with at least another 20 to go8^).

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

I think that I'd take all of the knobs off of his guitar and chuck them. You don't mess with other people's instruments. If he does this to another drummer he might end up losing sonething that he...

Re: 4x14 brass snare

Both Tama and Mapex used to make 4x 14" Bronze nares in a natural bronze finish. That color goes with just about everything and they sound great. The Mapex comes with cast rims, at least mine did. I...

Re: Ludwig P-85 rant

I seriously think that Ludwig has a huge warehouse somewhere full of nothing but P-85s. They aint budging off that design until that warehouse is empty! With drums as good as the Supras and the BBs...

Re: Sleeved Washers

I absolutely love these things! They kind of act like the lug locks that you see. They seem to insulate the tuning rods unless I've totally lost my mind, a very likely scenario. Anyway I'm in the...

Re: Sleeved Washers

Hi,

I didn't see any mention of specials on the Hendrix site. Was that where you saw it? I need some more of these little rascals. Thanks!

Re: Mapex Sledgehammer vs. Tama Black Brass

I named my Sledgehammer "Molly" and Molly is a dreamboat! This is a very sensitive but powerful snare. I haven't heard the Tama yet but I always love their stuff. What is the price differential...

Re: brass vs steel sensitone

I'm not sure how much of a difference a 5.5" vs. 5" shell depth will make but I can vouch for the Elite Sensitones. If you want a deeper, fuller sound you really do need to go with the brass. I like...

Re: Straight Edge Snare Hoops

drumfoundry.com has a hybrid that has the single flange with the "clips" built into the hoop. I haven't had a chance to try them out yet but they do look interesting.

Re: refurbished, customized acro

How do you like that throw-off? I've got an acro with a bad P-85, imagine that, and I've been looking at that strainer. Did you have to buy the adapter that they have at Drum Foundry? You did a great...

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

I have a sledgehammer and it's one sweet snare! VERY powerful but it can purr as well. It's heavy and would do well in the situation you're describing. Taye also makes some great snares including the...

Re: Mapex BP Cherry maple drum issue

I wouldn't bother with this one. You can find these on the web for much cheaper than you can repair this one. That's not "Good Condition' in any language.

Re: Yet Another Sensitone Query

I've had both the old Sensitones as well as the newer "Elites" in 5", 5.5" and 6.5" depths. I haven't seen or heard any difference in sound or quality between the pre-Elites and the Elites. Both...

Re: Good quality mid-range snares?

I've owned or tried the Sensitone Elites, Acrolite and Supralites. All of these are great drums. The Taye stainless steel drums are also worth looking at. I actually prefer the sound of my Acrolite...

Re: Pork Pie 7x13 Cherry/Bubinga Snare Drum

I have the "Cherry Pie" 7x14" and it's a monster! Great tuning range and a good, full body. I had it tuned pretty high: batter to a C and resonant to around an A and it sounded great. The engineer...

Re: Pro Ludwig, Anti Guitar Center

It might have been easier to throw the bass drum into the back of the car and drive to Monroe8^). I only buy from drum stores. I tried ordering parts from the local GC and they kept getting lost.

Re: You get what you pay for

I couldn't agree more. You can't cut corners on cymbals. Most of the cheaper cymbals sound like trash can lids. I don't care how good the person working the sound board is. Cheap cymbals sound like...

Re: Snare drum advice please

Did you try looking at cocktail drums? They're basically a floor tom with the kick pedal beater facing the bottom head and a small snare off to the side. These are great drums for buskers or anyone...

Re: Restored 1980 8x14 Pearl Brass Snare Drum

That is one great job! What did you use to remove the tarnish? If it soundsa as good as you have it looking then it must be one sweet snare. Congrats on such great work!
