Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

Bass drums don't have snares, are much better, etc. so it follows that bigger variations are required to appreciably change the sound.

Not that a half-inch on the snare is appreciably changing the...

Re: Any UK shops left with lots of cymbals to try?

I went to the Wembley Drum Centre when I was in the UK which had a pretty good range of cymbals from all sorts of manufacturers. I agree with Andy as well. You folks seem to have better access to...

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

Man, I feel sorry for them all. What an unfortunate performance. :(

Good singing, though!

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

Yup. Different sounds, different utilities... my deeper snare takes a lower tuning better but it's, y'know, just a difference in sound. Depends on how much 'body' I want.

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

Sheezus.



No arguments there :) Weirdly, I know they make another clutch that is also in the low-end price range with the same tightening mechanism as the QR clutch but with a threaded base....

Re: The side snare

Stealing my thunder, eh??

I think the "high-tuned/low-tuned" dynamic is the bigger concept here. I tried my usual setup once (an orbinated one) with a high-tuned main and a low-tuned snare placed...

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

My QR clutch with the smooth center doesn't have this issue. Maybe it's just a taste difference.

I should throw in my defense as well- I have the QR clutch, the QR drop clutch, the 9607 no-leg...

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

Ahahahaha :) don't forget the adjustable-size ballcap, plus a "Brent's Hang" 3-DVD set.

Gibraltar definitely could use some paring down of their catalog. Though it is understandable how they got...

Re: Contemplating a brass-for-brass snare trade

I think the other party is getting the raw end! The Sledgehammer is a very nice snare by all accounts. Enjoy it.

That's gorgeous. Very nice studio sound.

Re: Does figured grain sound any better than non figured grain?

I dunno, but my curly maple inlays certainly look fantastic :) Birdseye is a classic look as well.

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

All things in moderation. People enjoy soda, fast food... whatever. It's not all they eat, in the same way that dance music isn't the only music these consumers listen to. (They also listen to the...

Re: Founding Mars Volta Drummer Blake Fleming Here

Good to have you here, Blake. Having listened to a couple seconds of Time's Up, I can understand why it's getting this kind of acclaim :)

Re: Fyberskin or Skyntone or ?? for Pearl Tom-Bourine?

Most, if not all, 'real' tambourines (i.e. intended for orchestral use) I've seen have had a branded Fiberskyn-type head. I'm not sure what the difference between FS and Skyntones are from their site...

Re: What sticks to a snare drum? (Help stop my triggers from bouncing away)

I don't have any experience with this issue but it seems that pictures of solutions would help a lot.

Re: Travis Orbin "Project" EP

I have no idea... I loved Project 15 when he originally released it and I still do. Safari is great too. The instrumentation is pretty barebones, here, but I think the patterns/content are good...

I'm inclined to say middle as well. Certainly, having a bass drum right against a wall is going to affect the sound. I seem to...

Re: Chris Dave snare?

Sure, a coated Evans G2 or Remo Emperor would be what most people get for a typical thick-ish head. If you want to keep it a bit more dry, Evans has plenty of heads like that, i.e. the Genera HD Dry...

Re: PDP Concept Finish

As PDP puts it on their site, the hoops are 2.0mm on toms 12" and up, 1.5mm on 8" and 10" toms, and 2.5mm on snares. I'll let the OP answer about the bearing edges.

Re: Chris Dave snare?

Yeah, it sounds like an aluminum snare with a thick top head cranked up. The size is definitely 14x6.5 but you can get that kind of sound out of pretty much any aluminum snare in the 5.5-7" depth...

Re: PDP Concept Finish

Yeah, looks like it's a Sweetwater exclusive finish. I quite like it, more than the "natural charcoal fade" available on the birch ones normally.
