Re: Australian Artisan drum makers.... how can you tell whos the "real deal"

I'm fortunate to own a number of Brady and Fidock snare drums. My first Brady was purchased (I think sometime) around the early 90s. It is still my go-to snare drum, still running with original...

Re: Maple Sticks

I have been using Vater Piccolo sticks for a couple of years. I used to be VF 5A hickory devotee but I now prefer the lighter weight and feel of the sugar maple Piccolo. I sometimes switch to hickory...

Re: Photo: BRADY Natural Jarrah gloss drum kit

Re: Brady block

I'd check out a 12 x 7 wandoo block. Beautiful and full tone, killer top-end and attack. As mentioned above, Fidock drums are definitely worth a look. Here are some of mine:

Re: Steely Dan in Australia

I'm sorry to hear that you can't get to the show. The opening number at the Perth show was "Aja", one of my favourites too. Keith's kit sounded really nice, by the way.

Steely Dan in Australia

G'day. I have just returned from Steely Dan's Perth concert - their first port of call while here, in Australia, on their Shuffle Diplomacy tour. I was, yet again, blown away by the musicianship of...

Re: Seamless Metal Snare List

I'm sure the Sonor experts will be able to supply specific models and details, but I'm pretty sure most of the metal snares made by Sonor (up to about the time they released the Artist line of...

Re: Brady 12x7 Wandoo Block or Jarrah Block

Hello. It's a shame you can't get into a store to sample either of the drums you mention. I haven't played a 12 x 7 jarrah block or ply, but I can say that I was impressed with the different tonal...

Re: ADM and Brady snares History?

I have a brochure from ADM and there's nothing about ply shells in it. I'm no expert, but your drum looks like a Brady to me. I'll have a dig around in my archives and see if I can find something...

Re: My new BRADY drums

Congratulations. That's a unique snare drum, for sure. I haven't seen many Brady segmented shell constructed drums. Being a Brady, it'll sound awesome, no worries on that score, but it's rarity makes...

Steady Freddy is right. Not all the DW/Craviotto snare drums have Johnny's signature on the inside of the shell. The date of your shell, and the JC badge, suggests yours is more than likely a legit...

I know of only three companies that make "true" solid shells from felled, hollowed or complete logs: Brady and Spirit, out of Australia; and Canopus from Japan (with the Zelkova model).

Re: Calling all Aussies

Hi Kelly. Thanks for replying. Do you "dabble" in the obvious (read tone of envy) or do you also have a penchant for other exotics? Would like to hear from. Take care.
