Ever Heard Of A Hang Drum? Found This On My FB

All I can say is that I want one, 2 would be better.
Similar to a West Indian steel drum; more like a space drum.

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

I like the the Ambassador but I will try out an Evans G12, I have one already so it can't hurt just to check it out.

Thanks

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

That's OK, I get it, I appreciate the sound of my other 2 snares and at times you must go with what you know is right for the music.

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

That's a good one. I know you play jazz primarily; do you use a diplomat?
I bet that sounds great.

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

It is so worth it. The stores here in Toronto, and I checked, are out of stock so when I saw this on KIJIJI I knew I could not hesitate. The price was so good that even the extra $50 I paid to have...

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

Need to buy some batteries for my camera, on my to do list today.
It is very simple in it's appearance but since I mentioned the badge I will make a point of doing that.

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

Ha Ha..... I played it last night with a bit of gel and without; good all around.
The newspaper thing is a trick they used on R & B sessions, it creates a different tone, a fat sound.

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

Sorry, must have been something I saw in a thread. I put a square piece of newspaper on the snare, it gives a nice fat sound.
You recommended buying a new head and cutting it out in to a 13" circle...

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

Thank you Bermuda; It is in mint condition and the price was very good for these parts and it was worth paying the extra to have it hand delivered to me. I like the look, very clean.
On another note...

Re: Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

Tube lugs; gold, very tiny badge.
Looks real enough and in mint condition.
I am very happy. Thanks for the tip on the P85, I should do the same for my Venus model as well.

Just This Moment I Have Purchased A Black Beauty

Just noticing that there is no serial number or any type of sticker inside; it is a 2012 model. Should I be concerned? This was a private sale and the seller drove 60 miles south to deliver it to my...

Thanks for your kind words. I wrote that last night (morning) after getting back from 3 separate jam sessions and was pretty pumped. Now it is Monday morning and I am reminded of my age lol. The...

Therefore that Black Beauty needs to be with me now, My other snare drums will be neglected; because once it is in my embrace I shall not want to be with any other drum. Amen, so it has been written...

Remember Ringo's Inflatable Drums From The Cartoon? Now it Is A Reality

Not sure what to make of these They seem a bit like moving target.
Maybe good for a stage act or something along those lines.
