Re: Ludwig classic maple snare

its a really controlled snare sound -- in my opinion about the most classic sound you can get. Not a lot of overtones -- but not too dry either. They have a character all their own.

They are...

Re: Right hand thumb wearing out.

Re: Acrylic shells vs. Wood shells

I don't know your recording experience but the mic picks up so much more than we hear live. I would not bring anything acrylic to a recording session without a wood-shell back up. I think the fact...

Re: DW Performance Series

i actually agree with this. As someone who is in branding and advertising AND who owns a DW as well, i think this is a bad move. Yes they will sell more drums, but it will damage the reputation of...

Re: What snare drum to buy?
