Re: So you're going to a band audition...

Re: Good ear plugs(or other sound attenuation methods) for liver performance...?

Re: 2014 Snare Drum Olympics - The/our results!

What is clear to me is that most top end snare drums sound pretty much the same ! Seriously, the differences are pretty small, which is maybe partly why they overall voted the odd man out out No. 1....

Re: Die-cast or not die-cast hoop? Snare advice.

There are plenty of a/b comparisons of hoop types on snares on YouTube.
