Re: Soldering snare wires

Just had a clever idea, you could get a cheap pocket comb to hold the wires secure, nip the ends with a beefy set of wire cutters then remove the old solder from the end piece and re-secure with JB...

Re: Ever had a band or genre of music that you shouldn't like...but you do?

Lana Del Ray. I don't care for her voice and her weird Indie, Millennial wristcutter tunes but DAMN her songs are catchy. I even learned one on guitar and jokingly tell my wife that I'm going to...

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

I'll take that a step further Earl Palmer may be one of the greatest, as in most influential, drummers of all time and it is a crime how overlooked he is.

Boutique drums are vanity toys for...

Re: Probably getting my kick drum cut down - what size?

I'd go 20x14, Classic size.

If anything, it'll increase your resale value on that kit. Those "beer can" kicks were a passing trend that I absolutely hated. Slicing that baby down to a classic...

Re: Opinion : Is this a strange combination ?

Five'll get you ten Magnus from Wallopus can recreate that finish.

Either way, it doesn't look bad.

Re: The ubiquitous LM400

I would look into a vintage or vintage style wood snare with a thin shell and re-rings.

I know it's not what you want to hear but most of that is going to be in your hands. When I had to play...

Re: Is it just me?

If there is music playing or something that will make my snare wires buzz then I'll drop the throw off. I guess I'm just polite like that.

However, I always loosen my HH clutch when I get up from...

Re: What are your favorite earplugs?

I have been learning to play with earplugs, the volume is a little too much for me with the rock bands I have been playing in.

I bought some Hearos and I'm really not happy with them, can't hear...

Re: Are there simple things you struggle with even though you've been playing a while?

What is a closed double stroke roll to you? From my understanding, an open roll is doubles and a closed roll is a press/buzz roll.

What really helped clean up my doubles was practicing Chapin's...

Re: I have Cubital Tunnel... what worked best for you guys?

I think I know who gave you that idea! Did you have any trouble using these with trad grip, or was it just your R hand?

Re: Anyone regret having your drum cut down?

I have had 2 bass drums cut down and never regretted it.

-A 24x17" Yamaha Stage Custom cut down to a 14" depth. Still have it.
-A 20X18 Drumcraft cut down to a 14" depth. Ended up trading that...

Re: Rogers Dynasonic Snare Frame... How Does It Work?

Go for it! You can find them on Sweetwater or direct through Big Bang, plus they come with wires. Really a much different beast with the wires installed.

Re: Grip and finger length

Same with Steve Jordan, he's so far back on the stick I just don't know if he can play doubles. He sure can groove though.

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

I have been using Puresounds for years. Either Blasters or Concert 12 strand.

In a bout of cheapness/curiosity, I ordered a set of the cheap Gibraltar wires. Going to AB them with some Puresounds...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

Reading through this thread, I hope my daughter takes up the drums. It would be so much fun to teach her the ins and outs of gear hunting and assemble a kit for her as she grew up.

Re: DW Snare Drums?

I am one of those players. I have a lot of very nice gear, most of it vintage and I'm not ashamed of my cheapness. The hunt for deals on used gear is my hobby. I like scouring pawn shops and used...

I think people just thought they looked cool. Personally I hated them but I'm kind of a grumpy old man when it comes to new drum trends, don't let those 16" hats fool you.
