Early Bill Kreutzmann Snare

Anyone know what snare Bill used in the early 70's? Could be a Supra but not sure.

Re: I have a snare that won't snare.

Check to see that you have the right reso head on there
I had a buddy put a clear ambassador under his snare and it made the same sound you describe

Re: Sonor force 3007

I'm not very good at valuing drum sets, but I'll tell you that kit is a real winner. I've had mine for 2 years now, and it still blows me away every time I play
If I had an unlimited budget, I would...

Re: Yamaha Maple Custom Snare MSD O115 vs Maple Custom Absolute ASD-0105

I had a custom absolute for few months and didn't care for it. It had a ton of pop, but wasn't very full sounding. Especially in the center of the drum.
I've heard the standard maple custom has a...

Re: Which would you choose, Ludwig or Yamaha?

Update: picked up the MCA snare for $250, played around with it, had fun, but it just wasn't what I was looking for. It has SOO much pop and crack, almost couldn't handle it! Also the sympathetic...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Maple

It's a decent deal. Your money would be well spent
Keep in mind you'll have to spend $200 in hardware on top of that, possibly more for other stuff
There are also other companies offering good...

Re: Problem with my 13in snare. HELP!

I owned that same snare for a couple years. I remember it being very sensitive.
I think the problem is the batter head. Get a coated ambassador on there stat!

Re: Mapex Mydentity

To me, the mydentity series sounds a bit flat of tone from what I'm used to hearing from Mapex.

Re: Ludwig strainer sucks

I'm starting to think that it's actually the strings coming loose, like someone said. But, I can't really tie a tighter knot, I double knot it and get it as tight as it can go around the strainer,...

Ludwig strainer sucks

Anyone else have issues with the snares coming loose on the p85? I swear, after every song I play I'll have to give the knob a few turns just to keep it consistent. Am I the only one?

Re: Where can I get drumhead tension screws?

How are tension rods measured? It appears the most frequently bought is 1.5 inches. Is that just the length of the threads, or does that include the square top?

I'm selling a snare and the screws are mismatched. I'd like to put some new ones on without having to shell out too much money, or wait a week for them to be shipped.

I was just going to go to the...

Re: Another Supra Question...

To answer the other question, I'm doing this because I bought mine refinished. It was a great price, but I feel like I'm not getting the real supraphonic sound.
And since the hardware is good on...

Re: Another Supra Question...

Thanks for the quick replies.

Here's the pic. It's on the bay. It's from some company that has quite a bit of feedback. Although I can't find their website.

Also, the discoloration is just a...

Re: Another Supra Question...

And I believe the round badges are from the 1980s? The shell should still be the exact same thing as the 1976 right?

If I buy a vintage b/o ROUND badge supra shell, can I just throw on the hardware from my 1976 supra? The hoops, throwoff, lugs, everything. Are there any potential problems with this idea?

Re: 12" tom out of round

A bit of both, I think. Drumheads seem to be lopsided and have a tighter fit than the other toms. Also, I've noticed that sometimes when I can get an OK sound from it, I'll put it on the rack to use,...

Re: Which would you choose, Ludwig or Yamaha?

Is this the Nouveau? Some guy just posted this on CL like an hour away from me. He's asking $300 OBO, hoping I can bring it home this week for $250. Really digging the look on this one.
