Re: New vs Classic Supraphonic

I dunno, I vastly prefer internal muffling over external.

I'd put an internal muffler on all of my snares, if it didn't mean their value would go down :P

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

^Eh, I like the aesthetics of that one a whole lot better with the single lugs.

Re: 13" vs 14" snare

+1 to this.

All of my snares used to be 13s.

Now I own 2 13" snares out of 15. Both are cool... but I generally prefer the fatness of my 14s over anything a 13 can provide... except my...

Re: New vs Classic Supraphonic

I should also note that the Acros I've owned are far more dry sounding than my Supra, even without the muffler engaged.

Re: Stave snare head recommendations?

All the stave/segmented snares I've had are very ringy. Usually I put a coated Ambassador on the batter of my snares, but that doesn't often work with my staves - the ring is often uncontrollable. ...

Re: New vs Classic Supraphonic

I don't think they sound all that different, if any at all. My modern LM402 is a ringy mofo, though, and would definitely prefer to have the internal muffler that my Acros have. No matter how much...

Re: Ludwig purchasing rant.

I just email Steve @ Russo Music and he gets me a quote back within a day on any special-order parts I need, plus he usually knocks off a bunch from the regular price. Dunno why it takes you so long...

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

I've been going for that "huge" snare sound for quite a while and, in doing so, have bought several deep snares:

Ludwig LM402 14x6.5
M4 Drum Co. Walnut Stave 14x8"
Keller Maple 14x8

Guess...

Re: Wood vs Metal

To be honest, I've never played a snare that was significantly louder than another. I've bought several snares where people have described them as being "very loud," but when I get them, they're not...

Re: 68 Supraphonic???

Yeah, I always have to readjust the muffler on my '65 Acro after each song. It usually turns off completely halfway into it. Probably just needs to be tightened, but I won't bother with it until I...

Re: Wood vs Metal

It was part of a liquidation of NOS Soundking shells someone sold off several years ago on eBay that a bunch of guys from Drum Forum jumped on. They were listed as "brass" in the ads, but they're...

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

I like really dry snares, and I find the deeper snares I own to be very ringy.

My '65 Acrolite is my favorite snare. Despite its shallow depth, it still continues to sound far bigger than my...

Re: Wood vs Metal

I have 11 snares and the ones I reach for 90% of the time are metal. The only wood snare I couldn't live without that I currently own is my 13x6" Addiction Drum Co. Oak segmented snare. That thing...

Re: Do You Like Metal Snares?

I own (3) Acrolites, an LM402 Supra, a 13x6" Steel Pearl, a 14x5" Pearl Free Floater brass and a bronze 5" shell to swap into the FF chassis.

Really, the only wood snare I own that I really love...

Re: New to me Acrolite

Nice!

I have 3 acros - a 1965 keystone badge, which is my favorite, a newer Blacrolite and a gray-speckled shell that I'm pimping out with tube lugs, single-flanged hoops and a P-86.

Re: First time buyer advice

No offense... but while those are all great things to look for - if I was selling a drum set to someone and they came over with all these tools and wanted to take everything apart, put it on a flat...

Re: SJC, yay or nay....

Friend of mine used to play an SJC kit and it sounded great - but then again, he also paid a boatload for it... so I'd hope it sounded great. Now he's switched to another "custom" builder, who makes...

Re: Gretsch Brooklyn COB or Pearl SE?

Ended up liking the BOB so much that I sold the Ludwig, because it sounded close enough and it was A LOT...

Re: First time buyer advice

+1, even B8s are worth more than $100, plus you get the hardware with it. $100 is about what you'd pay for a good 16" crash cymbal... so I'd just spend the extra cash and get everything in one go...

Re: Gretsch Brooklyn COB or Pearl SE?

What exactly are hoping that the Gretsch and Pearl will do that your Pork Pie won't?

I honestly don't see either of those as an upgrade to what you already have and rather, a lateral move. The...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

Wut?

I'd pay more for the aluminum shell. Sounds like a good deal to me... aluminum is the best metal <3



On a separate note - I'm about to buy a free floater and was curious if anyone has...
