Re: When you go to a drum store...

Congrats again. They really are special snares. I have two, a 14" wandoo and a 12" cedar wattle.

Beauty. What type of wood? Rose gum?

Re: New Guru!

I've had a love affair going for a few months now with your drum's twin sister. The amazing thing is that she sounds even better than she looks. Played mine earlier today. Congrats, you're going to...

Re: anyone own or tried the DW concrete snare?

Concrete drums are known for their wam, musical tones. I'm holding off though until they come out with an asphalt snare.

Re: What is your drum setup pet peeve?

Gee, if you thought about it a bit longer, you could have come up with one or two more to completely alienate everyone on DW. :) How about drumsticks?

Re: Stock snares

I once owned a Mapex Pro M kit. Despite the chincy hardware, the shells sounded great, except for the snare. Definitely the weak link in that kit. Sounded horrible, with a plastic strainer that made...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Not if people hear my Tama Star or Starclassic Select bubinga kits. Fabulous wood species for drum shells.

Re: Guru Wood

Larry, the Santos rosewood is the one that doesn't become charred because of aesthetics AND sound. The padauk had been the one I'd carry in the other arm but I tweaked the cherry drum the other day ...

Re: Guru Wood

They're all very functional. The 3-position Trick is my fave. The newer Nickleworks strainers have a nice feel to them as well. I dislike the Dunnett just because it's a bit clunky and fitting the...

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

I can, and sometimes have to play softly. At anything below a medium volume level though, I loose my feel and groove. Mostly because when my main snare hits become the volume level of my ghost notes,...

Guru Wood

Thought I'd take some pics of my Guru family:

7x14 English cherry steam bent
7x14 Santos rosewood stave
7x14 Padauk stave
7x13 tiger wood stave

Each has its own unique voice and character....

Re: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Not fair to categorize this as just a drum solo. It was a rhythmic symphony with an underlying musical theme. As good as the art of drumming can get. Simon's extraordinary talents are best suited...

Re: Carter McLean does Dunnett Magnesium

That is how you demo a snare, which sounds superb by the way.

Re: dw colllectors experts, need info

Three grand is actually a good price for that kit. Talk him down to $2500 and it's a steal. Sorry DW haters, the resale market for these drums is what it is, warranted our not. A kit like that new,...

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

The bar is raised so high by the OP that I'm just not worthy of posting. Gorgeous kit Andy and that kick size is so darn practical. The only 12" deep drum on the planet that I'd love to own and play.

Re: dw colllectors experts, need info

Very unorthodox sticker but it surely wasn't built in 2000. The badge color shoots that guess down and if the X stands for X shell, SSC shells didn't come onto the scene until 2008 or 2009. The grain...

Re: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Simon is my favorite drummer. Love just about everything he does. This particular solo though, short of the intro, didn't do much for me. Much prefer other solos, including duet solos like this one...

Re: Popped in at Andy's for a cup of tea ...

If Andy parts with a kit like that for a guest coming over tea, I'd love to see what he parts with if someone stops by for something a bit stronger, say a nice single malt. Congrats on that...

Re: "Oh no - Not another new bearing edge!"

Guru = innovation. All head collar profiles though aren't created equal. A Remo is going to be different from an Evans 360, correct? Is this edge cut specifically designed for one particular brand of...

I have zero interest in these drums. Leave Fiberglass for insulation where it belongs.

Re: looking for new metal snare.

Oriollo, loved that you had a very specific vision and executed your plan. Sometimes my snares are impulse purchases that I later regret. Thanks for sharing your reviiew and enjoy that drum.

Re: Today, I came out . . .

Over the long haul that Sensitone's superior hardware will stand the test of time while the Acrolites lugs are pitting. Great choice.
