Re: I like cheap snares

I agree with the Taye. (I own one), I also own a few low end, some mid-priced, and one or two "high" end snares, but the biggest surprise of all of them is a CB-700 Steel snare I bought used at a...

Re: Best snares on the market

For wood, the best I've played is a Taye studiomaple w/wood hoops. I have a 14x8, and it has everything. I can tune and muffle it to sound vintage, or not. Best rimshot I've ever heard, too!

Re: NAMM 2015 - what do you expect to see?

I agree. While Ludwig's quality can't be disputed, most of their wraps and finishes look.....old. Completely not to my tastes.

Re: 42 Strand snare wire experiment

One warning: you have to leave an even number of wires on each side to ensure even tension. So if you remove , say 5 wires from the left, you must remove 5 from the right.

Re: Double Snare Day

That MPX really looks sweet! Love almost anything Mapex. I Also had my eye on those Gretsch retro-luxe snares, been waiting for the price drop. Then I played one in a local drum shop. Hated it. Just...

Re: NAMM 2015 - what do you expect to see?

Me too. I played them at a GC once. The worst looking and sounding drums I have ever laid a stick on. And I have my doubts about the durability of their screwless lug system.

Re: Which Snare Wires to Get

I have to disagree with most everyone here. I have puresounds I put on a Black Panther snare of mine, and I don't like them at all. Can't get rid of a sloppy snare noise. Tried some others, and...

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

I disagree with most on this thread. I have had several items from Gibraltar that were good quality. I am generally impressed with their construction and quality. I also think that items like the...

Re: Input on PDP concept series welcomed.

I was in a GC recently, and played a Mapex Armory, Gretsch Maple Catalinas, and the PDP Concept, and the Concepts were far and away the best. Sounded a lot like a high-end set of Prfemiers I played...

Re: Tuning help for 18" floor tom...

It sounds like you are talking about sustain or resonance. Good tuning will help these, but on a floor tom, resonance is affected by how they sit on the floor more than you might think. There is a...

Re: Do You Like Metal Snares?

I recently picked up a vintage cb 700 steel snare at my local drum shop. I normally don't like steel snares much, but this one has such tone and warmth. I put a triple threat on the top, and away I...
