Re: Die cast (again?)

Top die cast and bottom triple flange is what Tama did on the SC model and it sounds great. I'm not sure how much difference a die cast would make on the bottom. I also have a Tama Dynamic Bronze...

Re: Finally! My First Final Phil Collins tribute kit

Very cool! I used to own a Ludwig melodic tom kit. It sounded great.

Re: Calling All Mapex Saturn Experts

The paint job looks great, but more importantly... how do they sound together. ;)

Re: New Tama Star finish.

You're right... my bad... Walnut. IMHO the snare can stand apart cosmetically (especially if it's metal) as long as it fits the kit sound wise. I think the Tama Hand hammered copper snare would...

Re: New Tama Star finish.

So what snare will you use? The matching Maple or that awesome Star Reserve Copper? I think the copper would look great with that kit. ;)

Re: New Tama Star finish.

I think it's basically a 2 ply cosmetic finish over maple, and I love what I've seen of it, as done by Tama. Japanese sen varies greatly, as can be seen here...

New Tama Star finish.

Re: All copper shell snare

I finally ordered one (not in stock, but expected soon). I know that old song and dance, but I got a discount and I'm not in a hurry. I'm hoping it lives up to my expectations. It seems to be a...

Re: Ludwig Fab 4 Classic Maple - questions?

For cymbals, in my mind, there is a slight trade-off for the consistency. It used to be great to find a "gem", and it really was one of a kind. I think a lot of cymbal makers realize that and...

Re: Arcanum Drums

I think I know what you are saying, but even the cymbal tech is over rated as far as "sound" is concerned. In the "old" days, they didn't worry about patina, how the lathing looked, how the hand...

Re: Arcanum Drums

I actually like and appreciate that, and as an engineer, it intrigues me. Nothing really looks "wrong" about them. It's just a different aesthetic. But my bottom line is: Do they sound good? ;)

Re: Arcanum Drums

I found some prices on some of the standard models and not too bad ($880 on a 6.5x14 copper snare).
I configured one to get a quote. I doubt I'll buy one, but just curious.

Arcanum Drums

Re: All copper shell snare

You got one! Awesome!
I too would be interested in your comparison with the Q Gentleman Copper.

Re: Worst Badge in the Business

I've been looking into copper snares recently, and this one looks very nice!
... except for the badge. :(
It still looks like an awesome snare though....

I was thinking of building another snare drum and came across a couple sites that offer either kits or complete snares at pretty competitive prices.
One was drummaker.net that offers a complete...
