Re: Inherent snare buzz problem (video)

Could be that one of the wires is loose. First borrow some snare wires from another drum and see if that solves your problem. If it does, examine your snare wires and cut away the loose one.

Re: Snare with natural reverb....

try tuning the bottom head relatively loose, not super loose but less than normal. Net loosen the snares all the way. Then tighten the snares until they sound right. The next step is to tighten...

Re: Firchie Drums

I tried a Firchie Snare 20 years ago at a drum store in New York. It looked exactly the same and sounded great. I don't know what basis you have for calling the design a slieshman ripoff, Firchie...

Re: Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute - Good Deal (I know, I know, sorry)

Same here, I've had a kit and 2 snares with nouveau lugs for over 2 years. I think that the lugs are great and have had no issues.

Re: Attention Tune-Bot Owners!

Not a constant 100 Hz. Rather a constant ratio of 1.6 or 1.7. That is, the lug pitch is between 1.6 and 1.7 times higher than the drum pitch.

Re: Attention Tune-Bot Owners!

Hello,

I purchased a tune-bot this weekend and have been experimenting with it. I think that it's an amazing tool and it is helping me develop my own each. I tuned up two of my drumsets using it...

Re: Is it time for a new snare drum or a teacher?

If the drum or hoop are out of round, just return it and get a new one. It could have been dropped in shipping. Zzounds has them for $149 with free shipping. Try the stock heads first.

Re: Is it time for a new snare drum or a teacher?

It takes time to learn how to tune properly. For now I would suggest that you try to tension all of the lugs evenly (by tension not by ear) and only make minor adjustments of only up to half a turn...

Re: Is it time for a new snare drum or a teacher?

Are you turning the tension rods one at a time or using a pattern where you tune one a little then the opposite one?

Re: Is it time for a new snare drum or a teacher?

The drum looks nice. I warned you not to use a clear ambassador as a snare batter head.
Coated ambassador is a much better choice.

Re: Is it time for a new snare drum or a teacher?

The Tama metal works will be fine if you don't want a used acrolite. the stock head will be fine. I think that it's an evans reverse dot which will sound great at higher tunings. I don't recommend ...

Re: Is it time for a new snare drum or a teacher?

Call Sam Adato in San Francisco and tell him that you want a used Acrolite in perfect mechanical condition and cosmetic condition does't matter. Age also doesn't matter

Re: So disappointed/ annoyed right now- Yamaha MCA

Re: Drum kit for a new church band - advice?

i would recommend a Yamaha Stage custom 4 piece, either with a 20" bass drum or the new bop kit. The Yamaha hardware and tom mount balls will take a lot of abuse and hold up better than other kits...

Re: Travis Barker Signature Drum Set! Reviews? Comments?

So It seems that that is no requirement to be a DHP artist other then buying a kit from them.
This sounds more like a "vanity endorsement" where the buyer pays for the privilege of calling himself...

Re: My sons first kit

I second the Sonor Safari. It's smaller (16" bass drum) cheaper and a little higher quality. It's part of the 1007 line rather than the 507. You can get one sent to you from Shane @...
