Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

The Grover wire sets tend to sound closer to Concert snare sets than others.

Re: Best snares on the market

If money is no object, without a doubt, a Guru snare gets my vote every time for a wood drum. In metal, any Ludwig brass, bronze or aluminum snare, or AK snare.

Re: S-Hoops vs Yamaha Aluminium Cast Hoops

My experience with s-hoops is that they are a great combination of mass and design that tends to tame some unwanted overtones. They have great rigidity and offer equal tuning. My reason for sometimes...

Re: Snare Beds????

They should work, if it is the sound you want.

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

This is a great thread. A lot of folk are looking to vintage sound drums, but focus mainly on shells and heads. In the 30's -40's, snare wires had a more tubular, wound shape. Metal wound over silk...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

Plating tends to stiffen and brighten wires. I use Puresound snares, and particularly recommend the concert line for a drier sound. Very crisp and articulate. The 16 strand set has good balance for...

Re: The Snare Wires General Info Thread

There is a lot of variety in wires. Not only in wire count, but, as you have discovered, material and coatings. There is another thing to consider, and that is the coil configuration. The number of...

Re: Snare Beds????

An average is up to 1/8" deep and about as wide as the distance between lugs for wider snare sets. There is usually a gradual curve to it. I would consider this profile for 42 strand wires. If it is...

Re: Dry heads for ludwig blackrolite acrolite snare?

If you want drier, and I like drier, consider an Evans Genera, or Genera dry.

Re: 14 x 8 Maple Snare

That should do it! I was always a fan of 5" deep drums, and have come to the point that I prefer 6.5". I recently heard some 7" and 8" deep shells, and now I am in love with that deep sound!

Re: Good place for Custom Drum Wraps

Gotta go with Bumwraps. I had generally good experience with them.

Re: The often ignored drum effect

Sonicly, the dead center of the drum is just that, dead. The most resonant place is just off of center, somewhere about 2/3 of the way in from the hoop. Each drum may be slightly different, and...

Re: Drum Builders, I have a question.

If you like the 14x6 tom, I can pretty much assure you that a 16x8 is not going to sound the same. Another animal. Adding 2" in diameter will make a lot of difference. Adding 2" in depth is going to...

The often ignored drum effect

I don't know why I never considered this sooner. Often guys go to Youtube videos for sound samples (which is iffy at best) and obsess over drum sound, then further obsess of shells, heads, hardware,...

Re: Dunnett Quality ?

I find it astounding that Ron would let something like that pass. I consider him to be one of the elite drum builders, and I would contact him (or seller) immediately. Someone has to make that right,...

Re: Why does the Vintage drums sound so good???

In my opinion, tastes change, and so do makers. Many older vintages sets (40-50s) were made for clubbing, jazz, and big band. That was the main sound then, and technology and tastes are reflected in...

Re: Question about Snare Beds

Unless you are using wrap around snares, cable snares in particular, there is no extra benefit of using concert snare type beds. Standard beds should be fine. Three or four inches long (or the...
