Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

For years, I just played 5" deep snares, and still love them. but I am playing a 6.5x14 that I made a lot, not because I like it better, but it better matches the type of music I am playing. I like...

Re: The Supra returns ;)

I listen to all kinds of metal snares, and there are many great sounding drums. Supras keep rising to the top of the heap, along with Acrolites.

Re: looking for new metal snare.

6.5" Acrolite gets my vote every time. Love the supras too LM402, but the Acro is a killer.

Re: What happened to marching snares?

I am a long time fan of the older drums. I marched in 1970 with Rogers wood shell snares. They were awesome, and I wish they would come back. I made my own wood shell 14x12 snare for my own...

Re: New to me Acrolite

When you think of it, $129 for a classic legendary drum is a pretty good deal. Killer drum!

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

There are snares of supposed outstanding quality that are more costly that gurus. I think Guru snares are fairly priced for the astounding workmanship and design. No, not cheap, but fairly priced for...

Re: Will un-even bearing edges bend hoops?

I agree with the above post. It is also my experience that there are a lot of drummers who do not know how to tune drums evenly, even with perfect bearing edges. Tension on each rod bust be the same...

Re: Musicial drumming?

Listen to the great ones, like Joe Morello, Gadd, and others, not for the solo stuff so much, but how they ride along with their groups. Less is more in many cases. Rock solid steady beat, just...

Re: Found some ancient recordings!

On a different note, I found that my parents have some "ancient recordings" too. They have some 78rpm recordings of the old Jazz at the Phill, with original drum battles with Gene Kruppa, and others...

Re: My Gurus through my PA.

For a long time, Ron Dunnett did not vent his snares, and his reasoning is on his site. It became is issue with some people, so now he offer a vent that can be opened or closed manually.

Re: Best drum teacher in youtube

Re: "Bum Wrap" Drum wraps

Here are pics of two Bumwrap snares that I built. The 14x5 is a one of a kind custom wrap, Petoskey Stone; the 14x6.5 is their wood inlay series. They are of good quality, and easy to install.

Re: New snare build with 5 ply Keller Magnum shell

I really liked the look of this wrap, so I did it. No other reason. if I want to in the future, I can take the wrap off and fool with the wood later, since it is taped on, not totally glued. but, I...

Re: New snare build with 5 ply Keller Magnum shell

In theory, I agree with you, and my ultimate drum would be a solid wood shell (Guru!) The only difficulty for many would be the fact that once you get past the 3 point to 1, the cost of drums goes up...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

There will always be different opinions on whether vintage Acros (as well as Supras) sound better than the new ones. I have played both, and can honestly say that given same heads, snares, and equal...

Re: The matching snare

Although it is not necessary, I like snares that match the set, or are at least complimentary. Since most hardware is chrome, chrome snares like chrome plated supras (lm400, COB, etc.) look good...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Congratulations! Just great workhorse drums, and by changing heads, snares, tunings, you can make it sound like whatever you want it to. Don't ever let it get away!
