Re: A New Believer In Brass Shells

Thanks a lot! Very happy with my Pork Pie so far. :) I'm trying out different tensions for the emperor head right now. It's a little on the medium side. I feel like cranking it up.

Re: A New Believer In Brass Shells

Couple the Supras with head changes I'll have to make for the Pork Pie, plus a Dunnett or a Trick throw-off (the Pork Pie's seemed a little stiff), plus some Istanbuls (also recent, pleasant...

Re: A New Believer In Brass Shells

Yeah, I had the COB Supras in mind. I didn't realize there were aluminum Supras haha! I might just save up for those next. How much do they go for, used?

Re: A New Believer In Brass Shells

There's that too! But I tend to attach Supras with John Bonham for some reason. So supras are aluminum, right? I thought they were also brass like the BBs, or maybe bronze. Man, I've got to get my...

Re: Always out of breath, need to get my stamina up somehow.

Agreed. But if the doctor clears you for exercise, you might wanna try boxing. It jump starts your cardio because it's immediately strenuous, and it also toughens your leg muscles. Might help with...

Re: A New Believer In Brass Shells

Andy, I did follow up on the narra stave snare I talked about with you before. The builder used Brady drums as a sort of peg, so the shell ended up being almost a half-inch thick at 14"x5.25". It has...

I think I'm starting to get a better idea of the mythical status attached to Black Beauties.

Re: A New Believer In Brass Shells

Definitely, man. My dad has a Pearl 13x3 brass piccolo that he also loves. When I was starting out, I didn't get why he loved it so much. Looking back, it actually sounded pretty good. Mic it up well...

A New Believer In Brass Shells

This is just an outburst-of-glee post. Sorry mods.

I've usually stuck with wooden snare drums for reasons of personal taste. I've tried stock Pearl steel snares and borrowed a friend's Ahead...

Re: Who uses Moongel?

Well said. I usually play loud music in a pretty big venue, so I tend to let my drums ring as much as they can. For quieter passages, I might use a moongel at the very edge of a snare drum just to...

Re: Just arrived: a Guru Drumworks snare

This is absolutely stunning, man! Congratulations!

I'm surprised it's 1.5" thick. I always thought Guru was more into thinner shells. But those guys know what they're doing, obviously. It looks...

Re: What size is your main snare? Why?

Mine's a 14x5.5 Mapex Saturn Snare. I personally prefer 6" deep snares, but 5.5" is deep enough to do pretty much the same things I'd use 6" snares for--which is a lot of things. I love it not just...

Re: Has anyone used Narra wood before?

I'm actually thinking of taking up stave shell building too in my spare time, so I can help them out in the future.

They told me that they haven't gone thinner than 16mm because they don't want...

Re: Has anyone used Narra wood before?

This is true. The main buyers of narra here are furniture makers. Until our government instituted a log ban for it, narra was almost exclusively the wood of choice for wooden furniture and wooden...

Has anyone used Narra wood before?

Apparently, it's the Southeast Asian relative of African Padauk. Does anyone have any experience working with this kind of wood? What's it sound like, compared to, say, Maple? Or Birch?

Re: HELP!! Brass Snare Question

My cross stick sound got fatter after I started using s-hoops. I had 2.3 mm triple flange hoops before I started using them. Did you have die cast or wood hoops on? I imagine those would give you an...

Re: Show us your Mapex kits!

Oh, well, that explains why I haven't seen his name pop up in months. That might also explain why there haven't been as many cyber brawls in this forum recently. I kinda miss following those. :D

Re: Upgrading the Mapex saturn snare

I hope you're not planning on selling it, because if you fiddle around with it long enough, it'll give you what you want. I've played hard rock, funk, even jazz with this snare. I've used it both...

Re: Well I Didn't See This One Coming... (DW Collector's Series Concrete Snare)

Does anyone else worry about the hoops getting damaged, or is it just me? I feel like it's a silly thing to worry about.

But I suppose the toughness of concrete isn't too far from steel or brass,...

Re: What Snare Would You Choose?

No offense, but isn't it kinda dangerous to be indifferent about how the drum's going to sound? I once bought Ahead sticks, partly because I wanted to spend less on buying drum sticks in the long...

Re: crush sublime tour vs mapex saturn studioease

If I didn't have the opportunity to check out both drums, I'd go with Mapex Saturns. In my (limited) experience, not a lot of drums sing as well as they do. With the right head choices, they can be...

Re: What happened to the Brass shell of Pearl Free Floaters?

Oh, great then! I'll go ask them about special orders. How thick are those shells, btw? 1mm? 1.5mm?

I wasn't able to disassemble the snare drum when I checked it out (darn!), but it sounded...
