Re: Black coated heads...
So the shop called me this morning, and after work I went in to pick it up. Just popped the old one off and tuned up the new Aquarian Hi-Velocity nice and med-tight... It sounds really good right now, but I don't have any time to actually work it into the kit yet... That'll have to wait for tomorrow. One thing I noticed right away is that it really cuts out the ring of the steel. I usually use an evans ring on this snare, but as soon as I put it on, it sounded dead. I think I'm going to like this a lot... If the black coating really starts wearing off quickly and looking rough, I'll probably switch over to the regular white, but for now, this snare looks bad-ass! (I just realized that picture is TERRIBLE quality, I'll take another and post it with the kit tomorrow)
