Whats the problem with any coating coming off anyway? I never noticed it causing a problem with the sound?
Unfortunately, this test didn't include a G1 or G12, which would be the responsive, open/resonant snare sound that you seem to prefer.
Carlock did. Anton Fig did. Kenny Aronoff did. Join the revolution! Evans Level 360.
