That's the 1st time I've been called "lucky"!!! :-)


As for recordings..these days I prefer to produce and use younger drummers. I want to help them. This was the case with a funk band a few months ago. I was booked but called in two guys in their early 20's. I played percussions later on. I'm getting old and would prefer the young be given a hand. One did a better job than the other and it was a bit frustrating. But the harder player learned from it. My percussion overdubs were done in one take each 2 weeks later.

A more usual set up for me these days.

Notice the pandeiro :-)

Would you put it a s say, around a World Max drum quality?

Thanks!

Make no mistake, the LM 306 is a top flight drum with better hardware than found on US made Ludwig drums. For a start you don't have to put up with the dreaded and horrible P85 strainer! But you may need to upgrade the heads. Mine came with crap Asian made Evans heads. I whipped them off and put real heads on, US made REMO's and it sounds incredible. As you can see I also put a die cast hoop on but it was not necessary.


NOTE* I also changed the snare wire and put a Pearl bronze wire on the LM 306.

Hey Wy, how does the Dixon snare sound? If you've seen the Dixon thread I actually did a good job of coating the brand, but that was based on 3 peices of hardware that I bought that all failed miserably.......it was enough to put me off Dixon for life. But in the interest of fairness, I've never played or even heard one of their drums. Care to review it? Are the drums a pleasant surprise or are they on a par with their mediocre hardware?

The snare is very well made. The hardware is fine. Good die cast hoops. The shell is strong, it's marble! It has a very bright cracking sound. Not the most versatile of drums but it is unique.

Be aware, Dixon make loads of high end products, it is just that the supplier here only brings in the B grade stuff. Somehow this snare got through.

Thanks mate.

Yes there is more, I want that old new LM 400 from 1964. I reckon I'll miss out though. Collecting drums is not that hard, one just has to work one's butt off to afford it. Which is what I did. These days I get some instruments for free but most involve some cost. I just got off the phone with my Brasilian company and expect a shipment of sticks and instruments within the next fortnight.

There is one, a Sonor Designer 14x5" maple. It is quite astonishing. Without a doubt the most powerful snare drum I have ever heard. It is not pictured. Hopefully soon. But they are all great. The Sonor Artist Beech is staggeringly good. That particular drum has become quite well known. I've had singers approach me to tell me how great it made their recording sound. People I never even met!

The fat Brady is quite something as well. Currently out on a session.

Wy, I am left speechless by your collection! If I'm ever in your neighbourhood I would love a tour (I live just outside the ACT).

ps. the snare in my avatar is a 12"x5" jarrah snare I made with free floating hardware. Do you have any custom made snares/kits?

I don't know where to start, so I won't. That's an insanely stunning selection, exceeding fetish levels. I could spend weeks at your place just trying all the stuff I've never heard of. What fun, oh what fun.

You could spend weeks at my storage spaces just trying to find stuff! Let alone trying it out. And the thing you need is always right at the back and at the bottom.

It's always the case.

Thanks mate.

You should be the curator of the Snare Museum! Have you documented all of this? How about a book?

Regardless, I hope you have this properly insured. Truly an AMAZING collection.

All my gear is insured and locked away in secure storage spaces. I doubt my collection is worthy of a book. It's not like Steve Howe's guitar collection or something. :-)
