I have been asked what would make an excellent snare drum outfit for a beginner student (school band.)
I know all the big drum companies have kits with stands and bags. But what would make a great setup as the quality of parts and pieces might vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Fantastic information all!
We are going to proceed with a "Fat Cat" snare set on the Slingerland. We've already have a Fiberskyn Ambassador on the batter side.
I should have mentioned before, this drum will likely be used as a concert snare and not for marching (it's kinda small.) Also, might...
I recently bought a Slingerland Haskell W. Harr 10x14 parade snare drum. It's dated 1962.

Not all Black/White badged Ludwig drums were made in Asia!
I have a made in USA 6.5x14" Rocker for sale right now. It is the original mirrored chrome wrap over wood!

PM me for more info.
I have a 1962 Slingerland marching snare drum that I would like to update the original strainer on.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a relatively easy replacement?
It would be nice to change out the butt plate too...
