    Assembling an Excellent Student Snare Drum Kit

    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. Here are...

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    Hey folks, thanks for all the advice you sent my way on this project! I thought you might want to hear the Haskell Harr with the 14" 24 Strand Fat Cat Dual Adjustable Snappy Snare Wires set.

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    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...

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    Let me clarify my original question. What I should have asked is, "what snare set is recommended for this type of snare drum." Rather than how do I attach it to the strainer.

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    Hello, I recently bought a Slingerland Haskell W. Harr 10x14 parade snare drum. It's dated 1962. By the catalog I believe it to be the model 536F in Mahogany. I'd like to continue to use the Zoomatic strainer, as it is in great shape. However, I'd like to get away from the individual snare...

    Ludwig Rocker?

    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! It's in beautiful shape and was recently tuned up with new heads and is ready to play. PM me for more info.

    Recommendations for Zoomatic Replacement

    Hi Folks, 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... Thanks!

    Mike Fasano Autographed Pork Pie Snare Drum

    Exactly! Thanks johnwesley. The last thing I want to do is make potentially false claims that this signature is real! Could be some Warrant fan trying out their forgery skills for all I know!

    Mike Fasano Autographed Pork Pie Snare Drum

    I did not witness Mr. Fasano personally sign this drum. It is signed on the batter head and on the drum shell (see pics). I have never acquired a drum like this. I am not a Warrant fan, so I don't know this drummer. My question is does this drum, which is a very nice drum, have more re-sale...

    Gretsch 4105 Throw-off Issue

    I have a mid-sixties Gretsch 4105 snare drum. One of the rivets in the throw-off linkage has broken/worn out. Is there a way to repair or replace these throw-offs? I attached a couple pictures for your info. As always, any information is appreciated!
